Chinese Instruments Moving Out Sale (Part 3)!
Here’s the final part of our Moving Out Sale!
For part 3, we have actually posted the pictures and information on our Facebook page here under the album – Clearance sales.
There are lots of interesting things there, but here are some of the things that you should look out for.
1) Shanghai Yun Brand Aged Rosewood Erhus, Gaohus and Zhonghus
There are a bunch of used Erhus, Gaohus and Zhonghus from Shanghai Yun brand made from aged rosewood. These instruments are produced at a time where you get really good quality wood at an affordable price. Since they have been used before, the bright edgy tone (that most westerners cannot stand it seems) is gone and what you have is a warm, mellow and sweet sounding erhu. The Zhonghus are responsive, mellow and deep sounding. The gaohus are very responsive too and have a rich and pure tone.
Erhus: SEH03, SEH04, SEH05, SEH06, SEH07, SEH08, SEH09, SEH10 SEH15, SEH16, SEH18,
Gaohus: SGH01, SGH02, SGH03
Zhonghus: SZH01, SZH02, SZH03
2) Suzhou Zhongruans with bone frets by Huqiu Company
Huqiu Company is one of the oldest instrument factory in China. We have a few of these old school Zhongruans with bone frets that has a nostalgic feel to it. At $190, it is a decent instrument that sounds warm and nice. And we think the trapezoid hardcase is out of this world…
