The Erhu with the weird snakeskin

I have in my possession an interesting Erhu.

The Erhu is made of black sandalwood from Suzhou.

What is interesting is the snakeskin that was used on the Erhu. Its a species of python different from the usual python. The skin colors are lighter and brighter. Looks quite attractive actually.

It sounds mediocre initially. But after letting it stand and playing it for a while, the sound improved tremendously. Now it sounds rich, mellow and has good volume.

If you like something different from the rest, this is the Erhu for you.
