Lapella rosin was first introduced in Germany in the late 19th century, quickly gaining a broad following among leading European violinists. The reason was its unmatched quality, due to careful selection of the finest raw materials and meticulous production processes. In the 1920s, famed Leipzig violinist and teacher Hans Sitt consulted with the manufacturer to further refine the formulation, focusing on playability and applicability. This further boosted the reputation of Lapella rosin, expanding its market worldwide.
World War II and Soviet suppression afterward brought Lapella to a standstill. It wasnt until the beginning of the new Millennium that the original firm once again breathed life into Lapella, recovering archived documents, formulas, and processes. Today, with the advent of modern manufacturing techniques and availability of the finest materials, Lapella rosin has been reborn, better than ever. Still made using traditional handcrafting methods, and with the addition of scientific knowledge gained during decades of dormancy, Lapella rosin is ready for serious violinists, violists, and cellists everywhere.
Todays Lapella Gold Rosin No. 20 is the most advanced formula yet. The addition of real gold in the production process allows the cooking of ingredients to occur at far lower temperatures, preserving the natural characteristics of the key ingredients.
To apply Lapella rosin for the first time, please clean your bow using a soft, clean, dry cloth. Real silk is the best material for the purpose, and cotton is also effective. Apply Lapella No. 20 by stroking the full length of the bow hairs several times. It is best not to over-apply rosin since this practice will reduce desired tonal characteristics. We recommend you first try a few strokes, test by playing, then repeat as necessary. The thick microfiber cloth, included with your cake of Lapella rosin, can be used to remove rosin dust that may have settled on the surfaces of your instrument.
