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.
