The hammered dulcimer is a stringed musical instrument with the strings stretched over a trapezoidal sounding board. Typically, the hammered dulcimer is set on a stand, at an angle, before the musician, who holds small mallet hammers in each hand to strike the strings (cf. Appalachian dulcimer).

The word dulcimer is Graeco-Roman, meaning "sweet song"; it derives from the Latin dulcis (sweet) and the Greek melos (song).

The dulcimer's origin is uncertain, but tradition holds it was invented in Iran (Persia) some 2000 years ago, where it is called a santur.

Various types of hammered dulcimers are traditionally played in Southwest Asia, China and parts of Southeast Asia, Central Europe (Hungary, Romania, Slovakia, Poland, Czech Republic, Austria and Bavaria) and Eastern Europe (Ukraine and Belarus). The instrument is also played in Great Britain (Wales, East Anglia, Northumbria) and has been revived in the folk music traditions of the U.S.
