I've been viewing violins at the Corilon on-line violin shop located in Germany. The site has a large inventory of instruments over a wide price range. The instruments are well documented and even have an audio clip. Nonetheless, I have some trepidation about buying an instrument from an on-line shop. Has anyone bought an instrument from this site? Were you happy with the outcome?
I've bought 2 violins and 1 bow from them in the past and have been very happy. They have a generous return period as well. J
Thanks for your comment Johathan. Were your purchases on-line or at the shop?
Hi Leslie, I purchased online.
Thanks Jonathan, I'm going forward with my purchase.....
I purchased a very nice violin from Corilon Violins, made by Erich Sandner in 1973 in Mittenwald. The violin arrived in excellent condition and I have enjoyed playing it. I feel that I received full value for my purchase.
Fantastic! Happy Playing :-)
I have bought five violins from Corilon in the past six months, at different price levels (a couple of them for friends starting out) and I have been very pleased with the instruments and the service. Some real bargains out there!
Easier if you are in Europe, I suppose, to use the 'buy-try-return if not like' offer (30 days to make up your mind) because of postage (although if you live in Germany, return postage is free, I believe.)
I would have no qualms about Corilon at all - they are sound and reliable as a company.
