This is a round shaped gaohu by Zhejiang maker YKM. This gaohu has a loud and crisp tone colour but might not match the Concert Grade Aged Rosewood by the same maker in terms of sonority and tone brilliance.
YKM uses good quality aged rosewood and snakeskin and together with his fine workmanship, this gaohu is indeed an ideal choice for advance players. YKM, or Yu Kaiming, is a renowned maker that was once commissioned by Xi Jinping to make an erhu for the German Chancellor.
