Even after learning how to bow I am still not getting the same sound as you. Will that just come with more experience or am I doing something wrong?

Dear Ling, When I play an up bow (moving my right hand towards the erhu) on the inner string, the pitch is slightly lower than when I play a down bow (moving my right hand away from the erhu). I tried to play around with the pressure, speed and angle of the bow, but nothing seems to do the trick. Do you have any ideas what could cause this phenomenon? Can you give me some advice how I could solve this problem? Thank you!

Hi Panna Its to do with the quality of the erhu. Maybe you can have a look if the bridge is right in the middle of the erhu ( between the Left and right of the drum). or the Qianjin is not too loose. you can always firm up a little with the felt under the bridge. And also make sure to put a little more pressure when playing in bowm, so the string is resonated properly.
