An odd little toy


from Fox River Grove IL

This is a hammer action plectrum for guitar, it turns your guitar in effect into a hammer dulcimer. You can use it in three ways. First, striking with the hammer head, which will strike two or three strings. You can get some interesting effects by playing with the bounce. Second, striking with the flat back, which will strike all strings (make sure your angle is parallel to the strings). This will make a simultaneous attack, a chord without strumming. Third, you can grip it near the top and use it more like a normal pick. It will be great for a percussive guitarist.

The tone it makes is bright and punchy, but might be an odd technique for a traditionalist. Great for experimenting with, and creating new sounds.

Those with disabilities, arthritis, or weak grip might consider using it as a pick they can hold with all your fingers.

It Does it All!


from Indianapolis, IN

Staff Reviewer

Here is a fun tool for those looking to expand their own personal soundscape on any stringed instrument. In one tool you can make hammer dulcimer sounds, use it as a heavy plectrum, use it as a slide, and so much more. It's a quick and easy way to widen your horizons for any instrument, but absolutely wonderful specifically for guitar!
