On sale is an adult size Rosewood Pipa by Shanghai Dunhuang 'Yun' musical instrument factory. The body is made of Rosewood and the pegs and frets are made of black buffalo horn.
This is a professional series, much better than TBPP3 or TBPP2 in terms of materials used, construction and tone of instrument. The buffalo horn frets and pegs gives an added brightness and clarity to the tone produced, while the rosewood body gives it a warmer and richer tone.
It comes with a semi-hard case, 2 pc instructional VCD, synthetic nails, extra set of strings, plaster and a tone generator.
If you have a little more budget, and since your instrument is going halfway around the world to meet you, might as well get a better one.
