hammer dulcimer

Those things are cool as hell. They had something to do with the invention of the piano too. The ones I have seen look rather like a very large zither (sort of an autoharp without the key bars)instead of the teardrop or hourglass shape of dowel played, fretted "mountain" dulcimers...and you play it with these little round headed mallets like a xylophon...though the classical ones are played with this thing that looks like a violin bow with a piano hammer at the end. Reg has a little solo in the middle of "Caterwaul" on one:-)
