Custom Signature Hammers

Custom Mark Alan Wade Hammers by Jill Weimer

Jill Weimer is known throughout the dulcimer world for her expert craftsmanship and artistic excellence in dulcimer hammer making. Her "Mark Alan Wade Custom Hammers" feature a unique balance for playability, and an improved overall sound. Built according to Mark's specifications, each hammer's striking surface is made from maple for its preferred sound. Mark's initials in the hammer heads are not just there for his trademark; they disperse energy of the strikes evenly across the hammer head, instead of the traditional single hole. This prevents the hammers from buzzing in your hands and adds to the overall tone. The suede leather sides offer a pleasing darker tone with clarity of articulations.


Each hammer is built to order; please allow 10 business days to ship.
