At Annapolis Bows & Violins, we take everyone’s health and safety very seriously. If you do not have a mask, one will be provided for you. If you or a member of your party is unwilling to wear a mask, we ask that you delay your visit to Annapolis Bows & Violins until it is deemed safe by public health officials that masks are not necessary.
Because of social distancing guidelines, we are not performing any while-you-wait rehairs, setup, or tonal adjustments at this time. We do our best to provide our usual efficient turnaround time to get you playing again!

Everything You Need to Get Started
A properly working instrument is vital in the learning process - if your instrument isn’t working well, neither is your practicing! At Annapolis Bows & Violins, we are passionate about supporting string instrument education by providing well-made, professionally set-up instruments at affordable rental prices to students of all ages and levels.
All rentals include the instrument, bow, case, rosin, shoulder sponge, and cleaning cloth. Every instrument is set-up in shop to our high standards of sound and playability.
A percentage of your monthly fee goes towards the purchase price of your instrument.
Repairs and maintenance are covered within your rental fee for no additional cost! If anything pops, snaps, or breaks, simply bring it back in a timely manner and we will take care of it by either repairing or replacing it.
We currently offer violin and viola rentals of any size. Contact for pricing and availability!
