American Heritage® Dictionary of the English Language, Fourth Edition
- A trademark used for a musical instrument similar to a zither.
Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
- n. A musical instrument of the zither class, having across the strings several bars provided with projecting dampers so arranged that when one of the bars is pressed down all strings are damped or rendered mute except those of some particular chord. By supplying such bars for a number of chords usually required in simple accompaniments, the instrument is made usable for convenient arpeggio effects with but little technical knowledge or skill on the part of the player.
GNU Webster's 1913
- n. A zitherlike musical instrument, provided with dampers which, when depressed, deaden some strings, leaving free others that form a chord.
