Such hammered dulcimer instruments are mostly popular and played in countries such as China, Korea, Central Europe, Germany, Romania, Slovenia, Czech Republic, Switzerland, Ukraine, and Scandinavia.

A dulcimer consists of two bridges such as a treble bridge and a bass bridge. As the name suggests, the bass strings are on the bass bridge which are played by the player. A dulcimer is made in various sizes identified by strings. The strings are often assembled in pairs and each string set is tuned in unison. With a lot of strings, the dulcimer sounds louder and heavier. While the hammered dulcimer is used to strike the strings; hammers are made of wood as well. In Asian countries, swift hammers are used instead of stiff hammers.
