  • 1.  Lacquer or no?

    In light of the recent conversation about the different voicing methods between lacquered hammers and non-lacquered hammers, I have a question, but thought it would be better to start a new thread. 

    Why do lacquered hammers require lacquer in the first place?

    And, why do some techs claim lacquered hammers are superior to non-lacquered hammers? (Assume that the quality control is the same in each manufacturing process.)

    You may be interested in a discussion from the past. It was called Lacquer Voicing, and was started by Fred Sturm 03-15-2013.
    Very in-depth discussion and many shared their methods in detail.
