About This Item

The Amber Range, Leatherwood Bespoke Rosin for Double Bass, is the first rosin system of its kind, designed to help bass players find the exact combination of stickiness, grip, traction & lyrical quality to suit their playing needs.

The Amber Range’s five rosin recipe grades range from hard rosins (similar to cello rosins) through recipes that are very soft and sticky. In the images, you will find a helpful guide on how to choose the right recipe for your playing. By varying the recipe grade, bassists can have more control over sound and response characteristics such as grip, traction, lyrical quality, and powder content.

The Amber Range offers 2 rosin recipes per pack, and bass players may choose any recipe along the the chart. This can be 2 cups of the same, or different recipes. Different grades of rosin recipe can be mixed on the bow for further enhancement. For example, a player might first apply the 40% grade as the ‘base recipe’, then occasionally add the 50% for extra grip.

The Amber Range only uses ingredients with low or no evaporative volatility, which means in normal playing circumstances* the rosin will not degrade over time. Normal playing circumstances means there is no exposure to extreme heat, cold or humidity. A ‘normal’ temperature range is considered 5°C - 25°C

How to use The Amber Range

Use the recipe grade chart to choose your desired recipes (2 per pack). They can be the same recipe or different recipes. When you receive your rosin:

  • Carefully separate the walls of the rubber cup from the rosin
  • Lift the rosin slightly out of the cup or peel down sides of cup
  • Keep your fingers touching the sides of the cup, not the rosin
  • Apply with fast and strong bow strokes, with heavy pressure on the rosin.
  • Swipe towards the center of the rosin to avoid chipping
  • When you apply the rosin for the first time, apply quite a lot, about 6 - 8 swipes. This helps the rosin warm up and melt on to the bow.
  • For ongoing use, apply 2 - 4 swipes as required.
  • When first opening the pack the surface may appear with white powder. This is just a result of the rubber lid touching the rosin during shipping and will not affect usage.
  • To melt your rosin back into shape, just sit it in the cup on a flat surface in a warm environment and it will gradually melt back into the shape of the cup. Then allow it to cool and harden before using again

Item Includes

  • Two cups of rosin of your choice, can be same or different
  • One cloth drawstring bag for storage

Can I mix recipes on the bow?

SHAR Answer:

Yes. You might find your ideal recipe is a mix of a harder and softer grade. This is why there are 2 recipes per pack.

Asked On: 06/21/2019

How can I clean my bow hair after using the rosin?

SHAR Answer:

Use a fine-toothed comb or clean toothbrush to comb rosin out of the hair. If it is powdery, use a dry cotton cloth (similar to what you would use to clean the strings) to wipe excess rosin off the bow

Can I melt it back in to shape?

Yes, just sit the cup in a warm place (over 23°C) and it will gradually melt back into shape. Lower grades take longer to form back into shape.

Question by:

  • ANN ARBOR, MI

Asked On: 06/21/2019

Will the rosin melt in my case?

SHAR Answer:

The rubber cup and lid will securely protect and hold your rosin quite tightly, and with normal travel and usage it won’t melt out. The Linen bag will also protect both the case and the cups from any further risks.
