Contact Me

Phone: (304) 263-2531   (landline)

I do not have a phone in my workshop to avoid having someone calling me during a delicate job on your instrument.  

My wife, Joanie often answers the phone and can answer many questions.

Email is the very best way to contact me. I generally respond within a few days and often within a few hours.

If for any reason, I have not responded in a timely manner, please try again. Although we do occasionally take vacations, they are rarely long.

Mailing Address:

Nick Blanton
PO Box 1473
Shepherdstown, WV 25443

Workhop Hours: 

I generally work most days from ~9AM-6PM with a long lunch break. I do not have a retail space with "store hours".


Customers often like to visit my workshop to play my demo models, see inlays or wood, discuss details or have an instrument repaired.  

Email to schedule a time and get directions.

A good place to see multiple models of my instruments is during the Upper Potomac Dulcimer Fest in Shepherdstown, WV in March. See the web pages at
