Have him try 2 pieces of 2" black steel pipe about 2' long together. Easier to transport than an anvil.

Common decency is as rare as common sense. I figure there was only a finite amount of both made and its getting shared out among too many folks.

I believe he already has the anvil.

Then try a piece of pipe as a striker.

How about a common ball peen hammer, they are made to strike metal.     A carpenters hammer may chip as it is not made to hit harder metals other than nails.  Don't think an anvil will chip.  Roly

I wondered about a ball peen.  I think to get the biggest sound, he'd need one that's fairly large?  I'll look for one of those.

I also wonder about the 2-pound sledge I have.  Is that hard enough or is it also brittle?  I know I've hit metal with it.

Interesting thing is that percussionists want a certain tone with their "instruments", whatever they are.  Even the non-tuned drums are tuned in a big orchestra - crazy as that sounds.  You can tighten the skins on 'em to change their tone.

I'll look into that, too.  A big piece might give a more interesting sound.   Yes

I think this high school still has a shop in it.  They might have the pipe sitting around which will eliminate costs, too.

That is probably a single jack.  Perhaps a bit on the light side if it is indeed only 2 lbs, but probably intended for pretty much the same job.

Use a hammer and an anvil; and when I nod my head you hit. Dodgy
