Good investment.

Pros: Very good product. Clearly the result of many years development. Expensive, but does improve the sound of my cello.

Cons: Pity it doesn't come in a tin or box.

Almost like an old, and highly valued, friend.

Pros: This rosin is similar to the rosin I used many years ago when quite young. (I'm an adult returner). It is soft in the block, makes very little dust and produces subtly beautiful tones. It is difficult to be objective about it but it has that extra quality that makes bowing much easier and tone production much better. This will be my choice of rosin from now on.

Cons: None

Rosin for my Baroque Cello

Pros: Really grippy but feels smooth at the same time. I've tried all sorts including the Salchow dark, but the light one suits my gut strings best.

Cons: None

Smooth lovely light to medium rosin

Pros: Smooth and non-dusty but good grip and only need to use sparingly. First tried on bows supplied as part of SZ’s bow approval scheme and wanted to continue using the same rosin on the bow I bought (Coda Joule violin bow). Light but good trip on my loud fiddle with steel strings and also on my fine violin with synthetic core strings.

Cons: Nothing so far.

This is classy rosin, highly recommended

Pros: This has just enough stickiness to give a skid-free stroke and imparts virtually no dust so doesn’t make me cough. Additionally it seems to me to enrich the fiddle’s tone. I’ve recommended it to my fiddler friends.

Cons: High price - on reflection worth it!

A really clean effective rosin.

Pros: Almost dust free. A very effective rosin.
