|UK's No 1 Hammer Dulcimer Maker||Tim Manning|
30 course model Cimbalom made in the UK by top maker Tim Manning using European species timber
The Cimbalom is a chromatic instrument and is worth considering instead of a chromatic Dulcimer. Dulcimers were never chromatic in the past anyway so a chromatic Dulcimers is a hybrid instrument.
The instrument has 8 pairs of copper wound bass strings forming part of the lower register. The traditional cimbalom tuning layout has been employed with a slight modification. The instrument has 3 main bridges and three smaller bridges.
The Cymbalom sound hole design of 6 holes in a circular orbit around the central hole.
A Concert Grand Cimbalom repair.
A view of the whole instrument on a scissors stand.
Cimbaloms have holding down bridges as well as holding up bridges.
