Festival Bag


Melanie has done it again! This Festival Bag was designed specifically for hammered dulcimer festival enthusiasts like you. There are pockets for everything you may need, including hammers, phone, wallet, tuning wrench, picks, and more. She’s even made an external plastic pocket so you can easily glance at your festival schedule while on the go!


During hammered dulcimer festival season, do you inevitably forget to pack one thing or another as the big day rolls around? We certainly do! But with our Festival Bag, you won’t forget a thing. There’s a place for everything, and everything can go in its place.

Melanie’s very own custom design includes:

  • Side pocket on the outside for easy access to your hammers: Just grab and play!
  • Pocket on the inside to keep your phone safe
  • Pockets on the inside for extra hammers, pens, picks, electronic tuner, or tuning wrench
  • Pocket for your wallet inside-no need to carry your purse!
  • The outside see-through plastic pocket allows you to store your festival schedule and easily glance at it as you hustle to your next class
  • There is plenty of room to fit an iPad or laptop inside. Tuck your class handouts away safely for more learning later at home

Made of heavy-duty ballistic nylon, this bag is built to last. You can easily wipe the festival dust off with a damp rag to keep it looking spiffy for the next season. The Festival Bag is fully lined, and comes with an adjustable strap to throw over your shoulder as you explore the festival grounds, hands free. The dimensions are 11 x 13 x 2 1/2″; just big to fit everything you might need for a fun festival day!

Availability: We are a small Mom and Pop enterprise, and can’t have everything we make in stock all the time.  We should have all of the accessories and small items all of the time.  We also try to keep natural Phoebe and Chickadee dulcimers around all of the time.  But other finishes or higher end models will be hit or miss.  We build dulcimers 6 of each model at a time to get the economy of scale, so if we have them, we have them, if not, it could be a month or two depending on where we are in our cycle.  If you have a deadline, please contact us for availability of what you are thinking of getting before placing the order.

Shipping Info:  A shipping calculator with all the functionality would cost us big money, so we opted to use the basic and reliable Paypal checkout system and include a reasonable average shipping cost on the price of each item.  If you order multiple items to ship in the same package, we will refund the extra via Paypal.

International Shipping: Our standard shipping amount is for shipments to the lower 48 United States. We can ship internationally, but not to everywhere. Our packages must go via US Postal Service to be as economical as possible. It depends on the rules of the receiving country what size package they will accept. In general most European countries are OK. Also Australia, New Zealand, and Japan. If you are wondering, you can check yourself on the Post Office website. Our most common package is 44 inches long, 24 inches wide, and 6 inches thick for a total length plus girth of 104 inches. They weigh 33 pounds. This should be enough info to get you a quote. You can always contact us for a quote, too.

Payment Info: We have been using Paypal for years, and believe it is the safest online way to pay.  You don’t need to have an account with them to use our Paypal checkout system, and best of all, we never need to know your credit card or bank details. Of course, we still like checks best since they don’t cost us money to process!  If you want to send us one in the mail, we would greatly appreciate it! Just don’t use the shopping cart, and contact us directly with your order, and we’ll work out the total and details.  You can also call us directly with a credit card number for payment.

Dealers: When possible, it is always best to go see and try out an instrument before buying. You can also get the input of a knowledgeable sales person. A good dealer will have in stock several different models of hammered dulcimer. Some will even have instruments from different makers, and it is very educational to see and hear the difference.

We have many trusted dealers all over the country that we have been working with for many years. We consider these folks close friends, and would not hesitate to recommend them to you. Contact us and we can put you in touch with someone near you.
