Whamdiddle Bones are handcrafted from domestic and exotic hardwoods by Rick Fogel, a master luthier with a graduate degree in nuclear physics. They bridge the gap between "Flat" and Minstrel Style bones. The winning combination of top-grade material, brilliant artistry, and scientific expertise explains why Whamdiddle Bones sound just as good as they look.
Hand-made, easily played...since 1983. My favorite Shooting Star bones are the Wide style. If you prefer the Irish (aka European two-finger) style of playing as I do, then you will love them too because they produce a remarkable tonal range. The Narrow style delivers a remarkable tonal range for their size and are perfect for kids, people with small hands, and anyone who enjoys the traditional American (aka minstrel one-finger) style of playing.
