Spaw, get the singing fish back out and you won't notice the clock.

Hammered dulcimers had more strings than autoharps I think, and they go out of tune if you look at them. Appalachian/lap dulcimers, however, may only have three strings, and there isn't that much tension on them. I think a reed instrument such as concertina or accordion is your best bet if you don't want to keep re-tuning.
