If you have noticed, there are string/fishing line bindings on most Chinese Dizis. Some of the Dizis are made from pieces of bamboo and the bindings are used to cover/hold the joints together. To some extent, the bindings prevent the Chinese Dizi from cracking, but mainly it is to make the Dizi looks nicer with the bindings.
They also have a tape over the bindings to prevent the bindings from unravelling.
These sure look nicer but there is a chance that the bindings might unravel if you are not careful with them.
But worry not! It is quite easy to tie the bindings, if they come off for whatever reason.
Here’s a video we made showing you how to tie the bindings:
It does take a bit of practise to make sure everything is nice and taut.
