Hammers For SaleStands for Sale

Hammers are the player's connection to the dulcimer and hence the music. Their role in performance is paramount. They are made with a functional design, hickory shaft, decorative woods on the handle, smooth shape to feel comfortable, well balanced, and they have wood, felt and/or leather on the tips. The standard length for hammers is 6.5 inches from the middle of the handle to the middle of the striking spot, though custom orders are filled at no extra cost since I make all my hammers individually. Innovative hammers can add a new sound and lift to your performances. Give your audience something to talk about – “What was that!?”

These hammers are examples only. When ordering, please specify rounded or flat handle; wood, felt and/or leather on the playing tip; and if you would like a pick set into the handle end ($6). Shipping is included for hammers.

Stands For SaleHammers for Sale

After many years of experimenting with different stands, I now build what I consider to be the perfect dulcimer stand. This simple and clean design is elegant, lightweight, extremely compact and portable, and practically indestructible when folded. The stand forms a stable tripod when opened which receives any size dulcimer. The stand is capable of angle and height adjustments.

Custom fitted stands are available for an extra $15. Please specify your height and/or requirements.
