||A disambiguation page that was recently here has been replaced by the present page, in order to implement WP:DABCONCEPT and WP:PRIMARYTOPIC. This Dulcimer topic is believed to qualify as a broad-concept article which should cover the general area of related titles that were previously listed here. Unrelated titles from the disambiguation page, if any, should have been moved to Dulcimer (disambiguation). This is a draft article which can be improved by further development to broadly cover the primary topic and to complement the related articles that are linked.

- Hammered dulcimer, free-standing, most frequently but not always trapezoidal in shape, with many strings struck by handheld "hammers". This type of instrument is found in many cultures, especially in England, in the British isles and in the north of the european continent.. Most countries have their own name for the instrument, for instance in Thailand it is called a khim, and many have different tuning systems. Being a struck string instrument, it is considered to be among the ancestors of the piano.
- Fretted, three or four strings, generally played on the lap by strumming; including
"A damsel with a dulcimer
In a vision once I saw:
It was an Abyssinian maid,
And on her dulcimer she played,
Singing of Mount Abora."
