53" Travel-Size 21-stringed Rosewood Guzheng with Chinese Painting (New Design) 

"Praising Lotus III"        唐韵135公分红木旅行古筝 “赏荷”


* Travel-size 53"instrument 135cm x 36cm x 10cm

*Single-piece paulownia soundboard & backboard

*Rosewood frame and professional rosewood bridge set

* Free guzheng picks & tape / tuning wrench

* Free Musedo Professional Guzheng Chromatic Tuner

We are proud to introduce the new Sound of China travel size guzheng.  This beautiful guzheng is custom-designed by Sound of China Guzheng Music All the making materials including soundboards, frames, strings and bridges are carefully selected by Sound of China professionals.  It's the signature piece of our store.

The top and the bottom sound boards are both made by a single piece of paulownia that were dried using special Shanghai method that provides the classical sweet tone of the guzheng.  The frame is made by rosewood decorated with Chinese painting.  This is the third generation "Praising Lotus".  We put in extra efforts to bring this travel-size comparable to the sound quality of a professional grade standard size guzheng. 

First, we adds the thickness of the soundboard, and redesign the sound chamber to enhance the sound quality and volume.

The bridges are made of professional grade rosewood bridges.  These bridges are tall and stable.  They are not the plywood bridges as seen on other travel-size guzhengs.  The strings are professional quality strings using German music wire.  Together,
they will keep the guzheng in-tune, and do not go out of tune easily.   

Second, we use extra fine materials.  We use premium quality soundboards and rosewood frame to ensure the sound quality of this model is as full and rich as a standard size guzheng.  The sound of this guzheng is sweet, rich and resonant.

Last, yes, we want to make it affordable so everyone can enjoy this beautiful instrument.  It's an excellent quality and craftmanship in a budget price. 

It comes with a free set of finger picks and adhesive tape, rosewood bridge set, tuning wrench, guzheng chromatic tuner, soft bag and spare 1-5 strings.   We provide set-up instruction that's easy to follow.  Help on set-up and playing is also offered over the phone or internet free of charge.  A set of 2-piece stands can be added for an additional $30.  You can purchase the package with 2-piece stands on this listing:

Guzheng Size Reference:

Under 100cm(<40") : Toy replica  Please be aware that anything under 100cm is generally not playable!!!  There is no volume.  All strings sound flat, and the strings spacing are really small for your fingers.  It's more of a novelty item than an actually instrument.

100cm -125cm (40-49") :  Baby Guzheng  This is is made for kids who have smaller hands.  The sound is ok.  The bass is flat because the bass strings don't have the desired length to keep the pitch steady.  The string spacing is small for an adult, but ok for 4-6 year old kids to start learning.  

125cm-155cm (50-61") :  Travel Guzheng  This size is made for convenient traveling.  The sound varies from different makers.  A good one can sound as good as a standard size, but a bad one sounds just like a baby guzheng.  The string spacing also varies.  Some makers make them smaller, and some makers make them just like the standard ones. 

160cm+ (>61") :  Standard Guzheng  This is the standard size for guzheng.  All the strings have the desired length to keep the pitch in tune.  String spacing is standard for adult's fingers.  Sound quality varies on different models and different makers.
