Dulcimer



dulcimer There are two types of dulcimer. The mountain dulcimer is a shaped wooden instrument with strings stretched along the center which is played by plucking and strumming the strings.

The Hammered Dulcimer (pictured below) has the strings stretched across a board which is played using sticks headed with leather and felt, or plucked with the fingers.

Its origins are somewhat obscure although it is thought to be of the Zither family, it was a popular instrument in medieval Britain and was also known as the 'Pantaleon'.

The hammered dulcimer is relatively easy to play with many musicians learning by ear from more experienced players.
