  • cymbalom - Hammered dulcimer with many different names. There are actually oriental versions. Sizes range from small trapezoidal table top instruments through large self-standing concert grand Romanian/Hungarian instruments. A predecessor of the Piano Forte. The so called 'Appalachian Dulcimer' has no true relation to this one. It is one of many misnamed instruments.
