I often hear people say that this qin has a sandy sound. What does the "sandy sound" of the guqin mean?

What is the meaning of

The "sand" is the hoarse noise that appears under the strings when pressing. There are only two situations in which "sand sounds" appear. One is that the top of the piano is uneven, and the other is that the strings have knots. The unevenness of the piano panel is generally caused by the deformation of the panel or the bulging of the broken lines or the peeling of the paint tire. Knots on strings are smaller bumps (nimples) on top of the strings. The string summary is easy to handle, just change the string. The deformation of the surface of the piano is more troublesome. If the deformation is slight, a small wooden strip such as a toothpick can generally be placed at the Longgu or Yueshan to increase the height of the strings. If you still can't solve the problem, you need to find a violinist to repair it.
