This hulusi is made of gourd and bamboo, so it sounds like original Yunnan hulusi. Sounds really authentic. Sounds delicious. Sounds great. Two switchable drones. Tuned well (but there is a con, see below). Comes with protective case, so it will probably not break easily even if you throw it. Comes with great looking knot. Cheap.
All notes are tuned a bit sharp, probably 10-15 cents higher, so it will be impossible to play in band, only solo (or with drums). Not detachable. Glued with some cheap glue - it smells not good (if it safe for your health?). Protective case smells bad. Instructions come in chinese, so you have to google for fngering chart. Have to blow hard with two drones playing. Picture at gourd surface cut with some laser printer - looks pixelated.
Great authentic instrument - will definitely entertain any musician. If you have played tinwhistle, recorder, etc you will be able to play easily, but remember to blow quite hard. You have to overblow reeds inside gourd to be able to play central (melodic) tube. Blow even harder to play with drones. You can even play with circular breathing (google for it if you don't know what is it)
If you want cool looking and sounding instrument - just buy this hulusi.
