bianzhong bianzhong,

It is hard to imag­ine that thou­sands of

or chime bells, the ex­quis­ite an­cient mu­si­cal in­stru­ment, were cast in such a shabby nook in Wuhan, Hubei prov­ince. Step­ping into the di­lap­i­dated work­shop, Liu You­nian, the well-known

tuner at the Wuhan Me­chan­i­cal Tech­nol­ogy In­sti­tute, said he has seen too many vis­i­tors and cus­tomers ex­press sur­prise when they see the fac­tory. The work­shop is so small that em­ploy­ees have to eat lunch stand­ing up, and the odor is over­pow­er­ing.
