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.

Completely Satisfied!!! Well worth the price!

I just received my Leatherwood Bespoke Blended Violin Rosin and I absolutely love it! I was a bit skeptical on the price... after all, who buys $80+ rosin?! Nevertheless, I decided to give it a try and I can now say it is well worth the money. As soon as I started using it, I noticed a difference in my tone, and, strangely enough, my projection -especially on my E string. The overall tone is very smooth and rich. I have been using Hill Rosin for 5+ years now, and I can say with certainty, I will never go back. I will be buying this product again!
