Guzheng

Welcome to buy guzheng at Sound of Mountain Music. The Guzheng is a traditional Chinese instrument dating from the Qin dynasty (c. 200). It is the ancestor of the Japanese Koto as well as several other zither-like instruments found across east Asia. A modern Guzheng typically has 21 strings over movable bridges which are mounted on a large resonant half-tube box made of wu-tong wood, and the instrument is typically about 1.63m long. The strings are tuned by both moving the bridges and by adjusting tuning pegs.
