Start with a Set Rosin Recipe for Violin Viola or Cello

Our two set recipefor violin viola and cello offer very distinct sound and response characteristics:

CRISP:

A decisive attack, firm traction and crisp sautille; this recipe creates an undeniably forthright sound through a glassier texture.

The crisp blend often works well with an instrument with lots of resonance but is a little 'woolly' in sound, offering it greater clarity and articulation.
Crisp also assists bows or techniques that struggle to achieve a clear and articulate spiccato or sautille.
Crisp can also assist small student or cheap instruments, by enhancing their sound to be brighter and sometimes louder; and beginning students find it easier to articulate with crisp.

Here's what our clients think:

“A big sound compared to other rosins- more dramatic! that's your Carmen fantasy rosin!"
"It's giving my violin more sound. Quite attacky, plenty of crispness, very good grip!"
“It grips the string better! I didn't have to have so much control over the bow"
“It has more of a glassy texture, a gutsy sound. There's more control with this one"
“It has a very different connection to the string than the usual rosin. Velvety, gliding, but clearly connecting. It's smooth across string, there's no feeling of 'pot holes' or grittiness. - violist
“The best so - makes it way easier to play brightly"

SUPPLE:

A warm and softer sound,consistent traction that feels velvety and rich; this recipe maintains a reliably sharp attack on the string.

The supple blend can help generate a more powerful and focused sound from a softer and lighter bow with less 'bite'.
Supple can also enhance the sounds of a deep / warm sounding instrument by making it sound more resonant.
Supple can also soften an instrument which is too loud, bright or one-dimensional in sound.

Here's what our clients think:

"It has more depth, integrity, more sonorous, more body."
"Gentle. Entices me to play more Mozarty! "
“It feels smoother than my original rosin. Subtle. I like it a lot."
“It's good for sustained long bows, nice for soft playing"
"Warm, yet clear! Much easier to control tone and dynamics!"
“Gives the softer and lighter bow more articulation and focus!"
