Pipa (Chinese: 琵琶; pinyin: pípá) is one of the most popular Chinese instruments and has been played for almost two thousand years in China. It is a four-stringed Chinese musical instrument, belonging to the plucked category of instruments. Sometimes called the Chinese lute, the instrument has a pear-shaped wooden body with a varying number of frets ranging from 12 to 26. Another Chinese four-string plucked lute is the liuqin, which looks like a smaller version of the pipa. The trapezoidal yangqin (simplified Chinese: 扬琴; traditional Chinese: 揚琴; pinyin: yángqín) is a Chinese hammered dulcimer, originally from Central Asia (Persia (modern-day Iran)). The yangqin was traditionally fitted with bronze strings (though older Chinese stringed instruments used silk strings, resulting in their, and the yangqin’s, categorisation as a silk, or “si” instrument), which gave the instrument a soft timbre. The erhu (Chinese: 二胡; pinyin: èrhú), also called nanhu (南胡, “southern fiddle”), and sometimes known in the West as the “Chinese violin” or “Chinese two-string fiddle,” is a two-stringed bowed musical instrument, used as a solo instrument as well as in small ensembles and large orchestras.
