箏弦, String

鋼弦古箏 Steel String Guzheng

最近病了近兩個星期,被囡囡傳染,我和老公都傷風了,日日咳的厲害,所以很久沒更新這裡了。最近看到一位網友出售一個18弦的鋼弦古箏,賣$40加元,十分便宜。不過上網找找資料,談論分享有關鋼弦古箏的網站真的不多,售賣鋼弦的地方更是十分少。聽說鋼弦是需要不同的力度,由於弦線比一般的尼龍弦線較幼細和軟,也有可能很容易斷裂。一些網友告知,大部分的鋼弦古箏都是16弦的,這個18弦的大多是特別訂造。我還在考慮是否應該買回來試一下呢?

I have sick for almost two weeks… My daughter got sick from her daycare; subsequently, both my husband and I caught a cold from her. We have been coughing non-stop. That’s why I haven’t been able to update this blog for a while.

Recently, I saw on craigslist that an 18 steel string Guzheng is on sale for $40 CDN. It seems to be a very good price. After doing some research online, it looks like not many websites talk about steel string Guzhengs. It is quite hard to find places to sell steel strings. I heard that this type of Guzheng requires different strength to pluck. This is because steel strings are thinner, softer and more fragile. Some Guzheng players told me that most steel string Guzhengs have 16 strings. So, this 18-string one was probably custom made. I wonder if I should buy it to give a try. What do you think?
