Zithers are a broad family of hollow-bodied string instruments common throughout all of Europe and Asia.
Variants range from the dulcimer to the Koto, with countless other ﬂavors unique to each region and culture. Common to each of them is the arrangement of multiple strings over a neck-less soundbox.
The oldest known variant of the zither family dates back to 4th century B.C China.
Our particular hand-held zither has a smooth, dark tone, with a clean biting attack and long, natural decay.
At it’s softest, it has a pristine, almost harp-like sound, while the hardest notes bend deeply at the attack, with a pronounced twang.
We chose a pluck articulation and captured it very close and dry, in wide stereo.
