Yasheng Musical Instrument Shop is one of the oldest shops selling musicalal instrument in Beijing. It offers both modern Western and traditional Chinese models. To boot, it teaches patrons to perform their selected instruments.
A large selection is on display: percussions, and orchestral instruments. Apparently, what attracts tourists most often are small instruments which are seldom used in a regular show, such as a cute clay pig figurine. You could not imagine it can be played until the shop assistant floors you with a demo.
The shop has many of such curiosities. They look like regular pieces of art, but you can use them to charm your audience.
