About This Item

Developed by Australian violinist and pedagogue, Andrew Baker, with a simple goal in mind: Create rosin that allows players to be their best. The process was anything but simple, and involved study, exploration, discovery, and endless testing. 
The Original Recipes
Leatherwood Rosin is formulated differently for each instrument, violin, viola, and cello, according to the physical characteristics of each. In addition, there are two recipes available for each: Crisp and Supple, which describe sound and feel of the rosin:
- Crisp: Emphasizes a sforzando attack, clear articulation, defined sautille bowing, and a precise and resonant sound
- Supple: Rounder attack, seamless bow changes, and a lush, warm sound. 
Bespoke Blends
Since the crisp and supple formulas became available, Andrew has customized blends of the two formulas for individual requests. The most popular mixtures are now readily available to SHAR customers in 50/50 supple/crisp blends for each instruments, as well as 75/25 in 75%-supple or 75%-crisp blends.
Baroque Recipes

For players who use gut strings or play on baroque instruments, consider the Leatherwood Bespoke Baroque Rosin Recipes.
Note: The color, grain, and specie of wood may vary slightly from the image shown.

Hello! What is the difference between the LBR1 rosin and the VNCVNS rosins?

SHAR Answer:

Hello Christine! This rosin is a 100% crisp formula, while the VNCVNS rosins are bespoke blends. You can choose what percentage of crisp vs supple you want in your sound. Let us know if you have any other questions!

Asked On: 10/21/2019

What are the difference between the percentage of crispness?

SHAR Answer:

Hello Eddie! The percentages listed for this Bespoke rosin indicate the Crisp/Supple blend. If you prefer a more crisp, articulate sound, you would want a higher Crisp percentage in your rosin. If you prefer a smoother, warmer sound, you would want a higher Supple percentage. Offering different ratios of the Crisp and Supple blends helps players find a rosin that best fits their needs. Let us know if you have any other questions!

Asked On: 06/19/2018

Is this low dust rosin?

SHAR Answer:

Hi Patricia! All rosins will produce dust if you over-rosin your bow, but generally the stickier the rosin, the less you need to use and the less dust goes airborne. This rosin is great choice if you're looking to reduce dust! If you have any additional questions, feel free to contact us directly at 1-800-248-7427.
