Smoother, deeper and less 'screechy'
3 out of 3 found the following review helpful

Pros: After using light rosin for the four years or so I've been playing viola (the same rosin I use(d) with the fiddle), I read an article suggesting the use of dark rosin for viola which I had never considered. 3-4 weeks in and it really did seem to make an immediate difference - the tone seemed deeper, smoother even more complex. There definitely seems to be less in the way of screeches I'm almost certain that this is not just in my head as my wife also noticed a bit of a difference. Definitely worth a try - and it's less expensive than experimenting with lots of different strings...

Cons: Nothing bad to say so far...
