Our catalogue of exclusive fine stringed instruments is distinctive because of the demanding quality standards we apply when we hand-select every historic violin, viola, cello and bow and make each one 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 up and a new set of fittings. The bridge and sound post are replaced if they are not in top condition, the fingerboard is corrected and levelled, the upper and lower saddles replaced, the pegs replaced, the varnish cleaned, polished and smaller glued patches corrected. As a finishing touch, we give them a new set of parts and Pirastro Tonica strings so that our instruments reach the standard for which Corilon violins is internationally esteemed among a growing number of musicians.
