Experience the Timeless Beauty of Gu Zheng for the Engine Player

Crafted with meticulous care by local Chinese music producers and powered by Engine Player technology, the Gu Zheng offers unparalleled authenticity and detail. Its extensive sample library, dynamic articulations, and true-to-life sound bring centuries of tradition to your fingertips.

Dating back over 2000 years, the Gu Zheng is one of the most beautiful and revered traditional Chinese instruments. Equipped with 21 strings and movable bridges, this Chinese plucked zither is known for its distinct playing styles, including pitch ornamentations and tremolo techniques. Produced by Zhang Jian (China Conservatory of Music) & Ma Jing (ADSH) in collaboration with Engine Audio, Yellow River Sound's Gu Zheng is a testament to the dedication of local Chinese music producers, who possess an innate understanding of their cultural heritage and a passion for showcasing the true essence of Chinese instruments.
