Hammered Dulcimer Playing Hammers
Price for all hammers is $30 a set regardless of the style. Please specify wood and Model #. Shipping is $3
Model H1 ( I have some slightly different hammers based on the H1 here)

This is my most popular double sided set of playing hammers; hard surface on one side, leather covered surface on the other. The H1 is most suitable for instruments with 7/8" string spacing but can be used on other string spacings as well. I use a variety of woods for the handles. The shaft and heads can be walnut, cherry or maple. Maple is heaviest, cherry next with walnut being the lightest weight. (see photos below). Please specify your preference when ordering.

All hammers are about 8 1/2" long with a handle that is 1/2" wide. I can make them shorter or longer on special order.

Model H2
The H2 double sided hammers have the same grip but have a head that is a flatter shape for those of you who want more hitting surface. These are more suitable for instruments with 1" string spacing. Available in (from top to bottom) walnut, cherry, and maple.

Walnut
Cherry
Maple
Model L1
This is Lucille Reilly's recommended single sided hammers. Notice the thicker grip. They are available in walnut, cherry, and maple. Leather can be added

Model L2
This hammer is very much like Lucille's but the grip is thinner.

Jim Bows $45 a set plus $3 shipping. Includes rosin.

Held between thumb and middle finger in center of bow handle; your thumb will become a pivot point. Index and ring finger fit naturally in curves of the bow handle. Place the bow on the string course you want to play and pivot the handle up or down to create the bowing sound. You will have one in each hand You rosin the 'bow' just like you would a violin bow. I found it works with difficulty on tight string spacing 7/8" or tighter. Better on wider string spacings. The outside diameter of a standard Jim Bow is 4 3/4 inches.
