The best rosin I have ever used
1 out of 1 found the following review helpful

Pros: Simply the best rosin I have ever used. Gives the bow loads of bite, without leaving a sticky residue over the strings. Very little rosin needed on the bow.

Cons: Nothing.

Smooth and light
1 out of 1 found the following review helpful

Pros: A lovely neat package of rosin, it's a beautiful colour when you unwrap it from its protective cloth. That's irrelevant to the sound of course, and moving from Hidersine 3V rosin I found a subtle but significant difference. The bow grip feels smoother, like the rosin's made of smaller bits, and my control of tone through the interaction of hair and string is just that bit easier.

Cons: Because it's not in a tin, you have to be very careful with it to avoid damage to the rosin block which has a few cracks and crumbles around the edges already. I will have to get something solid to keep it in, well-padded, to avoid shattering it by accident.

Other: I also use Melos rosin for my bass viola da gamba, and I was delighted to find that the modern violin rosin is of equal quality, bringing much the same change in playing characteristics as when I changed viol rosin.

Not for me sadly
2 out of 3 found the following review helpful

Pros: Not a lot however it does come in a nice bag...

Cons: I really feel rather the odd one out here but my experience so far with this stuff is not good. It seems to have the general appearance of Korean Best without the staying power of A B yet I need to apply a lot of it to get it to stay on the bow. I know everyone seems to love this Rosin but sadly it's not for me.
