Among Han sites (206 bce–220 ce) containing musical instruments, most significant is the tomb of Mawangdui in Hunan province, dating to the 2nd century bce. Unearthed from tombs 1 and 3 are instruments similar to the earlier finds but including (a) two 25-string se , each with four top-mounted string-holding pegs (similar to the Zenghou Yi se ) and, remarkably, with silk strings and bridges intact; (b) one seven-string qin , similar in shape to the older Zenghou Yi qin but with a longer soundboard and the now-standard seven strings; (c) one thin zhu , with positions for five strings; (d) two long yu mouth organs, one consisting of 23 pipes mounted in a wooden windchest, with many of its metal reeds intact; (e) one set of 12 bamboo pitchpipes ( yulü ), tuned chromatically within a one-octave range; and (f) two chi transverse flutes, with fingerholes on one side rather than on the top. These instruments are held by the Hunan Provincial Museum, Changsa.
