Quality and Assurance
Being musicians ourselves, we know the pains of performing on an instrument that is shy of perfection. Each and every instrument we sell has been selected by an instrumentalist in the respective instrument. E.g. An Erhu teacher would only select erhus, and not other instruments. This is to assure that each instrument that you would have purchased has gone through and thorough and rigorous selection process, to ensure that you would have the best in its class, and not a subpar instrument
