The instrument I am holding in my avatar is a replica of a Pennsylvania German zither (zitter), often mistakenly called a scheitholt), which I made. It is based on an instrument in the Mercer Museum in Doylestown, PA. Many scholars believe that this type of instrument is the fore runner of the Appalachian or mountain dulcimer. It has five strings, two of which pass over the staple frets. The other three are drones. I am glad you like it. I made it out of scraps of walnut I had laying around my shop.

Hi Blackhawk, and welcome to the wonderful world of the Friends of the Mountain Dulcimer.  It's a good place to come, spend some time, learn about the dulcimer, and to meet some good people.
