The maintenance of erhu in summer must be the concern of many Hu friends. I summarize the following points for your reference only.
First: the maintenance of python skin. After playing the erhu, use a clean small handkerchief to wipe off the rosin on the skin and body of the violin, and then lift the strings with a small wooden stick (or harpsichord) slightly higher than the harpsichord so that the harpsichord is not pressed on the violin. on the piano skin, so as to avoid moving the bridge up and down and rubbing the piano skin. Or loosen the erhu strings a little, and be careful not to move the position of the bridge, because if you move the bridge, the vibration point will be different each time, thus affecting the sound of the erhu. In the humid southern air, the skin of the piano is prone to collapse due to moisture. You can put a desiccant in the box. When you are not practicing the piano, put the piano into the box in time, and loosen the strings of the erhu to prevent the skin from collapsing. When the air in the north is dry, you can use a small container to put the sponge and add water, and then put it in the piano box to keep it moist. If you don't pull it for more than a month, it is recommended to put some herbal packs for deworming in the erhu box, or mothballs. To prevent erhu bow and python skin worms.
Second: Pull the longbow every day for a period of time to further improve the resonance effect of the piano skin. Rub the rosin about two hours after playing the piano to enhance the friction force of the bow hair and not damage the bow hair due to the lack of rosin. Do not use dark viscous rosin in summer, light-colored translucent rosin is suitable for use.
Third: The erhu should not be exposed to direct sunlight, especially in summer, do not put it in the trunk of the car for a long time, the temperature will be too high and the erhu will be damaged.
Fourth: In summer, players are prone to sweating. Many people apply prickly heat powder or talcum powder to the tiger's mouth to keep the handle changing smoothly. It is not recommended for everyone to use this method here to keep the instrument and hands clean. Practice more to increase your grasp. Sex is the focus of the practice.
