Hello everyone.. I own a Yangzhou Tianyi (扬州天艺) Guzheng for more than a year. When I came across this forum, I just happened to know that there is a signature for each Guzheng and different manufacuring process to produce a Guzheng.. Here's my question :

1. How do I know if I have a signature from its master who made the Guzheng and whether my Guzheng has some sort of authentication to show that it is original from Tian Yi and not fake?

2. How do I know if my Guzheng was air-dried or oven-dried (apart from telling the characteristic sound it produces, since I am a new student learning Guzheng and has no idea how to tell apart the sound characteristic) ?

3. Does air-dried guzheng DEFINITELY produce BETTER sound than oven-dried or both are EVENLY matched in terms of sound quality?

Any help will be appreciated Smile

Usually, the signature is on the backboard, or inside the sound hole.
You can check the color of the soundboard to see what kind of drying method is used. Light color is air-dried, very dark color is flame-dried. They sound different. I think the air-dried ones have warmer and earthy tone.
