      WELCOME TO OUR RUAN STORE!

      The Ruan is a guitar like instrument with a round body and four strings.  It is played with a plectrum and produces a rich and full bodied tone.

      There are 4 different sizes of Ruan (in order of descending pithc): GaoYinRuan (high pitched), XiaoRuan (Small), ZhongRuan (Medium) and DaRuan (Big).

      Ruans produced from different parts of China have different tone characteristics as well.  Suzhou Ruans have a more mellow and warmer tone which Beijing Ruans have a brighter and more metallic tone.  Shanghai Ruans are somewhere in between.   

      If you would like advice on what type of Ruan to get or need a video demo, please email us at admin@easonmusicstore.com.
