Fine stringed instruments
Experienced musicians have repeatedly confirmed that selecting a fine stringed instrument involves far more than craftsman knowledge, expertise in musical history, an understanding of the market, or simply being lucky as you research good options. Instead, what matters most is when all of these qualifications come together naturally, which gives them a comprehensive profile of historical instruments, each with its own personality, and provides information on handling them responsibly. For many years now, the team at Corilon violins has been at home in the world of fine stringed instruments, and as a result we regularly discover historic and contemporary gems that deserve to be included in the Corilon violins catalogue because of their distinctive sound and their place in the history of instruments. Our workshop gives the instruments all of the care, maintenance and ― if necessary ― restoration measures they need, ensuring that they are in peak condition and have the ideal circumstances for the sound to develop to its fullest. Our team combines violin-making excellence and many years of craftsman experience with high scholarly standards and detailed knowledge of the instrumental market for fine stringed instruments; all of this together makes us a reliable partner for musicians and collectors looking for fine violins, an especially valuable violin, viola, cello or bow and for those who wish to sell one. Consequently, the Corilon violins catalogue has become one of the foremost international sources for fine instruments.
