Harp: The harp is a stringed musical instrument that has a
number of individual strings running at an angle to its
soundboard; the strings are plucked with the fingers. Harps
have been known since antiquity in Asia, Africa and Europe,
dating back at least as early as 3500 BCE.
- The pedal harp (also known as the concert harp) is a large
and technically modern harp, designed primarily for
classical music and played either solo, as part of a chamber
ensemble, or in an orchestra.
- Celtic harp: The Celtic harp is a triangular harp
traditional to Brittany, Ireland, Scotland and Wales. It is
known as a telenn in Breton, cláirseach in Irish, clàrsach
in Scottish Gaelic and telyn in Welsh. In Ireland and
Scotland, it was a wire-strung instrument requiring great
skill and long practice to play, and was associated with the
Gaelic ruling class. It appears on the coins and coat of
arms of the Republic of Ireland.
Dulcimer: A dulcimer is a type of musical string instrument.
It is a species of zither. Among its forms are:
- 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 continental Europe. Most countries have their
own name for the instrument, for instance in Thailand it is
called a khim, in India it is called Santoor 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
- Appalachian dulcimer, a folk instrument used in the
Appalachian region of the U.S.
- Banjo dulcimer, with banjo-like resonating membrane
- Resonator dulcimer, with inset conical resonator
- Bowed dulcimer, teardrop-shaped and played upright with a
- Electric dulcimer, various types of dulcimer which use a
