Good evening Dr. Roeben,
Opus 17 was well received today. I really like it, optically and also acoustically. In comparison, my choice fell on the "new one", although Opus 12 also sounds nice, a bit brighter overall. But this too violin will find its player. The instruments from your series are definitely recommended. So, Opus 17 stays with me. I am not familiar with UPS, can I also send the Opus 12 back with DHL? I read that you will get a copy of the invoice back - but I can also send the original. I look forward to a short feedback and thank you for your advice and the opportunity to choose between two instruments. Thank you and greetings S.V.

Good afternoon Dr. Roeben, nice, I'm happy and excited!
Yes, the violin sounds really great, I hardly like to put it down :) The only thing I think is the A string, which could sound a little "softer" - but the ears are differently sensitive. So I'd like to hear whether Opus 17 might appeal more.
But as I said, a great instrument for this price range and super easy to play! In the search for my dream violin, I really played a lot of violins, including listening to old instruments in different price ranges. This Opus 12 cannot be topped in terms of sound for the price, because I've heard much more expensive instruments that don't sound nearly as nice. Well, have a nice rest of Sunday, thank you for your trouble.
Many greetings S.V.

Hello mrs dr. Roeben,
many thanks. The certificate has arrived.
I would also like to thank you for the entire flawless handling of the purchase contract for an antique Mittenwald cello, built around 1850, your inventory number 5431, including shipping. The offer description was complete and accurate, and the cello was securely packaged.
The instrument is in good, age-appropriate condition and, according to the description, has a very nice sound.
My mail can be used as a reference.
With best regards and wishes

Dear Corilon team!
The ordered violin arrived here today, Friday 29 January 2021, correct and okay.
Thank you for the attached shoulder rest!
But from a violin wooden bow - at least in a slightly above-average quality, which is by no means widespread! - hadn't actually been mentioned at all. Thank you very much for that too!
Now I NATURALLY "played" the violin IMMEDIATELY - with my NEW Müsing C2 carbon bow (and for comparison also with your wooden bow) - and I am VERY, VERY PLEASANTLY surprised.
This instrument has VERY CLEAR sound potential - as my limited preliminary impression is - probably especially in the direction of what one could tentatively call a "cantable, sweet and Italian sound".
Compared to my second violin, I especially notice the range of the e-string of your instrument, which second violin clearly "weakens" in this area.
But I am not yet sure whether the G-string of my second violin remains "better" for the time being - until the new violin is "played in" and has received other strings - (Thomastik Vision Solo Titanium) - for the "gypsy tone" .
In a word: I am hereby solemnly waiving my right of return - and do not even think about giving away such a great instrument, which I could have used very well in my very unsuccessful music teacher studies, where I was with a 900 Deutschmark Mittenwald Manufactory violin at the time had to get by, which has long since been passed on to the next generation of beginners.
Of course, if you're not a Paganini, you don't need one Stradivarius!
Nevertheless, with the QUALITY you have delivered, I would like to be carried away by offering you my sheet music - arrangements, arrangements, editions, compositions - for free use:

Hi Dr Roeben!
I received the Traian violin and it is great! I am enjoying it tremendously. Thank you for your service. Would you be able to recommend a good German antique bow to match it? My price point is at about 1K euro. Regards, P.G.

Dear Dr. Roeben,
I've had this Saxon violin for a month now and I'm very happy with it. The audio sample on their homepage was not deceptive. Due to the large body, the violin has a very sonorous sound on the G and D strings. I had already noticed in the audio sample that the E string also sounds very clear and without any background noise. That's why I chose her in the end. In the meantime I have played it intensively for chamber music, unfortunately because of the cancellation of the orchestra rehearsals due to corona measures, I have not yet been able to test the violin there.
So I am very satisfied with the choice, and with a very good price-performance ratio. I will be happy to recommend Corilon Violins.
With best regards
C. N.

Good evening Dr. Roeben
the viola is really noble. It is so easy to play and has a wonderfully balanced, bright ("flute") but still beautifully carrying sound. I am completely happy with the Corilon instruments. In addition, the Corilon / Ouchard bow fits and supports the instrument perfectly.
For my part, a very big thank you for the many wonderful hours with your instruments and bows and your highly valued work.
All the best and have a great summer.
Sincerely

22.7.2020
Good afternoon Dr. Roeben,
I have tested everything and in the end I decided on the 3/4 violin from Neuner & Hornsteiner (item 5785). Even if it's the size of a child, auditioned it so much that I couldn't stop playing and listening to it.
I get along very well with the size (or rather the smallness) and it has such a character of its own that it is simply full-fledged for me, regardless of how it would be compared to a 4/4.
It will be a pleasure for me to play on it and gradually get to know it better and better. If there is a certificate for this violin, I would like to acquire it as well.
One of the three chin rests that were sent along was able to solve the chin rest problem! Thanks a lot for this!
So now I would send back two violins and two chin rests. (...) Greetings and thank you for a wonderful instrument!
If you can find the time, maybe you could write a few more sentences about how you would assess the Neuner & Hornsteiner violin after it has been processed? What is noticeable about it, about the paintwork and above all the sound. I can just be impressed with this little violin, but I can't put it into words that describe the violin a bit more appropriately and professionally.
G. H.

