The Dulcimer (Chinese:Yang Qin洋琴，扬琴) is not a Chinese instrument, it is a European instrument. The Cimbalom (Yang Qin) came from Europe or Iran to China between 1368―1644. Yang Qin's formal name is Dulcimer(Hungarian-Cimbalom),also known as the cimbalom, cymbalon,Zymbalon, czimbalom, zimbalon. Please don't call it Yang Qin (Yang Chen).
Some people said that, it is a Chinese instrument , called Yang Qin. It's wrong,please call it Dulcimer.
Thank you very much
