The guqin, a seven-stringed zither, is China's oldest stringed instrument, with a history of some 3000 years. In Imperial China, a well educated scholar was expected to be skilled in four arts: Qin (the guqin), Qi (the game of Go), Shu (calligraphy) and Hua (painting). Historically, the guqin has been viewed as a symbol of Chinese high culture, but today only a few thousand people can play it, and it is rarely seen in China. 
 

The guqin is a unique instrument which needs to be hand made by specialist craftsmen using special wood, lacquer and a high degree of skill. Most guqins sold in general music stores, even in China, are virtually unplayable and are suitable only for hanging on the wall for decoration. Professional qin players never buy such instruments or recommend them to their students. Not only are they unable to produce an acceptable sound, they can even cause injury to a student's hand. 

We carry a wide range of guqins made by specialist qin makers, all of whom are supervised by professional guqin players. We are the only place in the US that carries guqins certified by the North American Guqin Association.

NAGA New Silk String
Professional

• The sound quality is as good as that of silk strings made before and during the 1950s, which you hear on old recordings.

• These strings are as smooth and loud as top professional steel/nylon strings. You can play them as long as you like and they will not cause any pain in your fingers.

• The sound is the pure and clear sound of silk and there is almost no fingering noise.

• The yingtou (knots) are already neatly tied, so you do not have to tie them yourself.

• The strings are very long-lasting, strong, and stable, and can be easily be tuned to standard pitch without breaking.
