CHIPBOARD

chipboard case

  • Standard – $60.00  (No longer available*)
  • Bass, Baritone & AJ – $65.00 (Only available with purchase of dulcimer)

The chipboard case is made of heavy duty pressed fiberboard covered in black vinyl, with a soft plush lining. It offers fairly good protection against knocks and light precipitation.

The Standard fits all Style I, Style II, Teardrop, Soprano, Force d'Ossché and Jean Ritchie models; the Bass fits the Bass, Baritone and Acoustic Jam model.

DIMENSIONS:

  • Standard:  Interior dimensions: 37.75" long • 5" wide tapering to 8" • 3.25" deep
  • Bass:  Interior dimensions: 38.5" long • 4.5" wide tapering to 10" • 3.5" deep

* The only U.S. manufacturer of chipboard cases has notified us that they will no longer be manufacturing any chipboard cases.  We will continue to look for another source but are not optimistic; the manufacturer said they do not know of any other companies in the US currently making a chipboard case.  For this reason, the remaining bass, baritione and AJ sized chipboards we have in stock will only be available for purchase with the dulcimer.
