We're in the Movies!

The Bluegrass Shack was recently filmed in the upcoming full length motion picture Belleville. Chris and The Chris Talley Trio are also featured in this new movie. It is a family-friendly movie suitable for both children and adults. It is about hope, and how a person and a community can make a difference in the life of another person. We are very excited to be a part of this! The Chris Talley Trio will be performing LIVE at several of the showings in Belleville, IL. For locations, showtimes and more, please visit www.bellevillethemovie.com. There are a number of other small businesses in and around the Belleville area that are also a part of this movie. This is your opportunity to support small businesses and bluegrass music in a very unique way!

Welcome!

Thanks for Coming to our Website!

Hello and welcome to Bluegrass Shack Productions! We specialize in acoustic instruments and accessories for bluegrass and folk musicians. We hope that you'll find just what you're looking for here. Our site is constantly being updated, so keep checking back. If there is something in particular that you are looking for, feel free to contact us. We also have a blog that you might want to visit. It has all kinds of information about our store, instrument repair, bluegrass music in general, lessons, personal experiences, etc.

We are located in New Athens, Illinois, near the Kaskaskia River. We're in a very small town with no fast food restaurants and no stoplights! However, we do have several nice family restaurants and a marina. We host an acoustic jam session every other Tuesday right here at our shop. Click here for a schedule and more detailed information. You can view a video clip from our April 14th jam: YouTube video.

Our store hours are Monday through Thursday from 1:00 - 9:00 p.m.; Fridays from 1:00 - 7:00 p.m.; and Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. We do close early from time to time, so if you plan on driving a long distance, please call us first at 618-475-3678. You may also call us for a special appointment if you would like to come at a time that we are not generally open. PLEASE NOTE: We will be closed Tuesday, April 22, 2014.

Shipping Details

We ship items out as soon as possible after we receive your order. If you are ordering an instrument, we need to have a street address -- not a P.O. Box! We almost always use FedEx to ship and insure our instruments. FedEx comes for pickups on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays. We ship the same day or the next pickup day after you place your order. We just need time to setup your instrument (we don't ship instruments "factory setup" or no setup). You will receive a tracking number directly from FedEx that will tell you the exact day to expect delivery. We ship FedEx Ground unless you would like to pay extra for faster shipping.

If you are ordering accessories without an instrument, your package will be shipped USPS, unless you would like to pay extra for faster shipping. We ship the same day or the next day after you place your order on all in-stock items. If the item you ordered is out of stock, you will receive an e-mail from us letting you know that we don't have the item in stock, and you have the option to cancel your order for a refund, or wait for the item to come in. If you have questions about our instruments, accessories, shipping & delivery, or anything else, please ask! We'll do our best to help you in any way we can.

Return Policy

We offer a 7-day, no questions asked return policy. If for any reason you are not satisfied with your purchase, please let us know right away. We will work with you to fix any issues or you may return the item. On our violins/fiddles, we also offer a 100% trade in policy. Click here for the full policy.
