Macy Jane, that's cool!

Macy, that's a beautiful sounding kantele- the tone is so resonant and lovely! And it looks so beautiful too.

Do you have ideas for what music you will be playing on it?

I bought these kantele music books to use for playing my 3 stringed jouhikko/tagelharpa:

the home site has lots of good info and links:

Jeremy, I confess that you've completely scrambled my poor brain .

A more practical way of looking at it is in how they are played, raising the strings off the soundboard allows the harpist to get a hand on either side, zithers you only get to play one side.

Looking at the wiki posted earlier it seems concert instruments use semitone levers, which is very much a harp thing.

Phil - harps have the strings coming out at right angles to the sound box, where zithers (psalteries are a type of zither) and lyres and dulcimers of both types have the strings running across the surface of the soundbox.

That's really neat!

I think the sound of that. are they related to the Harp?
