Lived up to my expectations

Pros: I really like this rosin which was recommended by a colleague. As others have said, it is very smooth and makes it easy to play a beautiful legato. Not quite as grippy as some, but you can't have everything!

Cons: None

Beautiful

Pros: Daughter playing violin in County Youth Orchestra, and recently changed to Pirazzi strings. Salchow rosin is her preferred choice as she feels it helps create a cleaner sound and the perfect friction between bow and strings.

Cons: Price is steep.

Other: Daughter doesn't like String Zone only giving the option of 'beginner' until she passes Grade 8 !!

I like it very much.

Pros: Holds bow on string really well without the scratch of other makes I've used - good tone.

Cons: Lack of box is slightly annoying, but my previous one (different make) didn't have one so I'm used to being careful.

Works as rosin should

Pros: It seems to bed in more quickly than my rather aged block of Hidersine, suggesting it is rather softer, but so far I haven't had to rosin the bow more than before, so it seems to stick to the hair well enough. I bought it to go with a new bow, so it's hard to tell whether it made any significant difference to the bow's performance, but it certainly doesn't detract from it.

Cons: It isn't in a box, but comes in wrapped in a thick cloth with a tie which works, but is a bit more fiddly to do up than a box would be.

Beautiful product

Pros: It's a quality product - only needs a couple of strokes and it's perfect. Gorgeous velvet wrapping, which fits well with old violin.

Cons: Chips quite easily. This is a darker rosin than the previous 'light' Salchow rosin.

Dark & rich

Pros: The dark cello rosin has a lovely colour, feels rich and dark. You don't need a lot.

Cons: Using a little bit more made my new strings very scratchy - was hard to get the balance right - but it may be my bow.

Good rosin, not cheap!

Pros: Had the light William Salchow rosin last time, so thought I would try the dark one this time. Its fine, but I can't say I've noticed much difference.

Cons: Its quite expensive
