Played in British Isles and North America. Closely related to the Hungarian cymbalom, German/Swiss hackbrett, Iraqi and Iranian santir (probably the origin of all of these), Indian santoor, Korean yangum and Chinese yang qin.

Recorders originated in the renaissance period, when instruments were made with a cylindrical bore, but those mostly used today are baroque designs with a conical bore. Our recorders are stocked in English (baroque) fingering.