Hello Dr Roeben,
Just let you know that I've already received the package. My daughter is so so exciting to see her new 1/4 violin and can't wait to play it with her 1/8 bow. We all love its radiant and mature sound.
Very glad to deal with you. I would definitely continue to purchase 1/2, 3/4, 4/4 historic violins from you when my daughter grows up.
Thanks and best regards,
Y Z.

3.7.2020
Hello,
Just writing to let you know the violin arrived safely today, and everything seems to be in order.
I got a quite substantial improvement in my student violin when switching to a ConCarbo tailpiece, and that allowed me to explore tone production and high positions a bit further - but this Opus 12 is something else entirely! So much power and resonance, and it responds on a completely different level, allowing me to feel and hear exactly what I'm doing. I'm also loving the tone and the wide range of colors available even with my limited skills. This is exactly the upgrade I hoped for, and I believe it will be tremendously helpful.
Thank you,
David

Dear Dr. Roeben,
Thank you for the beautiful violin that I purchased from Corilin. I love it! Both the sound and condition are absolutely amazing.
I am very grateful to have been able to purchase this violin. It will be well cared for, played, and cherished.
What brand of strings were strung on my violin for future reference? Pirastro ...?
With kind regards,

Hi,
The violin is fantastic. Its sounds great and stays in tune. It was actually still in tune when it arrived from Germany. I look forward to playing I everyday. . I can read the Gaetano Chiocchi on the label but what else is written there? May I ask where did you acquire it and do you know its history besides what’s on the description on the web site?
Thanks,

Good evening Dr. Roeben
Thank you very much for delivering the phenomenal Ouchard bow.
He arrived safely at my place this Monday afternoon.
Just in time for our quartet rehearsal. Now it is already fully integrated and it is impossible to imagine my "repertoire" without it!
It goes so well with my viola and plays superbly.
Another masterpiece from your company!
I have already initiated payment and should be carried out tomorrow, Tuesday.
Again, a big thank you and all the best and a healthy time!
Kind regards

Dear Dr Roeben,
I'm thinking about getting a new violin bow and I would be happy to have your personal recommandation. As you probably remember I bought a good Mittenwald violin of your catalog, (inventory number 5422); a very responsive instrument, warm sound, that I'm in love with, and I'm looking for a bow that could well fit with this instrument. I have a not too bad Erwin Sprager bow but it's not perfect.
In your opinion, would bows B934 (JTL Grandini) or B757 (Bazin) be good choices in your catalog? Would you have a special recommandation (my budget is max. 2000 euros) considering my violin?
Thanks in advance,
G. P.

Thank you for the excellent processing of the Michetti violin and the professional and quick processing of the order.

Dear Dr Roeben,
as you might have noticed, I did not return the Sebastian Klotz violin. In fact i'm extremely happy with it. I needed to get used to it a little bit, as it's quite different from my other violon.
But now I'm used to it, it's hard to stop playing it.
So once again, thank you for the good experience.
kind regards

Hello Corilon, We purchased a violin for my daughter from you, this past July —- inventory # 5415, a composite instrument believed to be by Nicolas Gosset. We are extremely pleased with the violin. Its sound is truly magnificent and it can easily hold its own with instruments costing 20 times the price we paid for it. I believe it has already made a significant difference in my daughter’s playing. Now we are in the market for a bow. (...) We would appreciate any recommendations you can give.
Sincerely, D. M.

25.1.2019
Good evening Dr. Roeben, thank you very much for the chinrest and the certificate. I would like to tell you one more thing: When playing the new violin with my wooden bow and my carbon bow, there was hardly any difference, while my old violin with the Carabon bow sounds much better. I changed the strings on my new violin because I wanted to try out whether it might sound a little warmer with the Obligato strings. Before that, however, I wound up the new perpetual strings from Pirastro and I'm thrilled with them. I was concerned about whether it might sound sharper or more pointed, but that's not the case at all, it sounds a lot fuller and more brilliant without losing any warmth. This sound potential only comes into its own with the carbon bow, the wooden bow (a good student bow) cannot keep up. Even if it will be a long time before I can even come close to utilizing the potential of the violin with my (currently still very modest) technical playing skills, I am thrilled. Sincerely, K. C.
J. L.

Hello mrs dr. Roeben,
the violin arrived today and I'm very, very excited. My violin teacher, who no longer has to endure the squeaking and screeching of my previous violin, is even more enthusiastic. Her statement: "1500 euros are far too little for the sound!"

