Description

Premier quality hand made rosin.

The finest rosin money can buy. Made in Germany using pure Larch resin with added metals, this rosin allows instruments to sound warmer, brighter and more lively. Use sparingly. The best results will be obtained when used on new, unrosined hair.

Another delighted user.
8 out of 9 found the following review helpful

Pros: Instant gratification. Improvement in sound noticed on first application. Bow had firmer grip on string.

Cons: Nothing that I can think of.

Other: Other reviewers mention cost. If that of the bow is measured in hundreds and the violin in thousands, the cost of rosin to get a better sound seems unimportant.

sadly, a waste of money
3 out of 3 found the following review helpful

Pros: not a lot really :-( (gold no.4 cello)

Cons: rather too much I'm afraid... box is large compared to the size of the rosin sound is very muffled and no power to it at all compared to previous rosins used very expensive seems very hard, takes a lot of effort to get it on the bow and wears off very quickly

Very underwhelmed considering the price.
5 out of 7 found the following review helpful

Pros: Unfortunately not much.

Cons: Doesn't give much definition to the sound. Someone else mentioned the over sized box it comes in. I found it too large as well.

Other: I tried this out of interest. Been using it a month. Usually use Laubach Gold rosin (about £8 cheaper) and been very happy with that. I recently bought a new bow and was interested to try out other rosins. If you think the extra cost is reflected in the quality, I really didn't find this to be the case. Sound is less focused and more waffly. I will be ordering another Laubach and seeing if anyone wants to give me a good price on 'part worn' Larica ;)

Wow
2 out of 2 found the following review helpful

Pros: I can't believe I was soldiering on with scratchy Hidersine for so long, this rosin is so smooth yet powerful that it feels like I've just had a rehair and possibly a new instrument. Well worth the investment.

Cons: None.

I will never buy cheap rosin again!
1 out of 1 found the following review helpful

Pros: Enables much smoother, richer sound.

Cons: The box doesn't fit in my 'cello case. Could be smaller and still get rosin inside.

absolutely fantastic rosin!
2 out of 3 found the following review helpful

Pros: This rosin is simply brilliant and does wonders to the sound of my violin! It may seem expensive but, in my opinion it is worth every penny and it will last for ages as you don't need to apply very much to the bow at all!

Cons: As previously mentioned, the box is, perhaps, a bit on the big side!

Other: I liked this rosin so much that I also bought the viola one which is great too!

Good quality rosin for cello

Pros: Very happy with this rosin, which I bought following the recommendation from Julian Ogilvie in the recent London Cello Society newsletter. As per Julian's recommendation, I use it for my cello bow (not violin or viola), and it does seem to help the bow to move more smoothly across the strings than my old rosin did.

Cons: Quite expensive, but I am hoping it will last me many years.
