The chinese Erhu, 2 string Fiddle

This is taken fro my old website from 2003-4 I believe.  Just found it again and thought I would re-post it.

Old damaged cheap erhu made of elm and another light hardwood.  I replaced the broken snakes skin with vellum and made a base of yew wood.  The instrument was then refinished in semi opaque black/brown shellac and restrung.


With the new base and painted black



here is a sound clip of a cheap snakeskin erhu I have to to compare
