The origin of the three-stringed piano

In the literature, the name of sanxian first appeared in the Tang Dynasty, but it is uncertain whether the sanxian in the Tang Dynasty is the same as the modern sanxian. The earliest records of modern sanxian began in the Ming Dynasty, and it is said that it appeared in the Yuan Dynasty.
Sanxian is also a traditional Manchu musical instrument. For example, it is recorded in the "Emperor Manchu Ceremony to Sacrifice God and Heaven" that Sanxian is used as one of the musical instruments to play Kagura. He Changlin, a scholar of the People's Republic of China, advocated that the sanxian was invented by the Manchus.
