A Premium rosin made by Cremona in America. This rosin provides a powerful, yet sensitive sound for the soloist. It enables maximized projection and extra clear bow articulation.

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.

Very powerful rosin.

Pros: Amazing rosin to bring life to difficult strings. It adds a lot of volume to the sound.

Cons: It can easily become "too much". In the G string in particular, using Andrea Solo feels like stirring mud.

Other: I used (and use) Bernardel but it fell a little short with some cranky strings. Andrea Solo woke up those strings and added loudness to the whole set. Use sparingly and probably mix with others.

Second Order.

Pros: My second order for this as I am standardizing on Andrea for synthetic strings.

Cons: No cons.

Other: I like the plastic case but the instrument would be better protected with an additional cloth bag.

Prefer with darker sounding cello.

Pros: Nice sturdy plastic case. Easy to open and close. Easy to apply.

Cons: Size is a bit small for the price.

Other: Works well with my darker sounding cello with (Larsen/Spirocore strings), also used on another brighter cello (Jargar/Spirocore strings) didn't like it as much, overall good rosin.

By far the rosin I have ever used.

Pros: Andrea rosin is wonderful. I shall never want to use any other. My bow now clings to the strings and yet isn't sticky in any way. It is also more responsive and allows greater freedom.

Cons: The fact that my previous Andrea rosin, which had been a present from a friend, smashed into many pieces when I dropped it on the floor.

Pros: Clearness of attack.

Cons: None

Other: I've never been a fan of rosin as such, perhaps once a week, but with this rosin I have found that I want to use it.
