The Piano, Harpsichord and Dulcimer

According to Alfred Dolge (Pianos and their Makers; A Comprehensive History of the Development of the Piano, 1911, Dover, 1972) the modern piano as we have come to know it is usually thought to be an historical extension of the Harpsichord, but is actually more closely related to the Dulcimer. Builders did actually try to rework the Harpsichord with hammer action, but they soon found that the Harpsichord was an illogical fit.

Dolge writes:

It seems much more reasonable to assume that the dulcimer (the German hackbrett), which was played upon with hammers held in the hands of the performer, similar to the xylophone, led to the invention of the pianoforte.
