Appalachian or Mountain Dulcimer is a wooden "zither" fretted string instrument.

Edd Presnell: Dulcimer Maker (1973) by Thomas Burton & Jack Schrader - http://www.folkstreams.net/film,220

Edd Presnell, a mountain craftsman and native of Watauga County, North Carolina, demonstrates and comments on the construction of a dulcimer. Presnell learned his craft from his father-in-law. Film includes a brief performance on a finished dulcimer by his wife, Nettie. This 16mm film is archived in the Thomas G. Burton and Jack Schrader collection in the Archives of Appalachia, East Tennessee State University.
