Dark olive colour, relatively soft, OLIV-EVAH gives an excellent grip with low dust. Works perfectly with gut and synthetic strings.

Which Rosin should I use?

High quality rosin allows for perfect bowing without scratchy sounds, especially if only a thin layer of rosin is applied. The general rule is:

  • violinists and violists use a harder, dryer rosin

  • cellists use a medium strong rosin

  • bassists a softer rosin 

 

Another important aspect for choosing the right rosin is the core material of the string that are being used:

  • steel strings are easier played if you use a hard, dry rosin

  • for synthetic, gut and gut wound strings use a softer rosin

Moreover, experienced players prefer softer rosin when playing in a studio and harder rosin in a concert hall. Hard rosin works best in tropical climates while soft rosin is good for cold climates.


We develop our own specific rosin and design it according the technical requirements of our different string lines. That is also the reason why we name our rosin after the brand names of our violin and viola string lines.

 

 

Packaging

Each cake of rosin is glued onto a soft cloth which then is attached to a hard plastic grip. This prevents the fingers of the musician to get exposed to rosin dust and also makes it easier to apply the rosin.
