Involving musical instruments

Banhu (pinyin: bǎn hú) is a kind of stringed instrument with a history of more than 300 years in China. The timbre is high, firm, and has strong penetrating power. It is the main accompaniment instrument for northern opera and rap.
Zhonghu (pinyin: zhōng hú) is a musical instrument restructured on the basis of the erhu. All erhu playing skills are suitable for Chinese hu playing. It is still a less sensitive instrument. It is best at playing some lyrical, vast singing melodies, long harmonics and not very complicated tone patterns, and less fast and colorful melodies.
