A pair of my dulcimers in Black Walnut and cherry.

An Appalachian or mountain dulcimer is a small, 3 or 4 stringed instrument usually played on a lap. It is related to the German Scheitholt in the Zither family. No records exist of the dulcimer before about 1880 and is an Appalachian invention. The frets of the dulcimer are arranged in the diatonic scale which, combined with only 3 or 4 strings, makes it among the easiest of all stringed instruments of play.
