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.

Could take some getting used to
1 out of 1 found the following review helpful

Pros: Nice pouch to protect it. Really smells like tree resin, and looks good too with the pine tree logo showing through from the cloth. Despite being a light rosin it provides plenty of grip without too many applications, and not much dust.

Cons: More expensive than some, but rosin should last a long time....

Other: This was a bit of a change, having used a dark rosin (AB I think) for many years. Needed some time to 'work out' the old rosin from the bow (I wasn't going to attempt to wash the hair, and a re-hair was not imminent) but after a week or two of moderate playing it had settled in. Took a little while to get used to the different grip, but now very happy with it.
