I have been debating between purchasing a new violin versus an old and I'd like to share my experience with you. The idea of a brand new violin sounds nice but you run the risk of buying an instrument that would take hundreds of hours to break in.
However, I was lucky to stumble upon www.corilin.com and its owner Dr Annette Roeben who was kind enough to understand my requirements and recommend a violin that was made in Morecourt, France around 1900. It took about a week to receive the instrument from Germany and it arrived in a professionally packaged box and ready to played.
I am sharing my experience with you because this is a website that can definitely be trusted and I do highly recommend that if you're considering to purchase a music instrument, to buy heritage and something that has history.
