Germantown Violin Co in 2020

Wow…these are unusual times.

As I write this message, I very much hope that this note finds you, your families, students, staffs, friends and THEIR families doing well during these unusual times. The Coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic has impacted all our lives in ways we couldn’t really imagine not even four weeks ago, and it looks like we need to settle in for the long haul over the next couple of months.

I wanted to let you know that we at Germantown Violin Co are taking all necessary precautions to limit the spread of the Coronavirus. We are a small office and there is very little risk of any of us becoming exposed at our place of business in Maryland. We continue to be available to all of our customers and friends via phone and email. As factories reopen and begin to ship again, our capabilities will likewise increase. Of course, situations may change, and we will keep you informed as soon as we are aware of any changes.

One of my favorite parts of my role at GVC is getting “on the road” to visit your stores and schools to learn more about how we can work together as a team. It is killing me to not be able to see all of you in person! As soon as it is reasonable to do so, I will get on the road again! In the meantime, I hope we can put technology to work for us to continue meeting face-to-face via platforms like Zoom, Skype, and Google Meet.

Finally, PLEASE let us know if there is anything that we can do to assist you. Our capabilities are fairly specific and limited, but we will share what we have. This is new territory for all of us, and we are learning as we go. Our top priority, as many others have said, is the health and safety of our associates, dealer-partners, and their customers. Tied for a close second is running a successful stringed-instrument business while promoting music education, and we couldn’t do that without all of you.

Thank you very much for your continued support and business!

With gratitude,

Chris Davis, in my home office in Haymarket, VA
