Description

Formerly named 'Tartini Green' rosin made by 'Cremona in America.'

A Piacere has the exact same formula as the Tartini GREEN, which provides effortless bow control with even sound production.

Starting in spring 2020, Cremona in America will be replacing the name ANDREA with CECILIA. There is no change in the rosin formulas whatsoever.

Please note this rosin is now rebranded as Cecilia but is otherwise unchanged in its formulation.

Best cello rosin I've tried so far
7 out of 7 found the following review helpful

Pros: The case means you don't get your fingers stuck up with Rosin. Less scratchy than the cheaper rosins which means you can get better articulation. I'd buy this again

Cons: Creates more dust than my previous rosin.

Definitely the best rosin I have used.
1 out of 1 found the following review helpful

Pros: Having tried several different rosins, this is the nicest to use. You don't need much, it stays on the bow hair rather than caking onto the strings and gives a good clear sound without harshness. My viola has a strong tone anyway, and some rosins make too harsh a sound on it. I use Eva Pirazzi strings.

Cons: Nothing. Even the price is not a deterrent when you need so much less of it!

Rosin not for me me.
1 out of 1 found the following review helpful

Pros: An okay rosin, but the higher tones are reduced, which I miss. Gone back to Dominant rosin with Dominant strings, the best combination for me. I have tried quite a few rosins over the years.

Cons: Too pricey. Higher overtones are clipped .

A cheap way to enhance your instrument.
1 out of 1 found the following review helpful

Pros: Best rosin I have tried by far. A sweeter, solid sound produced with less effort. I have used many different rosins ranging from £5 - £15, and not thought any made much difference until this one. So good that intend to buy the solo version also.

Cons: Expensive, but hey, it lasts for ages and cheaper than a new bow. Lots of dust produced, but again... Who cares?
