qin (long zithers) (long zithers, <zitherlike chordophones: plucked>, ... Furnishings and Equipment (hierarchy name))

 

Note: Chinese long zithers of great antiquity, consisting of a slightly convex, shallow, lacquered box over the length of which are stretched seven silk strings of equal length, each twisted from a different, fixed number of threads. Thirteen discs of ivory or mother-of-pearl are inlaid along one edge to indicate the string divisions. They are traditionally the most honored of Chinese musical instruments, having strong associations with court and Confucian ritual, philosophy, and scholarship.

Additional Notes:
Chinese (traditional) ..... 極其古老的中國琴瑟,其形為一稍凸、淺薄的亮面盒子,由7根長度相等的撥弦繫於其上,而每條弦纏繞於不同的弦鈕上。13片盤狀的象牙或珠母貝鑲嵌於琴的邊緣以分辨琴碼。琴瑟在傳統上是備受尊崇的中國樂器,與宮廷及儒禮、心理學及學術常有關聯。 
Dutch ..... Lange citers bestaande uit een licht gebolde, ondiepe, gelakte klankkast waarover in de lengte zeven zijden snaren van gelijke lengte zijn gespannen, ieder getwijnd van een verschillend, vast aantal draden. Dertien schijfjes van ivoor of parelmoer zijn langs één zijkant ingelegd om de snaarverdelingen aan te geven. Ze zijn van oudsher het meest in aanzien staande Chinese muziekinstrument dat sterk verbonden is met het hof en met Confusiaanse rituelen, filosofie en wetenschap. 
Spanish ..... Cítaras largas chinas muy antigüas que consisten en una caja lacada poco profunda, ligeramente convexa sobre la cual están tendidas a lo largo siete cuerdas de seda de igual longitud, cada una retorcida con un número diferente y fijo de hebras. Trece discos de marfil o madreperla se han incrustado a lo largo de un borde para indicar las divisiones de las cuerdas. Son tradicionalmente los instrumentos musicales chinos más honorables, al estar muy asociados a la corte y a los rituales, la filosofía y la erudición confucianas.
