Erhu Belt Clip and Small Sanxian

In one of my previous posts, I talked about Erhu belt clips for playing the instrument standing up.

Well, I ordered a box that came with my latest shipment of instruments.

Here's how it works:

Frankly, I think the workmanship still has a lot of room for improvement, but it does the job. You might need to twist and turn, press and knead to make it fit nicely. In view of that, I am going to sell it at a low introductory price of US$8. It's not up on online store yet, but here's the link if you need one urgently: Erhu Belt Clip.

Another item I am going to list is the Shanghai Dunhuang small Sanxian.

Its not exactly a new product because I have it in my stocks for quite a while already. I just haven't listed it. We also have medium and large Sanxians as well. Do email me at if you are looking for one.

Here's how the small Sanxian looks like:


  1. Do you have it at your shop? How much does it cost?

  2. Yes we do have it in our shop. We are located here:

  3. Are those the same belt clips that the Twelve Girls Band wears? Theirs seem to fit very well and they move all over the place :-)

  4. Yes it is those type of belts that allow the user to move around while playing the Erhu. The fit is not perfect because different bases of Erhu are constructed differently. But it does fit well enough.

  5. Can you post a video clip on how the small Sanxian sound like?

    Also...what tuning is it in?
