it lookes like a nice instrument

do you play it? I would be very interested in a sound file :rolleyes:

around here we have very similar instruments, but they've all been replaced with the western violin, which is easier to play (believe it or not) and with a much greater range and volume. there are a few players of the old instruments left though, particularly the turkish kemenje.

*wonders where he can find erhu recording*

COOOL :D

it's a really nice instrument,

you know, I find that traditional bowed instruments generally produce a feeling that the western violin can't (arguable). its this feeling of simplicity, and beauty, I can't really describe it, although I think people know what I am talking about.

besides, when one of these instruments is played in traditional chinese style, nothing on earth can sound more "chinese" (at least my opinion). Not even the pipa or the gu zheng.

I would still love to have a recording of you playing it (or anything else :p).

don't be shy. we are very supportive people :D
