To all our friends and customers: we have received many email inquiries as to the threat of the California wildfires that have beset our state. We are relieved to report that we are not close to either the northern or southern California conflagrations.
Thank you all for your concern and kind thoughts; it is an ever-present danger for those of us who live in wildfire-prone areas and while we had a very close call in June, we have been lucky in the past 40 years to have escaped the ravages of fire. There is no way to thank you all for your concern and for taking the time to check in on us.
IMPORTANT ORDERING INFORMATION
— PRODUCTION UPDATE —
October has arrived and we have just begun work on the fall production run of dulcimers. At this point it's way too early to estimate when the run will be finished but we are hoping to have them ready to go before the end of the year.
As of 10/11/17, all slots in the fall run have been filled. For both the winter and spring production schedule, all slots for rosewoods and any models with binding have been filled; spaces are still available for any other orders.
For those of you who are considering ordering a dulcimer you can place the order any time; we don't charge the deposit until we actually begin work on the dulcimer but it secures your place in the production run.
We want to thank all of our current and potential customers for their patience; having a "wait list" is both a blessing and a curse for all of us!!

We buy all of our rosewood through a licensed importer; and as with all of the exotic woods we use at Blue Lion, our rosewood is CITES certified and legally imported.
