Did You Know?
The Cimbalom (hammered dulcimer) is a Hungarian folk instrument played primarily with beaters.
It is equipped with a heavy frame for more dynamic power, with many added string courses resulting in an extended range of sound and also a damper pedal to allow more dynamic control.
During the 19th century the cimbalom was considered as the most distinguished musical instrument in Hungary, aristocratic families had their children taught to play the cimbalom instead of the piano.
The first Cimbalom School was opened in 1890. Henceforth plays of the era remained including the cimbalom as a primary instrument in many of them, making it unique and exclusively Hungarian.
