Folkcraft® Hammered Dulcimer Hammers Kit

Item Number 7091661

Sale price $15.00 Regular price $16.00

Our easy-to-assemble kit for making your own hammered dulcimer hammers will save you a ton of money, and only take an afternoon to assemble. We've taken 1/8” thick blanks of Honduras mahogany, laser-cut them to size/shape, and we're leaving the assembly (a spot of glue) and sanding (start with 120 grit sandpaper, finish with 220 grit paper) to you. In our hammered dulcimer kits for sale, your hammers are sanded to your satisfaction (Honduras mahogany is very soft, and will sand very, very easily!). Afterwards, you can add a finish (we would recommend a polyurethane, or a Danish oil) or leave the wood bare. Cut the leather pads to length, glue them on (we would use Duco Cement) and then make some music. Our hammered dulcimer hammers kit includes four shafts, eight caps, and a piece of leather long enough for four completed hammers.

Hammer Dulcimer hammers and lap dulcimer strings

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.

best kept secret

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.
