New Erhu Hard Case and New Strings

A while ago I was selling some top quality 'designer' erhu cases. Although they look good, they are quite bulky and heavy.

Recently we brought in the 2nd generation of such erhu cases. They are flatter, lighter and the shape is also not as awkward. They've replaced the stainless steel locks with black Matt colored ones. Personally I like the look of stainless steel more.

It only comes in one color:

This is a 1st generation red case, but with the black Matt locks.

We have 2 of the 2nd generation erhu case and a few of the red cases with black locks.


Another interesting item we are selling is Hua Mei Niao Brand Erhu strings from Beijing.

We've tested the strings on the erhu and we like the results. The tension feels good and the notes are responsive. Volume is quite balanced between both strings as well as the lower and higher registers. The inner string sounds warm and the outer string bright. Run in takes about 2 days if you play it intensively for 5-8 hours a day.

There is also one for the gaohu.
