Different forms of Hackbrett
Browsing through Wikipedia's page on the Hackbrett I was interested to read that various regions actually have their own form of this instrument!:
diatonisch been correct, with quinten and Bass-Steg.
An important role plays in the dance music particularly as rhythm and harmony instrument. The Qintensteg divides the strings strained over it in the relationship 2 to 3.
On the same string thus the Hackbrett of Virdung, illustrated above, rings out shows already 1511 this structure on the right of for instance a C, on the left of a G. Similarly developed also the Walliser is Hackbrett (Switzerland)
Slovenian Hackbrett: similarly the Steiri Hackbrett developed.
Osttiroler Hackbrett: diatonisch been correct, however higher and larger Korpus, heavier Stahlsaiten than the Steiri Hackbrett.
Equipped with small, additional bars („fast “, „pedals “or guidance clay/tone hinges mentioned), one can tune a string choir rapidly with the hand by Verkürzung around a half clay/tone more highly.
Appenzeller Hackbrett (Switzerland):
With the Appenzeller Hackbrett the strings are partly partly divided and altogether chromatically arranged to the half by a bar in Quinten and in sixths.
chromatically been correct.
For the alpine people music of the Salzburger (seen after report Reiser approx. 1920 with a steirischen wood worker) and 1927 develop people musi edges Tobi Reiser and instrument farmer the Heinrich Bandzauner again after the model of a Osttiroler of Hackbretts (38 kilograms heavily, which strengthens Korpus with steel-pipes) converted: instead of diatonischer chromatic tendency, instead of which Holzschlegel with felt blank occupied.
It finds use as the quieter instrument particularly in the so-called „room music “.

Now I know that the Co Antrim Dulcimer appears very different, both in design & string pattern, so I wonder is there any evidence for regional variations of the Hammered Dulcimer in England or Scotland?
Here's one of the standard Co Antrim Hammered Dulcimers.
This one is owned & still played, by William Rea, a Glens of Antrim man & relative of the late, great John Rea!:
