Got the Jiggles?
Sadly, this hammer had the jiggles. Because it was loose (pinning) it would bounce around as if it wanted to say hi to its neighbors. They however stayed their course and did not want to say hi back. This poor hammer strayed from its course, making an awful thumping sound as it hit the left of the three strings. Oddly, it made a beautiful sound up to nearly forte and softer, but definitely NOT at fortissimo. After re-pinning or “rehabilitation”, we are back on course!
