This question is a problem that plagues most beginners. First of all, it is stated that the quality of guzheng produced by regular guzheng manufacturers is generally good, and has its own unique tone style. You can choose a guzheng brand that suits you according to your personal preferences, but there are many guzheng brands, and if you want to choose from them To select a truly powerful guzheng manufacturer, the following principles should be followed:
The most basic guarantee for the quality of guzheng is the long-term reserve of raw materials, and the long-term reserve of raw materials requires a lot of funds, that is to say, only large enterprises have the financial ability to reserve materials for a long time, and these are not possible without certain places. The technical level of such large factories is also better than that of ordinary small factories. Among them, the Dunhuang Guzheng in Shanghai ranks first in terms of scale and sales. Of course, the professional Shanghai Guzheng and the current reputation and cost-effective by "Zheng-making" Dingyun Guzheng was founded by "Ghost Talent" Tang Zhengjun, so the friends who like Shanghai Zhengjun are Dunhuang and Dingyun.
Just like the stability of a computer system, new things will always have some unknowns. Of course, new manufacturers will also have some excellent guzheng works, but when you don't understand it, it is not recommended to be a tester. You can recommend it to everyone. Several old and well-reputed manufacturers, first-tier manufacturers like Shanghai Dingyun, Taiwan Hongsheng and Xi'an Dongyun are among the best in the industry in terms of product quality and production strength, and rising stars like Yangzhou's Longfeng, Yiya, Tianyi Biquan, etc. They also have a historical foundation of more than ten years, and the stability of the products is also recognized by everyone, so they can grow healthily in the guzheng world for so many years. Dingyun 903 series Bihe Xiaoyue/Sapele, Dongyun's 087A, Dunhuang's 694DQ/694KK, Hongsheng 575 polyphonic zheng, etc. are all well-known guzheng stars. This model is equivalent to the brand endorsement of the manufacturer. It reflects the quality and quality of the manufacturer's products, so when you have no experience, you can buy this mature model without losing money and the price is also very transparent.

Dongyun guzheng traditional craftsmanship, mellow tone
