Cimbaloms are Eastern European instruments dulcimer family instruments. They tend to fall into several catagories not least is that between the folk instruments, which are smaller and often damped by felt or similar entwined in the strings, and Grand Cimbaloms which are larger needing two or 3 people to carry them comfortably.
