Hammered Dulcimer

 

The hammered dulcimer is a stringed musical instrument with the strings stretched over a trapazodial sounding board. Typically, the hammered dulcimer is set on a stand, at an angle, before the musician, who holds small wooden hammers in each hand to strike the strings

Dulcimers have many names in many lands: dulcymore, salterio, tsimbal, santour,  yang chin, hackbrett, and cymbalom. Dulcimer means ‘sweet sound’.

Pictured is my Dusty Strings D-600 Hammered Dulcimer. It is equipped with legs, dampeners, and pick-ups by Shatten Design.
