Best Place to Find a Zither 

The Folk Shop

Staff Pick

The Folk Shop has a tremendous collection of musical instruments that is far afield of the standard fare. A short list to give you some idea of the breadth of their offerings: hammer dulcimers, dobros, ouds, charangos, guitarrons, bagpipes, djembes, limberjacks, and of course, that simple but effective rhythm unit, the zither (think of that scratchy noise on War's "Spill the Wine"). Amazingly, the preceding list represents a tiny fraction of the embarrassment of riches to be found at the Folk Shop, which also stocks sheet music, instrument cases and all manner of accessories. Even if you're a non-musician, it's a fascinating browse, and a great place to shop for gifts for musician friends.
