This instrument was displayed at the Paris exhibition of 1867 and bought by this museum shortly afterwards.";

  • Martin Zither. Zither US ( "This zither photo was sent to us by Dick Boak of the Martin Guitar Company. The concert zither, shown below, was made by C.F. Martin, Jr., circa 1882 and is currently on display in the Martin Museum.", "Martin Zither (ca. 1880-1882) - Upon request, C. F. Martin, Jr. made a few zithers for Professor Louis Brachet, of Philadelphia. These were nearly identical to their European counterparts and followed the Salzburg form.
