I was a 'tad' reluctant about getting this rosin at first -- the advertisement came at me like someone selling a used car... But I figured, 'What-the-hey?' So far it does as advertised if not better! So far the tone, resonance, everything about the sound of both my violins (one with Dominant strings the other with Pro Arte) is luscious & delicious! I am really shocked this rosin is drawing such wonderful sound, and a lighter rosin than I am accustomed to. I live in a very arid part of the U.S. and dark rosins usually rule! I do have to reapply more frequently and I hope that in the future this formula is improved so that it stays on the bow longer, but other than that I am pleasantly surprised!

Produces great sound, but chips easily. It also wears away very quickly, you have to keep applying it. On a positive note, it produces great tone quality and is good for both lighter and grittier playing. It lasts a long time, works fabulously with Dominant strings (obviously), and I recommend it.

It’s really a matter of personal preference. If you're a violinist, you're probably going to use a light rosin. “Light” rosin is amber colored and preferred by most violinists. “Dark” rosin is a deep jade color and tends to be preferred by violists and cellists. However, you don’t have to stick to this generalization. Dark rosin is stickier than light rosin, so it is usually a better choice in arid environments. It is also less likely to crack in the winter. If I were a beginner, I would choose a light rosin and see if you like it!

Rosin is usually applied every time a player practices or plays at a concert, but you’d usually only use a few swipes on the bow for each application. Therefore, rosin can last for years, depending on how long you play each day. But with so many different types of rosin, even rosin with decorative designs, why would you want to go for years before buying a new one? At a price point of $5 to $20 per cake of rosin, these make great gifts to encourage the young musician in your life.
