Blue Lion Dulcimers

Santa Margarita, California, is a tiny hamlet of 1,300 people. It is a quaint artist and family community. Doesn't it, then, seem so very appropriate that this is the home of Janita and Bob Baker, makers of Blue Lion Dulcimers?! Widely accepted to be the ultimate in dulcimer craftsmanship, these instruments literally speak elegance and quality from the first moment you hold them in your lap!

Janita and Bob built their first mountain dulcimer from scratch using walnut from Janita's Grandad's Illinois farm in the 1970s. Since that time they have built over 4000 dulcimers--their yearly output is just 150 instruments! Each dulcimer is individually crafted by Bob and Janita, to the highest standards possible!

 

It Has been our honor and pleasure to have sold these Dulcimers over the past decades! Our friendship with Janita and Bob has been priceless !!!

The tones of this Walnut/Cedar treasure are resonant and warm, with excellent balance between treble and bass strings--all the while retaining amazing clarity and articulation!
