*** CD SALE EXTENDED***

IMPORTANT ORDERING INFORMATION
— PRODUCTION UPDATE —

As August begins, we are about midway through the summer run of dulcimers.

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.

As of 7/31/17, all slots in the fall run have been filled.  The winter run has no openings left for a rosewood dulcimer order; there are still several slots available for other models.

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!!


BLUE LION GIFT CERTIFICATE

If you are shopping for a gift we're now happy to offer you the option of a gift certificate. You can fill it in for a dulcimer or any of our accessories, books or cd's or let the lucky recipient decide just how to spend it.

OUR WOOD SOURCES

Articles are appearing in the media concerning the illegal harvesting and use of East Indian Rosewood and othe exotic hardwood species.  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. 


ONLINE SALES

We are now offering online sales for books, recordings and small accessories through PayPal. Please note that you do NOT need a PayPal account to place an order; you can use your VISA, MasterCard or Discover credit card as well.

Instruments are not available for sale online (you must contact us by email or phone to place an order for a dulcimer or guitar).

 Information about ordering online is included at the top of the Books & Recordings and the Accessories pages.  If you have any questions (or problems) please contact us via email.  Happy shopping!

The Eclipse



(click on the photo for a larger image)

With all the hubub about the pending solar eclipse over the U.S. August 21st, we wanted to share with you a photo from an annular solar eclipse that occured here in May 2012.  A great way to view an eclipse is through the "pinhole lens" effect created by leafy shade; if you don't have a good wall or light colored surface a piece of white posterboard works well. All those little crescents are the shadow cast by the moon blocking the sun.

(P.S.  Remember--if you're lucky enough to be in the path of the eclipse, never look directly at the sun without protective eye gear.)
