Product Details

What it is

Being the biggest in the ruan family, the Daruan has the lowest pitch and is also known as the bass ruan.

Song Guang Ning Ruans are the most popular brand of Ruans in China at the moment. They are endorsed by Liuqin / Zhongruan master Zhang Xin Hua.

Their instruments produce a tone that is sweet, resonant and clear. The frets are in tune and the tone and volume of different strings sound very balanced.

This Beijing Daruan is made of basswood with steel frets. This makes the tone of the ruan rich, bright and sweet.

The sound holes are shaped like soaring birds.

About the Maker

Song Guang Ning was born in 1934 to a family of farmers. Seeking to improve his family's well-being after years of drought, he ventured to Beijing at the age of 15 and through fate, got into contact with a small Chinese instrument workshop. In those days, there were no machinery suitable for making Chinese instruments, so every single instrument was hand crafted from start to finish. Only after many long arduous years did he first start a new factory, the "Beijing Chinese Instrument Factory". Song's crafts include a vast range of Chinese instruments, with his Zhongruan and Sanxian being the most sought after instruments.
