Providing high quality bow and instrument repairs and maintenance to the string playing community in the Baltimore Washington Metropolitan area.
COVID-19 UPDATE: REOPENING
As part of phase one, retail businesses in Anne Arundel County are allowed to reopen in a partial capacity, with curbside service, as of May 15th at 5pm. Annapolis Bows & Violins looks forward to finally opening our new location at 177 Defense Highway, Suite 7. (Directions here.) It’s not the grand reopening we imagined when we moved, but in these times it is most important to make sure that everyone is as safe as possible!
Here are the protocols we have put in place to safeguard our staff and customers:
We will resume business hours beginning Tuesday, May 19th on a by-appointment-only basis. This is a good way to limit the number of people arriving at the shop at the same time. To make an appointment, call us at (410)440-7938 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Tell us your preferred drop off day and we will offer you the available times!
Employees and Customers will be required to wear a mask during their visit, and a 6ft distance must be maintained at all times. At Annapolis Bows & Violins, we take everyone’s health and safety very seriously. If you or a member of your party is unwilling to wear a mask, we respectfully ask that you delay your visit to Annapolis Bows & Violins until it is deemed safe by public health officials that masks are not necessary.
We will be accepting instrument repairs and bow rehairs, but customers should allow more time than our usual quick turnaround time, due to our sanitation process. Because of social distancing guidelines, we will not be performing ANY while-you-wait evaluations, rehairs, setup, or tonal adjustments at this time.
All incoming repairs will be required to sit in quarantine for three days before being evaluated or worked on. After that period, we will contact you to discuss the evaluation/estimate, and we will set an appointment for you to pick up the repair at that time. For the least amount of contact, card payments will be taken over the phone.
If you are interested in purchasing an instrument, unfortunately we cannot yet allow customers inside our new showroom to try out instruments. Instead, we are allowing up to 4 instruments taken out at a time on a ten-day trial, and we will do our best to provide a good selection to try at home, based on your budget and needs.
Thank you for your patience as we all establish a new “normal” for now. Our priority is everyone’s safety, while still providing the necessary repairs and maintenance, so the music can go on!
