About This Item

Liebenzeller Rosin

Liebenzeller metal rosin has been made in a small village in the German Black Forest for over 40 years. The unique recipe was developed in the workshop of the Viennese violin maker Dr. Thomastik as early as 1922. Made traditionally by hand, Liebenzeller rosin contains delicate bubbles which emphasize the special quality and spirited nature of the rosin. Using pure larch resin with the addition of different metals produces livelier, warmer and brighter sounds than other rosins. This will help produce enhanced tonal volume, greater modulation and carrying power, conveying the individual sound of the instrument without effort, and one-sided tones can be compensated. The bow develops an excellent and even response, with ambient noise minimized.

Choosing the right rosin is critical as it is the rosin that creates the sound while playing. Liebenzeller rosin enhances a string instrument's sound as well as the player's creativity with as little effort as possible. We are proud to reintroduce Liebenzeller rosin to the United States after an extended period when it was unavailable here.

Liebenzeller rosin is available with Gold, Silver, Copper or Meteor Iron added for a range of unique sounds.

Uniquely balanced; the sound is full, round and warm as well as bright and crisp, transparent and light in high notes.

Grades I (hard) to VI (soft): the softer grades make the harshness of an instrument milder and enhance it, the harder grades provide more clarity.

Gold I: uniquely balanced, more distinct (violin)

Asked On: 07/24/2018

My violin is is bright, silvery toned. I've been trying Liebezeller Gold 2. It nicely mellows the sound, but sometimes I feel it is less distinct and giving less projection in brilliant passage work. I'm thinking of trying Gold 1 but afraid it would be too bright. I play a lot of highly technical works, need clarity and the best response I can get. I'm using d'Addario Helicore strings, with a Gold E string by Larsen. Any suggestions? Billie

SHAR Answer:

Hello Billie! If you enjoy the warmth of the Liebenzeller Gold II, but feel it is lacking in clarity, the Liebenzeller Gold I would be a step in the right direction. It won't be as crisp or offer as much brilliance as the Silver formulas, but it will help with a more articulate sound while retaining the warmth you like. If you are wanting to experiment more with your sound, trying new strings or getting a sound post adjustment can shift the tone, resonance, and balance of your instrument. I hope this helps!

Asked On: 11/01/2016

I have been reading good things about the Liebenzeller brand, but I filtered for light rosins since I live in a humid climate. Is this one suitable for me? I've read that light rosin is preferrable for high humidity, but this one looks very dark on the picture.

SHAR Answer:

Hi Jens! This is the lightest grade of Liebenzeller rosin and works great in a humid climate. Take a look at our blog for more information about the Liebenzeller brand. Thanks for your question!
