– Onsite, fully equipped rehearsal facilities –
Conveniently situated between Washington DC and Baltimore, we are located at The Shed, a brand new, multi-studio rehearsal facility on the campus of the University of Maryland designed to give artists the resources, time, and space to create, collaborate, learn, teach, and grow. 24/7 access + unlimited rehearsal time = look no further.
– On location technical support –
We also offer full support for any on-location staffing needs. Got a big show with lots of moving parts? We’re happy to provide experienced backline technicians to ensure that your show or event runs smoothly.
– Full production capabilities –
While we are primarily a backline company (do one thing and do it well, we say), we do have a modest inventory of sound and staging equipment. We have also built strong relationships with some of the best local and national sound, staging, lighting, and full production companies, and are happy to collaborate with them to help you complete any sized project.

“As a UK musician coming over to the US to play a tour, the most challenging aspect is knowing what kind of gear you’re going to get. As a DW endorsee, they sent us to Capitol Percussion, and we hit the jackpot. Jauvon is perhaps the most professional equipment provider I’ve ever encountered (and I’m not just saying that, I mean it). The gear was impeccable, perfectly tuned, and in solid cases. During rehearsals, I needed to change a few items and Jauvon had one of his chaps down on three separate occasions to make sure it was all taken care of. At the end of the tour, he even arranged for the gear to be picked up from the venue in New York City. The next time I’m back in the States on tour there is only one person I’m going to be calling.“Gordy MarshallDrummer, The Moody Blues
“Working with Capitol Percussion as The Clarice’s exclusive provider for backline has been nothing short of a pleasure. Their competitive pricing, impeccable customer service, equipment quality, and unmatched expertise is what puts them above the rest. Jauvon and his team provide personalized customer service, no matter the size of the job. The CP team will work quickly and efficiently to solve any issue without hesitation. If I’m ever asked for a recommendation for a backline provider in the DC region, I would resoundingly suggest Capitol Percussion!”Kara WhartonProduction Manager, The Clarice, University of Maryland
“Capitol Percussion is the only way to go. The quality of the instruments, especially keyboard/mallet instruments, is excellent. The percussion is in pristine condition. All auxiliary items (mallets, stands, etc.) were great. Drums available in all sizes and every brand. CP will meet all of your needs. You won’t be disappointed.”Warren WolfVibraphonist, SFJAZZ Collective
“Capitol Percussion is just a pleasure to work with. We recently needed tons of high quality percussion instruments for a week-long recording session in Virginia and they were able to cover all of our needs with exceptional efficiency, quality and service. Our third album will feature most of their instruments! They communicated clearly and were able to offer us the most competitive price around. Looking forward to doing business with them again. 5 stars!”Los Angeles Percussion QuartetGRAMMY nominated percussion ensemble
