Loan Instruments – Try before you buy

If you want to try one of my Hammered Dulcimers, you can hire one for £100 deposit and a hire charge of £100 for a two month period. At the end of 2 months you can return it and I will refund your £100 deposit, subject to safe return. If you wish to purchase one I will put the £200 you have paid towards your new dulcimer. I currently do not have any instruments available under this scheme, However please check with me if you are interested..

Hammers – select at home

While we are not able to get out and about to the festivals and weekend workshops you don’t have to struggle with the same old hammers.  Please contact me about a “select at home” service for hammers.  I will send you five pairs of hammers for you to try out, you just pay for what you keep and the return postage.  They are handmade by me, so will vary from the photograph below as I tend to make of 2 or 3 sets at the same then move on to different woods and designs.
