IMPORTANT ORDERING INFORMATION
— PRODUCTION UPDATE —

As July begins, we are starting the summer run of dulcimers. Due to the wildfire we were delayed a week or so in getting the last few instruments shipped out (the roads were closed) but we're back on track now.

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 7/17/17, all the slots for a IIR rosewood dulcimer (or other woods with binding or gloss finish) in the fall run have been filled; we do have a few spaces available for other models.


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; you don't need to have a PayPal account to order.  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!

Hill Fire



(click on the photo for a larger image)

The week of June 24th was a bit stressful as you can see from the above photo. We had a close call with a wildfire--it was burning on two sides of our property but fortunately the wind pushed it away from us. The power was out for three days which kept Robert busy with the little generator running the well pump and the refrigerator, and he handled all this by himself as Janita was teaching at Kentucky Music Week. 

You can see our weather station at the edge of the roof over the old garage, and just above it (the little white speck) is one of Cal Fire's spotter planes.

We're hoping this is the last wildfire scare of the season!
