There are also two types of folded zither: one is ordinary zither, and the other is log zither. Ordinary folding kites are generally treated with blowtorch spray paint on the built frame. Due to the dry weather in the north, it is easy to crack, and it is not easy to repair after the paint surface is cracked. Therefore, the service life of the general folding kite is about 6-8 years; The zither is made of natural wood, and it is easier to repair after being broken, so the service life of the log will be longer than that of the ordinary folding zither, generally about 10 years.

Digging kite: It is an arc-shaped panel that is directly dug out of a paulownia wood. After the wood is selected, it should be air-dried outdoors for at least several years, in contact with the air for a long time, and adapted to the dry climate in advance, so it is not easy to crack and has a long service life - 80 years.
