Hello all.

I live in Canada and hoping to buy a guzheng. I live in a small community, so there are no guzheng stores available nearby. So far I've found two options that fit my budget.

[b]Option 1:[/b]
Ocean of Music (樂海) - Rich Peony (黑胡桃木富貴牡丹古箏)

http://www.musicofmay.com/collections/guzheng-1/products/ocean-of-music-professional-rosewood-guzheng-dragon-and-phoenix

Option 2:
Dunhuang 696D

http://www.orientalmusic.org/guzheng/696D.html

Has anyone have experience buying instrument from the Bamboo Grove? They quoted me $600 CDN including shipping.

I also wonder if anyone heard of Music of the Orient. They have Dunhuang 694v, which I'm interested in. But their website doesn't look very professional... I'm a bit skeptical of ordering from them.

Thanks in advance!

I personally don't know these two places and can't deliver any comments to you. Why don't you go check Sound of China's website or send an email to their store's info@chinesezither.net and find out which one is suitable for you. I bought two guzhengs from them, the first one was Dunhuang Burma Padauk 896E for home practice. Dunhuang guzhengs are good for beginners. The other one was Tianyi brand. Most of Tianyi's top and bottom sound boards are air-dried single piece paulownia.
