ORDERING AND SHIPPING DEPARTMENT CLOSED
June 22 through July 5

Blue Lion's Shipping Department (aka Janita) will be closed while Janita is teaching at Kentucky Music Week. Orders placed during this time can't be acknowledged and will not ship until after  July 5th.

In addition, Bob (who will be handling everything here at Blue Lion and at home) may not be able to return emails or voice mails promptly but he will do his best. We appreciate your patience and understanding.


— PRODUCTION UPDATE —

We have begun work on the Spring 2018 production run; Janita has been working on the inlays and Robert is preparing wood for the different parts of the instruments.  We are running about 6 weeks behind schedule but working hard to try to catch up and making progress towards that goal.

— ORDERING INFORMATION—

All slots for the Summer and Fall 2018 runs have been filled.

All slots for a Style II rosewood or koa or any models with a gloss finish and/or binding have been reserved for Winter 2019 runs, but we do have two openings left for other models.

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 you for your patience--we know it is hard to have to wait so long for your instrument.

Articles are appearing in the media concerning the illegal harvesting and use of East Indian Rosewood and other exotic hardwood species.  We buy all of our rosewood and ebony through a licensed importer and as with all of the exotic woods we use at Blue Lion, our rosewoodand ebony is CITES certified and legally imported.
