Our catalogue of exclusive fine stringed instruments is distinctive because of the demanding quality standards we apply when we hand-select historic violins, violas, cellos and bows and make them ready to play. All instruments must have excellent musical qualities and be in good condition before we consider including them in our collection, regardless of their price point.
Even the instruments which make their way to us in flawless condition are thoroughly looked over by the expert luthiers at our workshop, and as a rule they are given a new customized set of fittings. The bridge and sound post are also replaced if they are not in top condition, the fingerboard is levelled, the upper and lower saddles replaced, the pegs refitted or replaced, the varnish cleaned and smaller glued patches corrected. As a finishing touch, we give them a new set of Pirastro Tonica strings so that our instruments reach the standard for which Corilon violins is internationally esteemed among a growing number of musicians.
