The Pipa is a four-stringed Chinese musical instrument which has a pear-shaped wooden body with a varying number of frets ranging from 12-26, belonging to the plucked category of instruments. The Pipa is able to express a wide range of emotions. It can be bright and harsh when you need to portray battles or great tension. The Pipa can also melt your heart with its warm expressive tones on sad songs or love ballads. Liang's Pipa gives you more than 10 expression controls, allowing a wide range of expression.

The Pipa, also known as the Chinese lute, is one of the most popular Chinese instruments and has been played for almost two thousand years.
