Corilon violins's reviews at fiddle hangout


Dr Annette Roeben,
Thank you for your response and kind offer. It makes perfect sense. I always wondered why it felt so light, and yes, the sound is very good- it is my teacher's favorite! Thank you for you offer of compensation, but I have a luthier who I think can help me with this, and that will not be necessary. I do not want to change what this violin is, and will keep the hardwood.

I also want to give a good report about my 1950 unlabeled German violin. It's sound has opened up after daily playing. I found that it needed to have the sound drawn out of it, and cannot be played hard. Because my technique has improved, I am able to do that, and it has rewarded me with amazing tone qualities and projection. It has clear, bell like tones that are pure. Another interesting thing is that it can be played with a bow that is completely un-tensioned and give stunning overtones. (done by mistake). It is VERY interesting! It must be the tone woods as you described.

When I am ready to upgrade, I will surely come back to Corilon.

Dear Dr. Roeben
I have received my violin couple of days ago and very happy with packaging and all and excited to get started!
L. (Saudi Arabia)

Dear Dr Roeben,
Yes the condition of the violin is very good and I particularly like the golden colour! Its very eye catching.
My son already tried on the violin, he likes it very much. Surely it will take some time for him to get the best out of it.
Really appreciated your professional help.
Merry Christmas!

Dear Dr Röben
Thank you very much indeed for my order. It arrived without fuss or frustration (unlike most of my orders from much larger online retailers), beautifully & carefully packed along with the bow. My violin teacher had certain reservations about me ordering a new fiddle over the internet but I think she will be happy, as I indeed am, extremely so, with your products and service.
Many, many thanks

Dear Dr. Roeben:
The sound of this violin is wonderful.
I would like to thank you for your original recommendation.
Best regards, D.-H. (Taiwan)

I just wanted to let you know I received the violin yesterday and am already in love with it's beautiful rich tone, even after limited play. It is even more beautiful than I could have hoped for, both in tone and appearance.
The quality and color of the varnish is simply magical and amazing, even more so in person. Pictures certainly did not do it justice.
I am so appreciative of the work that you do, giving old violins new life and finding them homes where they can truly be appreciated, cherished, and loved for the amazing unique treasures that they are.
Thank you for sending me such an amazing instrument that is truly a work of art. Had it been me, I would've found it impossible to part with it. I am so grateful you are willing to to share.
It is dedinitely an inspiration and I look forward to working hard enough to be worthy of such a spectacular violin.
Best Regards,
N. S. (United States)

Hello Dr Roeben

Thanks you so much
Very best

Hello Dr. Roeben,
I am so glad to share with you that our private violin teacher loves the violin with one word "Supper"! The violin teacher is one of the best violinist in Austin studied in Moscow with Kogan. He is very pleased with your instrument.
In fact, I recommended one of my student who purchased one of of your hundred years old cello last year. We love it and I started to pay a close attention to your company. You might have more buyers from my students every year now on.
[...] Your lovely violin arrived just on time. My daughter will have a competitive violin competition next month. This beautiful violin will help her indeed. Again, thank you very much for your excellent work.

Dear Dr Roeben,
I had a great experience visiting Corilon violins and my son loves the violin we chose. I would like to ask master violin maker Bernhard D. Fischer if the violin case that came with the violin has a key to it? I forgot to ask about it, and if a key is available it will be great!
Thank you!
Best regards

Hi Corilon,
I just received my Large-sized English violin. I have to say the violin is beautiful from the design to the sounds just like the description on your website. The sounds project clearly, bright and loudly. The Pirastro Tonica works on the violin very well. I love the violin a lot!!! Thank you for selling an amazing instrument, Van (Vietnam)

The violin bow arrived safely, and I am very happy with it. The description was accurate and it has all the qualities I was looking for. Thank you!!!
Best wishes,
Diego R. (Japan)

Dear Dr. Roeben,
The instrument is arrived at my room on 7th April 2016.
How beautiful and resonant voice it has!
I am so pleased it and appreciated to get acquainted with a new friend.
Thank you.
M. M. (Japan)

First off, thank you for my beautiful violin! I love it so much! I was trying out a violin that was priced at $16,000.00, and everyone who heard my violin from Corilon, liked mine better than the more expensive instrument. So, thank you again!

With kind regards,
D. E.

Dear Dr. Roeben,
I received my violin two weeks ago and am thrilled with it beyond words. It sounds so much better than my original Chinese violin; in fact my Chinese violin sounds as if it is being played from the inside of a box compared to this instrument. I know this Mirecourt represents the very low end of your instruments, though to me it is nothing short of amazing. I often just hold it and look at it wondering its history these last 115 years. I like that it appears quite dirty/aged inside and even the label which says, 'Antonius Stradivarius Cremona Facibat Anno 1690' rather than the label from where the instrument was manufactured is fascinating to me. Not sure why they would place such a label there, rather than their factory.
Instead of taking up more of your valuable time, I want to express my gratitude for your assistance and recommendations. I will absolutely sing the praises of Corilon and am thrilled with my purchase. Thank you very much!! Best regards,
J. V.W.

Dear Dr Roeben,
Yesterday i've received in perfect condition the violin, i think it's a very good sound instrument, strong and resonant, at 650 euro it's a sort of miracle! To my musicians friends i suggest certainly Corilon instruments.
Best regards

Hello Dr Roeben ,
Just a quick note to let you know that the Mirecourt bow I purchased for a friend has arrived in NZ safely and has been deemed to be a most acceptable gift.
Thank you for your assistance.
Kind regards,
E. S.

Dear Dr. Annette T. M. Roeben,
It was a long journey. The violin has arrived just now.
I am much satisfied with this violin. Good sound and nice appearance!
Thank you very much.
Best regards,

Dear Corilon Violins,

I have been playing the Romedio Muncher violin now for nearly a month and I would like to let you know that I am extremely pleased with my choice of violin and hope to be playing it for many years.
I would like to thank your team for the hospitality that I found when I arrived and the assistance to ensure that I chose the right instrument for me.
It would be useful for me to know what restoration was done by Corilon on this Violin and if you know of any history behind it that you may be aware of.
Also, if I know of anyone else looking to buy a violin, I will direct them to your website.
Best Regards,

Dear Corilon,

Friday it is arrived the violin. I like it so much, i am really happy.
Thanks a lot!
S. B.

Dear Dr. R.,

I have received today the violin, ahead of the suggested delivery day. It's a beautiful instrument and I'm glad I listened to your advice. :)
Thank you very much for your recommendation and for your good service.
M. H.
