DIY project always a good challenge.
Putting them together the hardest thing was waiting for the glue to dry.
I painted mine and then rounded handles with a drum sander bit on a dremel
Light weight good balance . I really like them painted the features on the head of the hammer really popped out I will make the second pair when I can think of ways to improve on the first pair
I bought put together hammer dulcimer hammers and I felt the leather for the business end was Exactly the length required but since it was folded in the package at a location that did not line up exactly where the leather had to be cut it made putting it together very tedious. The strings worked fine but I needed to improvise the ped end of the strings
I am very happy with this kit so far. Everything is lazer cut and fits very well together. I can not wait to string up the dulcimer I am building to try these hammers out. they are a very good value for everything you get.
I was really impressed with the quality of my items and the speed that my order was filled in this time of uncertainty. Thank You!
This kit is awesome. The hammers are easily customized and with a little crafting (assembly) fun, you will have a $40 to $50 pair of customized hammers for only $8.00! They are lightweight to start with which I prefer, but can easily be made heavier due to your customizing. Get them, you will love the results. Thanks Folkcraft for delivering such value to a very niche market of HD players, we appreciate it more than you know.
