Once a year, we will make a trip to Shanghai to visit the factory of Shanghai Dunhuang musical instruments as we are the sole distributor of ‘Yun’ brand in Singapore. Main purpose is to touch base with the owner Mr Shui and also to see what new products have came up over the one year.

One of the things we are particular curious about are the new designs they come up with for the Guzheng. There is not much decorations you can do with the Erhu, Pipa or Zhongruan, but with the Guzheng you have 2 blank sheets of wood to do your art at the top and bottom of the Guzheng.

So here’s what we saw on our recent trip:

Unique design. This actually has been around for sometime. Just that we have not brought it in before.

This one sticks out like a big neon sign. This is the first time I’ve seen yellow pastel colors on their Guzhengs. Not sure I like it but its the first out of Dunhuang’s new releases to be sold.

    Hi, I’m particularly interested in the one with the engraving of the birds. Is it possible to get more details on it?
