A dulcimer was a stringed instrument known in the Realms.[1] The Zakharan version was known as a santur.[2]


The dulcimer had strings stretched over a sounding board which was typically trapezoidal in shape. The strings may be plucked or struck with a hammer. The santur was similar in appearance to the qanun.[2]

A dulcimer typically cost 25 gp and weighed 10 lb (4.5 kg).[3]
