Chine Instruments

Post by Alejobambu »

Greetings, for what reasons Chinese instruments have such a bad reputation worldwide, definitely not worth buying? Thank you

Chinese instruments have experienced growing pains. Some of the earliest instruments tended to be of very poor quality. As they have matured, their quality has improved. Today, it is somewhat mixed reviews. Some manufacturers have good quality control but others do not. If you are lucky, you might get a great instrument but you could also get a very poor one. Whether you buy, U.S., Japan, Chinese, or other, I always recommend trying an instrument before buying. Play it, inspect it, feel it. If it gives problems right out the box, set it aside and move on to another one.
