***************************************************
 
Veronica became intrigued by the hammered dulcimer when she saw someone playing one in 1973.  She finally bought one many years later and taught herself how to play.  Veronica currently plays a Concert Grand (pictured above) by David Lindsey and a Concertmaster by Jerry Read Smith .  Each instrument has its own special qualities which makes the dulcimers sound very different from each other. 

***************************************************

The hammered dulcimer is an ancient instrument from Persia that is known throughout the world by many names including cimbal, hackbrett, and santoorFor a detailed history check Wikipedia or the Smithsonian.

Dulcimer means "sweet song."
