Real silk strings for guqin by Lawrence Kaster

Silk strings for guqin, sold directly by the silk string maker, Mr. Lawrence Kaster, available for purchase at his Etsy online store

According to Mr Kaster (posted in Facebook on the Guqin forum), "I am the only Silk string maker who welcomes Custom orders. I can do this because I work in small batches and have enough experience to suggest options for many other instruments."

(Disclaimer: I have no affiliation with Mr. Lawrence Kaster or his online store. Neither have I purchased or used his silk strings.)


  1. Hi!
    I tried to find your email but couldn't, so I will leave you a message here. I am a guqin beginner looking for my first instrument. Just wanted to ask, do you by any change have a old one you are looking to sell ;)? Maybe you can contact me through my profile or email at matias.ikkala (at) gmail (dot) com

  2. Hello! I chanced upon your page while looking for guqin classes in Singapore. Would you know any places that conduct lessons for children? My 9-year-old daughter is very keen to learn. I am however finding it almost impossible to find a teacher here. If you could recommend someone, please send me an email at I would be so grateful. Thank you!
