New Batch of Lu Lin Sheng Erhus

Our new batch of Lu Lin Sheng Erhus just arrived yesterday.

For the uninitiated, Lu Lin Sheng is a famous Erhu maker from Suzhou. His Erhus have won several local and international awards.

Personally, I find that the workmanship of his Erhus to be very good. The snake-skin on the sound resonator is done pretty tight, so the tone on the bright and sharp side. There is however, a lot of room for the tone of the instrument to improve. You need a few months of constant playing to break in the instrument. When that is done, you'll find an Erhu that is so sweet and warm.

This batch also includes Erhus made of Premium Aged Rosewood:

Here are the rest:
Ebony Sandalwood
Small Leaf Sandalwood

By the way, this Japanese Erhu online store is selling Lu Lin Sheng Erhus at 2-3 times the price of mine. You can check out the website here.
