Bowed dulcimer

Bowed dulcimer was known in the 19th century, and its history continues to this day,    that is a sign of great interest to this amazing instrument.                                                     This kind of hybrid Appalachian dulcimer and cello or                                                           viola da gamba, or viola, but with its own characteristic reedy timbre                                  The bowed dulcimer sounds like a cello or a viola.

This instrument, I built at the end of 2014, it corresponds to
¾ cello, has four strings and cello tuning – C, G, d, a.
Instrument is equipped with a high quality sensor pickup.
