I believe you got your answer elsewhere but for others interested: It's a "Multi Tonic" zheng, 多聲箏 or . There are 37 strings on this. 21 are tuned to the pentatonic scale, by the head, and 16 are tuned to the pentatonic scale, by the tail. At least in the tuning diagram I've seen their range is almost identical with one note higher on the 16 string and one note lower on the 21 string side.

I've heard it was invented in 2011 but I don't have a reputable source on that.
