Corilon webpage is one of the best around. I think the sound sample is also very helpful. Customer service was good and precise.
As a side note re. sound samples - instead of showing off the violinist skills, I rather prefer a slow chromatic scale to explore better the balance between strings on higher positions and exploring better the lower registers
