Hi, is the Biang Zhong in its original tuning or have you retuned the samples to fit the standard western scale? Or are both available I guess?

thanks, woggle

Sorry about the very late reply. I think I answered a email quite a few months ago, was that you?

The bells were supposed to be in tune with modern scale, but due to the inadequacy of the craftsman tech as well as some other issues, they are not really 100% in tune. We did fine-tuned the samples so they can be used with other modern instruments. Just one scale version available.
