Perrin & Associates Fine Violins

Perrin & Associates Fine Violins was established in Baltimore in 1994 with a vision to provide violins, violas, cellos, and repair and restoration services to the professional and aspiring musician. We strive to create an environment where all string players feel comfortable talking with us about their instruments, auditioning instruments and bows, discussing repair options, and trying out new accessories. 

We have a wide range of instruments on hand, from wonderful historical examples to outstanding instruments by great modern makers and quality instruments for the beginner. We also carry a wide range of bows, from contemporary Brazilian to rare French.

Our Hours:

Tuesday through Friday: 10-5
Saturday: 9-4
Closed Sunday and Monday

Appointments are highly encouraged, especially on Saturdays when we have many visitors.
