SOC should have more Tianyi Nanmu later this year.

Scarlet Bird has been using Yuesheng strings for a few years now, based on my recommendation.Smile Any way, they switched to Yuesheng strings, so basically the strings will be exactly the same strings as on the Tianyi. So you can choose based on your sound preference. They have different characters.

Thank you for your prompt response, Yukina. It is very cold here in Toronto -15 with no windchill, it will be a different if with windchill, may feel like -20 or -25.

I am glad to know that SOC is getting the Nanmu later this year.

I personally can't tell the difference between the Tianyi and SB. What I know Tianyi and SB both air-dried their soundboards, while Tianyi can produce a very clean sound and SB is more robust and resonant. I will go back to the videos and check carefully.

Perhaps Sian SB may suit our weather better than the Tianyi. My teacher's Dunhuang has cracked already underneath, in the back board area when I peaked under, we need to put vaseline (petroleum jelly) in the side board and some string holes areas to keep the moisture.

Yukina, the next time, please briefly state the difference between Tianyi and SB and some buying tips. Much thanks.

Happy Valentines Day to everyone.

Regarding the expense of finding a teacher, they are quite expensive here in the San Francisco Bay area too. This lady in Madison, Wisconsin (Emay) does online Skype sessions which are much cheaper, though I haven't tried them yet. I'll give it a try soon. I'm sure, there are others who do online sessions too.

To stay on track, I bet some expensive local visits to a real teacher will be required, but maybe the expense can be reduced by doing more frequent, cheaper, online tutoring, and fewer of the more expensive local teachers. That's my plan.

I would suggest you to go check your local community centres to see if there are any "group" lessons. They usually have classes open on Saturdays.

Yes, you do need to visit a real teacher to monitor your progress and to give advice on finger practices, speed improvements, etc.

Best,
