Other types of zithers

Post by DanSymonds » Mon Jul 20, 2015 12:22 pm

I am wondering whether anyone might be able to point me towards a source to learn about other types of zithers. I am interested in learning the scale (string) length (nut to bridge) and the tuning and pitch for the bass zither and the quint zither. Is the alte zither another name for the concert zither (ie, "alpine zither")? I gather the harfenzither is simply the concert zither with an extended bass off the soundboard and a perhaps a slightly longer string length. Is there an ultzither? I am basically interested in any of these variants and any help will be much appreciated. Thanks Dan
