We've been busy here at Blue Lion and just finished a run of instruments. Check our In Stock page for instruments ready to go. We have not strung up the new ones yet in case a customer wishes to opt for gold tuners, a pickup, or extra frets.
Also, check out the two Special Instruments listed on the In Stock page. One is a vintage IIR Rosewood and the other is a baritone or a bass with a radiused fretboard.
If you're thinking of ordering a dulcimer any time soon, we will be starting our next run in about a week or so and have only a few slots open for custom orders. We'll be building several instruments to take to some of the festivals Janita will be at this summer so we're limiting the number of custom orders we can build in the upcoming run.
Sometime this year (probably after the summer festival run) we hope to set aside some shop time and space to do a run of Blue Lion guitars. And since we ran out of Blue Lion dulcimer stands pretty quickly, we'll probably try and get another batch of those built in the next few months.
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 woods we use at Blue Lion, our rosewood is CITES certified and legally imported.
