'아쟁.' Ajeang.


아쟁(牙箏)은 소리를 내는 한국 현악기의 하나로 국악기 중 가장 음역이 낮다. 본래 중국의 악기여서 처음에는 당악(唐樂)에만 사용되었다. 정악 아쟁에는 10개의 줄이, 산조 아쟁에는 7개의 줄이 있고, 막대나 활로 켜서 소리를 낸다. 활대는 개나리나무의 껍질을 벗겨 송진을 묻혀 만든다. 약간 거칠고 투박한 듯하면서도 장엄한 소리를 낸다.



The ajaeng is a Korean string instrument. It is a wide zither with strings made of twisted silk, played by means of a slender stick made of forsythia wood, which is scraped against the strings in the manner of a bow. The original version of the instrument, and that used in court music (called the jeongak ajaeng), has seven strings, while the ajaeng used for sanjo and sinawi (called the sanjo ajaeng) has eight strings; some instruments may have up to nine strings.

The ajaeng is generally played while seated on the floor. It has a deep tone similar to that of a cello, but more raspy. Some contemporary players prefer to use an actual horsehair bow rather than a stick, believing the sound to be smoother. The instrument is used in court, aristocratic, and folk music, as well as in contemporary classical music and film scores.

The ajaeng is derived from the Chinese yazheng (simplified: 轧筝; traditional: 軋箏).
