Hi!

I've enjoyed browsing this forum, and have just joined so I could participate and ask several questions about the guzheng.

I have a guzheng at home (don't know what brand/model) and I've noticed that the string spacing is wider than the dunhuang my teacher has (a good 3-4cm wider over the 21 strings). Is there a standard spacing for strings, or is it different for different brands?

There is not really an official standard spacing, but Dunhuang spacing is considered as industry standard. Some brands such as Jinyun do have wider spacing.

Hi Yukina! Thank you for your reply.

It's a bit annoying playing (particularly performing) on a guzheng with different string spacings, but I guess it's one of those things we can't do anything about.
