Hammered Dulcimer

When was the first keyboard invented?

I need to know this for some info im putting together about keyboard (piano) history.

The pianos that we know today started as a hammered dulcimers. Basically a small piano without keys so that you had to strike the strings manually using sticks or hammers.

The clavichord and harpsichord were early piano fore bearers and were prevalent by the middle of the 17th century (1650's or so). The piano evolved from there.

The first analog "synthesizer" was invented in 1876 by Elisha Gray. They weren't really commonly used until Bob Moog's synths were used on pop and even some classical albums in the mid to late 1960's.
