How to maintain the Guzheng panel? To do this, you must pay attention to the maintenance of the guzheng panel.

Maintenance of Guzheng Panel

Guzheng panels have no paint to protect the wood, which is bare and will come into contact with the air to oxidize. Coupled with the violent vibration of the high-intensity playing panel, the panel will quickly become weak, and the guzheng tone will return to "stuffy".

Many guzheng lovers have a blind spot in their understanding of guzheng maintenance: in order to save the strings, they always change the strings when they are used and broken. The result is a mostly "muffled" sound in the bass range. If the sound of the guzheng is dull, move the zither to the left and pull the strings tighter. Although the sound is brighter temporarily, it will soon become dull again. As a result, because the strings are too tight, the panel is overloaded and vibrated for a long time, and it also ages quickly, and the sound becomes more dull.

Therefore, it is recommended that the majority of guzheng lovers, if they practice more often and play the piano with great strength, replace a new set of guzheng strings (especially in the bass region) about 1.5-2 years. If you don't play the piano a lot and don't play the piano vigorously, you can postpone the replacement of the strings.
