DULCIMER HAMMERS -handmade by Wesley Thompson:
Linda maintains that the best set of fine-motor muscles in your body is in the circle formed when you lightly touch your thumb and forefinger together. Therefore, that’s how she holds the hammers. We’ve seen 2 dulcimists with decent tone quality who hold hammers some other way, but most who don’t, don’t. These hammers are designed to give the best hammer control possible, which leads to the best available tone quality. 8” long, they have an easy-to-grip handle, excellent balance. They’re one-sided because you can’t, really, get as discerning a handle for double-sided ones and Linda chose this option.
When we don’t have these in stock, people often ask to be put on a list and when they become available, we notify you to see whether you still want them.

HAMMERS by Joe Morgan

$35 per pair

BONES: Fine individually-made wooden bones with a special twist that makes them so much in demand. Handcrafted out of Zebra wood, Bocate, and other exotic woods by Wesley Thompson. Wesley’s ideas about how to shape the bones for maximum playing benefit came from his years of learning and playing bones. He’s really good at it. You’ll still have to do your own practicing, but a pair or two of his bones make your playing more likely to succeed. 
$20 per pair


Percy Danforth: HOW TO PLAY BONES CD & Booklet
By Sue Ellen Barber, in collaboration with Percy Danforth
Beginning bones at age 5 in 1905, Percy Danforth was one of the great American bones players. This is the set Wesley used to start teaching himself. He doesn’t play that style, but thinks it’s the best thing available that shows how the bones were played in the minstrel shows. The CD is great to learn from, but it’s fun to listen to even if you’re not into playing bones.

This package makes a GREAT gift for the tagalong friend or significant other who gets bored watching you play. BUT, don’t let him/her join the jam session til the beat’s REALLY firm and strong!
Package which includes Percy Danforth: HOW TO PLAY BONES Book/Tape Combination and pair of bones made by Wesley Thompson from fine, exotic woods
