When I was playing the hammer dulicimer I ran across a book on dulcimer playing called “FinallyTuned.” This gentleman has an exquisite sound.

tambalagiu says:

si crezi ca chitara e o specie de vioara fara arcus?

r3ddevill says:

tot un drac 🙂 o specie de tambal fara ciocanele…ii dau eu 2 ciocanele de pui =))

tambalagiu says:

bai si straini intelegem :P Dar nu e tambal, pentru k nu foloseste ciocanelele, e mai mult ca instrumentul turcesc ‘quanun’.

kfijatass says:

Anyone else can imagine an electric version of this thing?

Pala16123z0r says:

I just found my Zither in my addic yesterday. Old n’ Rusty. Had to tune all 49 strings xD But that’s nothing compared to this one tho xD

majmunko23 says:

George Hodgkiss says:

I recorded Ekim in the late ’90s in Browntown, VA. How many of you know that Ekim is Mike spelled backwards — he did not like the given name of Mike ……Sooo……

ahtram12345 says:

how do you play this instrument?
and how do you know where are the notes is

OfficialChannelOfHi says:

I want to commit suicide just thinking about tuning that thing. XD

Stephen Ryan says:

i think if this was mainstream, it would lose its awesomeness, and i dont want to have to not like this. lol

nancywarren says:

If Ekim comes to Tucson, let me know! I’d like to see him live.

azahnd82 says:

It’s shit like this that should be mainstream. Not dumb ass stuff like 50 cent or Brittany Spears.

overgroundpropaganda says:

wow unbelievable

Esko Mäkinen says:

Täähän on kantele, perkele!

Sarp Utku Topçam says:

its an Turkish instrument called Kanun

DGrieux says:

If I’d be Liszt, I’d make a piano transcription of Ekim Beau’s song in an instant.

Dave Smith says:

I saw Ekim Beau 20+ years ago in Arizona, WOW!!!

amywamie says:

beautiful. I like to make sounds using clippits of lots of different instrumetns and clips from footage from you tube like this but would love to be able to play instruments like this.

slayerdd5 says:

that must be a git to tune

ChemicalMikeUK says:

that was absolutely positively undeniably amazing!!! i’d give more than 5 stars but they won’t let me!!!

PiccoloNamek says:

I saw him there a few days ago, he was awesome.

jimiller5 says:

Last I heard, Ekim was busking in Helen, Georgia. He’s a great musician and the cross bow zither is an amazing instrument.

gfharper says:

Many years ago, I jammed with him in Winfield, Kansas. At that time, he had three cassets of his music. One was a Christmas album, which is one of my favorites during the holidays.

oftcharms says:

Ekim absolutely brilll on the cross-harp zither. Clean, bright, punchy, beautiful – I’ve had to listen to this over and over. I hope he has more stuff on youtube!
