Sorry, I can't do that. the subtitle doesn't come out well, so there is no point to do that. Ling

Hi Ling! When u want to put the erhu in its case, do u need to loose the bow, take it out of the two strings, and put it in with the erhu in its case, or do u just leave the bow along with the erhu and put it in?

No, you don't need to move the bow, just gently bring it up and hanging on the peg.

Bonjour, je suis contente d’avoir trouvé ce site car je vais débuter le erhu, vos explications sont claires et j’ai réussi à avoir quelques réponses à mes questions, je voudrais vous demander pour la partie haute de l’instrument, à quelle hauteur on fixe le chevalet , et est ce qu’ doit être fixé ou peut bouger ? les deux cordes seront- elles à coincer dedans? Ce qui veut dire que du bas vers le haut l’espace Entre les cordes rétréci? Et Elles se touchent au niveau du chevalet ? Il y a t’il des mesures idéales qui sépare les deux cordes dès la bases (en bas). Merci déjà pour votre réponse
