Terrific customer experience, we had a lot of trouble with a package and its arrival due to constraints on UK postal offices (we made a purchase from outside the UK) but Cecile from Cardiff Violins kept a regular and helpful communication channel opened and was  responsible for the delivery to finally arrive to us - thank you, fantastic customer focus!

... In fact, of course, all that is of no importance if the instrument does not do what I as a player want. It has a huge sound, open and free, with the nasal edge and the nutty brown sound of an old Italian instrument. This is the best violin, by any maker, that I have played in a long time.

I'm just writing to let you know how much I love my new Coruss bow from Cardiff Violins. The bow arrived two days ago via DHL, and I'm truly very impressed with the quality and playing characteristics! Thank you so much for making these beautiful vegan-based tools possible for us musicians. Cheers, and best wishes!

I am delighted with my purchase. Lucia looks and sounds amazing. What a beautiful tone and depth of sound. I'm absolutely thrilled. The bow, I have to say, is beyond my expectations. Mark has chosen a wonderfully weighted bow that is a joy to hold and use. I look forward to my practice so much more now. I can only thank you both again for the thought and effort you put in on my behalf.  I had absolute confidence in my purchase, that I could only be delighted. I will definitely be returning as a customer at some point.

I have been using Coruss hair for quite some time now. Quite simply, I wouldn't go back to normal hair. Of prime importance to me is sound, clarity and tone; Coruss achieves what I want. The fact it lasts so much longer is merely a pleasant bonus!

I just wanted to give you an update on my new bow! I've been playing with it for about a week. It's great! I'm really getting used to it now. At first, it felt very different indeed, and I wasn't sure if I'd get used to it, but then after putting enough rosin on and playing for a few days I really like it! I also got a professional cellist to test it out for me and he gave it a big thumbs up and said it was well worth the money! So I'm delighted that I now have a great cruelty-free bow!!

The bow and rosin arrived today.

I was curious to see how the bow would perform. So, I gave it a brief try out… and… I must tell you that this bow performs far beyond my expectations. Just fantastic! It brings the best out of my instrument.

Thank you (and your daughter) for your assistance in helping me choose the perfect bow.

With kind regards

The rosin works beautifully, it was just what I was hoping for. The regular kind I had bought never stayed on the bow for longer than 10-15 minutes, whereas Coruss rosin stays on so well! Now when I play it actually feels easier and makes it more enjoyable to practice.
