The Zhonghu is like the alto of the Huqin family. The construction of a Zhonghu is similar to that of an Erhu, but with a larger neck and resonator. The strings are tuned to a fifth lower than those of an Erhu.
Zhonghus produce a deep and mellow tone, similar to that of a Viola but more expressive.
This Zhonghu, made with Aged Rosewood, produces a rich and smooth tone, with an underlying sweetness.
The high registers ring out well. Tone and volume of inner and outer strings are balanced.
