 Bob playing Hammered Dulcimer

The hammered dulcimer is a stringed instrument with the strings stretched over a trapezoidal sounding board. The Graeco-Roman dulcimer (sweet song) derives from the Latin dulcis (sweet) and the Greek melos (song).


 Various types of hammered dulcimers are traditionally played in India, Iran, (called Santur) Southwest Asia, China, Central Europe, Eastern Europe (called Cymbol) and Scandinavia., The instrument is also played in the United Kingdom and the U.S., where its traditional use is in folk music.


The dulcimer Bob plays was made by Dusty Strings in Seattle and is tuned like a piano. This allows him to play any style of Western music including classical, jazz, country, rock ‘n roll, gospel and latin.
