What is a master violin?
What distinguishes a master violin from other violins, especially from high-quality journeymen's pieces or other works that have been made with strict adherence to craftsmanship standards? Being made by a master violin maker is a necessary, but not a sufficient condition for a violin to be part of our master violin selection. In addition to a clear and reliably provenance, we at Corilon violins consider the criterion of singular quality verifiable in all parts of a stringed instrument and an unmistakable, personal "signature" of the master to be decisive for the designation "master violin". For our solid origin analyses, we rely not only on our own experience but also on assessments by internationally recognized experts. The decisive role in the selection of a master violin is played by the perspective of musicians and collectors: if a violin is particularly characterized by the creative power of its maker and offers discerning musicians a first-class tonal experience, it qualifies as a master violin for sale in our collection.
