Description

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 Good

Pros: Comparing to my old one, sound is amazing

Cons: There is nothing to not like

Other: According to this website: http://www.warchal.com/the_big_rosin_test.html Andrea Rosin is the best rosin. Well I'm not professional enough to say but its definitely better than my old one which was very rubbish.

I'm happy with it.

Pros: Very soft and sticky, as i like, but in a very good way. I had tried other soft rosins in the past but they took away some definition and high frequencies from sound. The Solo, instead, is quite satisfying for my typical usage (folk music, where violin has to have a lot of projection, volume, and authority).

Cons: Nothing, for now.

Other: I had read some reviews where some people talked about the plastic box of this rosin, in a negative way. Instead, i have nothing negative to say about it.

Not for the faint hearted.

Pros: Very grippy - essential for the "Incredihair" artificial hair I use (which lasts for ever!)

Cons: You do need to get the balance just right between too much and too little rosin.

Pros: easy to apply - no need to score the surface. very little dust. grips the string without scratchy or rasping noises. excellent choice!

Cons: The cost - but well worth it considering how long it will last

Other: Bought this rosin as it was recommended buy a respected luthier. have tried several other rosins of varying price - this one definitely the best. Well-packaged too- easy to open and use- no fiddly bits of cloth!

Strong recommendation!
1 out of 2 found the following review helpful

Pros: It is comfortable to use. I used to have a rosin that was on a cloth and it came apart later which I had to grab the rosin to use - and it made my fingers sticky after. Also, my bow articulation got clearer. amazing how rosins can change the sound.

Cons: nothing yet

expensive but good!

Pros: nice solid plastic casing protects the rosin well. It's a strong rosin, so use sparingly!

Cons: it is quite a dusty rosin, for the size, it's bloomin' expensive!

Pros: maintained pitch after two days - great tone really suit my 1930 violin

Cons: Didn't like the gold plated E string that I got with the last set. Got whistling sound from it. The steeel string i got with this set is not a problem.
