Especially old violins with their mature, individual character are true companions in orchestra playing, chamber music and solo performance. Corilon violin's online catalog features a unique choice of German, French and Italian violins for sale that inspire the serious musician with their delicate tone and workmanship, selected woods and fine antique varnish. Advanced and professional violinists alike appreciate antique violins for their richness in tone, or as a desirable alternative with investment properties. Browse our old violin shop's online selection of fine violins presented with authentic audio sound samples. Search our website for fullsize violins for sale by a special maker or origin by typing e. g. "Italian violin", "German violin", or "French violin" into the search box - and take a look at our special online selections of violin bows and old children's violins.