I decided on the B843 arch for 650 euros. I'll send the other one back on Monday.
Thank you very much for the great service and of course for the violin case!

Good afternoon Dr. Roeben
the wonderful bow arrived safely at my place in Zurich this Friday afternoon!
Thank you very much for the quick delivery.
I have been able to play with the [Johannes Finkel] bow since 4 p.m. and I am absolutely thrilled. It is extremely pleasant to play and the sound is really full and rich in warmth and character.
Whether on the 1820 Didier Nicolas or the 2004 Philippe Girardin, he develops a tone that is explicitly full of character. But you wrote it so beautifully and perfectly in the arc description; there is nothing to add except that I fell in love with him straight away. I am really happy and proud to be able to continue his story. It looks so noble and rich and plays so fantastic and easy!
A huge thank you especially to you and the whole Corilon team!
Life and music are twice as fun!
All the best and thank you again for your valuable work!
Best regards

Dear Dr. Roeben,
First of all, thank you for the quick processing. I received the violin today and I am thrilled.
I recently bought one of your violins and could not imagine that I would be enthusiastic about another violin to an even greater extent so quickly. I'll play it for a few more days and see if the enthusiasm continues. If so, could I send the other violin back for 1600 EUR and keep it for 2200 EUR? I think I would have read something on your website that if you buy an instrument that is at least 500 EUR more expensive, the other is taken back by you and you only cover the difference. Is that right ?
Thank you again and best regards,
C. F.

Dear Mrs. Roeben,
As expected, your shipment arrived safely. I have now played my “new” violin almost every day and am happy about its full, warm tone. The bow also goes well with it - you made a good choice. Thank you for your good advice! Now a question. My old violin is a Roman Teller from Eltersdorf (built in 1946). It has some signs of use, but is still visually appealing and acoustically acceptable, even if without the beautiful overtones of the Roth violin. I have played it all these years since I was a student at the Nuremberg Conservatory (that was a long time ago), mostly in an ensemble, occasionally also as a soloist and in folk music. The bow goes well with it too. Now I would like to pass it on in good hands, but it's not that easy here in America. Do you have any advice on that?
Thank you again for today and best regards

Dear Dr Annette,
I received my violin order no.4761 a few weeks ago. The violin arrived in perfect condition as it was very well packaged. I am extremely please with my purchase. The description on your site about this instrument was a perfect description. "The powerful warm, large sound is strong and warm, clear, with some mature sweetness, rounded, well balanced with beautiful resonance, and excellent projection". Also, your recording of the instrument was very accurate. The violin, being my 8th, over the years in search of the perfect violin in my price range, what exactly what I was looking for. The setup was professionally executed and plays like a dream.
I appreciate the 30 trial period for me to fully get to know the instrument but I will be keeping this one.
Thanks again

to Dr Annette Roeben
the violin ordered arrived at home yesterday December 13th. Very good packaging.
We can actually read under the string of E the inscription Nicolas aïné, handwriting
The first contact is good with a length of the body a little unusual.
But I knew it.
The general appearance is very good (very few scratches) and I like the color of the varnish.
It's a fine violin in the tradition of French violinmakers like Lupot or Gand, We had at home a Gand-Bernardel violin (circa 1880?) which I returned to its American owner two months ago.
I am now going to tame this violin
The sound is interesting: deep, sweet and powerful at the same time
Something like "suave" in french

9.10.2017
Good afternoon Dr. Roeben,
Thank you for your kind feedback! I'm curious. The lower pressure tolerance is - I think - no problem. I bought inventory number 1453 for my daughter some time ago because of her shorter arms and smaller hands. With this we want to try out the bow. The violin responds easily and already develops a wonderful, full and mature sound with a simpler bow, even without pressure. If the bow still brings improvements in terms of sound, we would have achieved an almost unbeatable price-sound result - without a "slip of paper" or "stamp" and thanks to your wide range of quality and price. Of course I first have to "borrow both ..." for the upcoming Christmas concerts from my daughter.
Many greetings from Berlin

Hello Mrs. Roeben,
thanks for your effort. You are right, I shouldn't buy a violin for less than 2500 euros. It's unfortunate for the following reasons:
1. The playability is very professional, the revision is very successful. The movement of the vertebrae, as well as the height of the bridge, the weight and the equipment are first class.
2. The instrument looks very classic, modest. The set is very coherent and perfectly adapted to the paintwork. Likewise, only components made of harmonious wood are used.
You should always ignore this factor when looking for an instrument, but unfortunately I have to say that I really like the look of the violin and that I won't find an instrument without scratches and in this modest presentation so quickly.
3. The sound is penetrating and powerful. Here, too, a very competent and perfect setting of the voice.
Why didn't it come to the purchase? The violin is not balanced. Everything from the A string upwards sounds very nice, but especially the G string sounds quite modest.
Therefore, I will stick to your recommendation to keep an eye on instruments from 2500 euros. 
Now I don't want to bother you further in your limited time, but I would like to give you feedback for your work. A violin is just not an industrial product and that doesn't make the selection easy.
I will send the violin back well padded and if I find a suitable instrument I will contact you again in the next few months.
Best regards,
H. M.

