Appalachian Dulcimer Sites

There are many kinds of dulcimers, but two main types are most commonly heard today — the hammer dulcimer and the Appalachian, or mountain, dulcimer. Although the instruments are different from one another in several ways, the Appalachian dulcimer is often confused with the European hammer dulcimer.
