Quality rosin really does make a difference
3 out of 3 found the following review helpful

Pros: I use this on Evah Pirazzi strings. The bow hair grips well and pulls out a fantastic tone. I had wondered whether the upgrade from my previous student quality rosin would make any difference - a few minutes' playing and all doubts were removed. It has a wonderful piney smell too!

Cons: There's nothing I don't like about this rosin - except its cardboard box. It would have been nice to have a tin.

Possibly an unfortunate sample

Pros: An effective rosin for use with gut strings. No undue residue on the strings after playing.

Cons: The rosin split in half on initial application. The flimsy cardboard box.

Other: Two pieces saves money - I have two gut strung instruments. Quite a long job to anoint a new bow satisfactorily.

A good, sticky rosin to enhance power.

Pros: It enhances the power of the strings - if you need more power, this is for you!

Cons: I have a viola which has a good, immediately strong sound. I love the Eva Pirazzi strings, and so decided to treat myself to the matching rosin. However, I found that, on my instrument, it was a little too "sticky" and the tone became too brash, so I reverted back to my ordinary Pirastro rosin.

Best Rosin

Pros: Best Rosin I have used. Brilliant on Evahs and Oliv. Transforms the sound. Good also on gut (e.g.Eudoxa) and Vision Solos.

Cons: A bit dear, but Rosins last forever.

good buy

Pros: good rich sound but don't use too much as gets grainy

Cons: gets grainy if use too much - so can be quite sparing
