Hammer Jammer is a Gamer Changer

Slappa de…guitar? This was just called to my attention, and I am now calling it to yours. Have you ever wanted to turn your guitar into a hammered dulcimer? Because I sure as shit never have. Until now!


The Hammer Jammer (available direct from Big Walnut Productions) is a cheap ($30) device that you clamp to your axe that uses piano-like hammers to create percussive sounds and play your guitar with a totally different type of attack. For that kind of money, it’s in the same category as a capo, slide, tuner, or a cable, just another accessory to have for occasional use for certain things. Like FUN!

I’m for it. Thoughts?

As Editor-in-Chief of Gear Gods, I've been feeding your sick instrument fetishism and trying unsuccessfully to hide my own since 2013. I studied music on both coasts (Berklee and SSU) and now I'm just trying to put my degree to some use. That's a music degree, not an English one. I'm sure you noticed.
