This unique tool combines a tabla hammer and a strap puller in one compact tool.
• Optimally weighted for greater striking control
• Smooth surfaces to minimize or eliminate damage while striking
• Ergonomically designed
• Works with Left and Right handed players
This tool provides the most desirable features of a solid tuning hammer with a very useful strap puller built in. Designed to be held like a tabla hammer toward the top, with a wide blunt side for tuning the drum up, and a narrow side to allow easy striking between the straps when tuning the drum down. This tool features securing thumb grooves when used as hammer, and comfortable gripping surfaces for the fingers when used as a strap puller. The pulling surface holds the strap securely in place and is designed to distribute stress over a large area to minimize strap breakage.
Hammers are hand crafted and given a beautiful patina finish by foundry artisans. No two hammers will be artistically identical! Used and cared for properly, this tool will last a lifetime.
