I like the classical style and I set up my instrument using a electric tuner.

The fiddle has a powerful, radiant and mature tone.

I like the old style that the fiddle has.

Sound Rating: 10


I live in Peru, and I had to wait three weeks for my purchase. It arrived in good conditions in a big box with the case.
It is quite easy to tune the fiddle.

Setup Rating: 10


It doesnt have any inlays and the wood seems strong.

It has some flaws because of the age but they have been fixed and they don't affect the quality of the sound.

Appearance Rating: 10


Yes, the fiddle is exactly like I saw and heard in the online catalog from the website.
It is good enough to last and definitely I can depend on it.

Reliability Rating: 10

Customer Service

They are very helpful, no problem for shipping to Peru.
I have the fiddle since july 2015, and I think i won't need to repair it because of the good conditions it arrived.

As I mentioned, the fiddle arrived in good conditions, and they sent me a case and a bow as gifts. Also the fiddle includes pirastro strings. But I think I will need to upgrade the bow.

Overall Comments

In general, I'm quite happy with my fiddle, and no doubts I would buy again one from Corilon shop. Its online catalog has a lot of details of every fiddle and best of all they were able to ship to Peru.
