Folkcraft Hammered Dulcimer Hammers Kit

Item number 7091661, 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. After your hammers are sanded to your satisfaction (Honduras mahogany is very soft, and will sand very, very easily!), you an 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 kit includes four shafts, eight caps, and a piece of leather long enough for four completed hammers.
