Bowen Violin Shop


Welcome to the Bowen Violin Shop web site!
We have both retired and have closed our shop permanently.  We thank all our customers and friends for their support since 1981 when we first opened, and for their good wishes now.  If you wish to contact us with comments or questions, we are still receiving emails at info@bowenviolinshop.com and will respond as quickly as possible.  Keep making music!  It's been a pleasure.

Our family owned and operated source for affordable new and older violin-family instruments, bows and accessories was founded in Chicago in 1981.
For many years we maintained two locations -- one in the Hyde Park Bank Building and one in the Fine Arts Building downtown -- we closed the downtown shop in 2013.
Our clients were beginners and musicians of all ages and levels of accomplishment. We were located in Chicago, Illinois, but our friends are everywhere.
