About This Item

Excellent student-grade dark rosin for violin, viola or cello!

Large round cake on cloth backing, packaged in SHAR rosin box. Dark rosin is more sticky than light rosin, so it is sometimes preferred by players who desire a greater pull from their bow hair and a more rich, textured tone. Dark rosin is also preferred by some who are in colder and more dry regions.

Question by:


Asked On: 06/21/2016

Which kind of rosin would be best for a beginner cellist? Light or Dark?

SHAR Answer:

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 cellist, I would choose a dark rosin and see if you like it!
