I was looking to buy a good German violin for my son learning Indian classical music (carnatic music). I came across Corilon website and was quite impressed with the offering covering a wide range and the high quality sound clips that help to select (this is remarkable for someone having to buy online without the means to try the instrument).
I was in contact with Dr. Roeben through email and phone for discussing my requirement and narrowing down to the desired model within my budget. I really appreciate the guidance provided by Corilon with prompt response.
I ordered a Mittenwald viloin (1930) which was delivered in excellent condition, ensured by careful packaging (international shipping is very helpful). My son likes the instrument very much for its sound and handling.
It is a pleasure to deal with a shop of such professionalism. Look forward to check them out for any future requirements. My best wishes to Corilon in serving the world music society at large.
