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. 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.

Good basic hammers, easily assembled

Received two pair of hammers in the kit, already cut and rough shaped. Assembly was easy, using a bit of wood glue to attach the handles. I didn't care for the blackened edges where it had been cut with a laser, so I attached a sanding disk to my Dremel, and sanded everything and shaped the handles for a more comfortable fit. Finish was simple, using a clear coating. I did find the leather strip was quite long enough to cover all four hammers - the fourth was about 1/4"-3/8" shy.
I will say these hammers are light, about half the weight of my other hammers. I'm experimenting with wrapping silver wire around the handle down close to the head to increase the weight and action of the hammers; I should be able to find a nice balance. Overall though, a great way to get some backup or alternate hammers for your dulcimer!

Cardboard Dulicumer

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.

Best path to your own custom hammered dulcimer hammers

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
