They were easy to put togeather, I also had Folkcraft put the togeather the fret board which was a great help. They sound great and work well for some one who want to try and get start with learning. I have a program for beginner Dulicumer’s, and now they have 2 dulicumer for the program.
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!
