​Custom Orders

For ordering things that have to be built, send a minimum $200 deposit with a clear description of the options and items you desire. I'll contact you to confirm receipt of your deposit and to indicate how long it will be before completion. The balance will be due when your instrument is finished. I'll contact you via regular or e-mail when your instrument is ready.

International Orders

I am able to ship things overseas but you should be aware that it is somewhat expensive. The cost of shipping depends on the instrument and can range from $50 to $600. A zither would cost around $40 to ship while a bowed psaltery runs about $75. I'd be glad to give you a more accurate quote on the shipping; just send me your full address. I generally ship via First Class International which is the least expensive. This method takes around a week to get there although they have size restrictions so for larger instruments I am forced to use UPS or FedEx which is faster but more expensive. Paying for instruments can be done using paypal or credit cards by clicking the above pay button. Your order must be paid for before shipment. If you need help on how best to pay for or ship an instrument contact me. I'm gaining experience as I am selling more instruments overseas.

International Duty

Be aware that most countries charge duty on instruments purchased in the United States; that includes Canada. You should investigate what percentage you will be libel for and factor that into the cost of the actual instrument.