Hello Mrs. Roeben,
the Labrame viola has arrived safely. I am extremely impressed! The instrument has a strong yet soft, singing tone, a good response across all strings and is clearly a viola, so not a “slightly larger violin”.
Already yesterday, two days after reception, I was able to perform the wonderfully sad viola solo in Puccini's Requiem under Maestro Stefano Barberino in a cheerful lament, in the spiritual office in the very large, spacious hall church of St. Bonifatius in Kreuzberg. We filled up the space effortlessly - and the space filled us up!
Thanks to Corilon!
Greetings

Dear Dr. Roeben,
Thank you for your recommendation. The viola was described very aptly on your website. In fact, it's the right tool for me. The size fits and I like its sound / character very much. She was also able to convince my teacher. But now I have one more question, which strings (company, material and thickness) did the violin maker use on this viola?
Thanks again for everything
With best regards
H.P.

Thank you, as always, we are delighted with you and your team! With the new strings and the sound optimization, the violin puts a smile on our faces again.

Hi Corilon,
I just received my Large-sized English violin. I have to say the violin is beautiful from the design to the sounds just like the description on your website. The sounds project clearly, brightly and loudly. The Pirastro Tonica works on the violin very well. I love the violin a lot !!! Thank you for selling an amazing instrument, Van (Vietnam)

Hello Mrs. Dr Roeder,
My violin sounds as expected. I enjoy this clarity!
Thank you very much for the case, the shoulder rest and for choosing the bow.
Now I'll look for a teacher! I am looking forward to and will be happy to recommend you.
With kind regards
K. R.

First off, thank you for my beautiful violin! I love it so much! I was trying out a violin that was priced at $ 16,000.00, and everyone who heard my violin from Corilon, liked mine better than the more expensive instrument. So, thank you again!
With kind regards,

Dear Dr. Roeben,
I received my violin two weeks ago and am thrilled with it beyond words.It sounds so much better than my original Chinese violin; in fact my Chinese violin sounds as if it is being played from the inside of a box compared to this instrument. I know this Mirecourt represents the very low end of your instruments, though to me it is nothing short of amazing. I often just hold it and look at it wondering its history these last 115 years. I like that it appears quite dirty / aged inside and even the label which says, 'Antonius Stradivarius Cremona Facibat Anno 1690' rather than the label from where the instrument was manufactured is fascinating to me. Not sure why they would place such a label there, rather than their factory.
Instead of taking up more of your valuable time, I want to express my gratitude for your assistance and recommendations. I will absolutely sing the prices of Corilon and am thrilled with my purchase. Thank you very much!

Good afternoon Dr. Roeben,
I would like to inform you that I am really very satisfied with the Czech violin, the sound of which you recommended! The instrument sounds great, looks nice and corresponds exactly to my ideas. I am very satisfied to have found such a beautiful instrument straight away - and I really had doubts whether it would be possible via the Internet! Many thanks also for the bow and violin case that my son took possession of!
With best regards,
Dr. S. H.-R.

Dear Corilon Violins,
I have been playing the Romedia Muncher violin now for nearly a month and I would like to let you know that I am extremely pleased with my choice of violin and hope to be playing it for many years.
I would like to thank your team for the hospitality that I found when I arrived and the assistance to ensure that I chose the right instrument for me.
It would be useful for me to know what restoration was done by Corilon on this violin and if you know of any history behind it that you may be aware of.
Also, if I know of anyone else looking to buy a violin, I will direct them to your website.
Best regards,
R. (UK)

Dear Dr. R.,
I have received today the violin, ahead of the suggested delivery day. It's a beautiful instrument and I'm glad I listen to your advice. :)
Thank you very much for your recommendation and for your good service.
Best,

Dear Dr, A. R.,
I received the violin I ordered (i1 x South German lion head violin, around 1850, inventory number: 2493). I've played it several times now and I'm very excited about the sound of the violin. Since it is smaller than my old one (and I have relatively small fingers), I can also reach high altitudes much more easily. Overall, playing this violin is also much less strenuous. All in all, you can say that this instrument is the right one for me. I would therefore like to thank you again for the good service. I will surely enjoy this instrument for many years!
As promised, I sent you my old violin yesterday. I have tried to pack it neatly and safely and I hope that it arrives safely with you.
I now wish you a nice first week at work.
I warmly greet you
A. U.
