Do you have an item of historical interest to share with the zither community? Did you have an ancestor that played the zither? This is the place to share your stories.

For those of you who might have missed this blog. I link to an interesting bit of zither and Schwarzer history:

Although I don't quite agree the zither was never "popular" (judging by surviving relics, I would put it right after guitar and mandolin among fretted instruments 1890-1910), the star did set rather rapidly in the US. Glad it is rising again.
