sanxian

Sanxian is a Chinese long-necked three-string fretless plucked lute, with both sides mounted with snakeskin of the resonator. It is believed to have evolved from an ancient small hand drum in the Qin Dynasty, called xiaotao. It was spread to Japan and called shamisen. It is prominent in Chinese regional operas, narrative music, and ensemble music.

三弦

三弦,為中國彈撥樂器,三條絃線長柄無品位,共鳴箱兩面蒙上蛇皮,琴杆貫穿共鳴箱。不少學者指出三弦起源與弦鼗有關,它後來東傳至日本,名「三味線」。三弦被廣泛應用於中國傳統地方音樂中,如說唱(蘇州彈詞、北方曲藝)、戲曲伴奏(崑曲)、器樂合奏(江南絲竹、粵樂、潮樂)等。
