How to use erhu wax

How to use

Before playing the erhu, take an appropriate amount directly on your fingertips and rub it over the strings to make them glide smoothly. Also, if you apply some rosin to the strings when they feel sticky and difficult to play, it will make position changes, portamento (smooth sounds), vibrato (trembling sounds), and other expressions smoother.

●Natural materials that are safe to touch directly with your hands

It is made from 100% domestically produced unbleached beeswax and organically certified crude jojoba oil, which is also used in high-end massage oils.

The recipe is derived from hand cream and contains no preservatives or additives, making this beeswax wax safe to touch with bare hands.

Also useful for reducing the burden of playing

● To support performance

If your fingers hurt due to friction with the strings, it is possible to reduce the pain.

The wax that you apply to your fingertips before playing the strings creates a layer of lubricant that protects the strings and prevents rust from forming.

If you take care of it by wiping it with a cleaning cloth after playing, it will last even longer.

●Precautions for use

- Do not apply to any area other than the strings.

- Please be especially careful not to let it get on the bow hair of your erhu bow.

If the strings are dirty with rosin, the effect may not be achieved. Please try again after replacing the strings with new ones.

About Nekodamari Kobo

Nekodamari Kobo was born in December 2020 when the company began selling its homemade clear beeswax in musical instrument stores. Based on the brand concept of "items that support harmony," in just one year, the company's products were sold in over 200 stores, and 20,000 units were manufactured, shipped, and exported overseas. Through a strange coincidence, the company inherited the machines that have been making Japanese guitar pickups for over 50 years, and expanded from "items that do not make sound" to "items related to sound that create music." Therefore, the company has established a new brand concept related to sound, "Playing the sound of the heart together," and is developing and manufacturing a variety of products.
