I don't know if that suits your needs, but googling 'marxophone' quickly led me here (Marxophone for Kontakt).

Don't forget to TURN ON THE SYNTHESIZER. Often this is the reason why you get no sound out of it. - ARP 2600 manual, 1971

The sound of the Marxophone is reminiscent of the various types of hammered dulcimer in music traditions world-wide. It has four sets of chord strings to be strummed with the left hand and two octaves of double melody strings, which are struck by metal hammers activated by the right hand.

An example of a Marxophone on a well-known recording can be heard on "Alabama Song" by The Doors. Real Marxophones show up on eBay quite often.
