/>Tim Manning Cimbalom Maker - Dulcimer Maker
    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 the American so called Chromatic Dulcimer 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.
