In its broadest sense, a zither is a plucked stringed instrument with a sounding board and strings that do not extend beyond it. East Asian zithers include:

 

  • Guqin, an ancient Chinese fretless zither with seven strings, also known in Japan and Korea.
  • Seul, a Korean instrument descended from the ancient chinese se.
  • Koto, widely used in Japan.
