Liebenzeller Silver II Violin/Viola 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.
Generates a mellow warm sound, especially in the high notes. Makes fine nuances possible, and the bow glides flexibly even in pianissimo.
Silver II: Mellow and warm, a bit softer (violin, viola)

Ratings & Reviews
The Best I've found
My review is probably a repeat of the preceding review. I am a seasoned violist and have to say I have spent a lot of money trying to find the "perfect" viola rosin. At my first 10 bow strokes I knew I found what I was looking for. This stuff really improved articulation and I still am amazed that there is hardly any residue on my instrument or bow. I definitely recommend it!
I'm using the Gold 11 and it is the best rosin I ever used. Initially I thought, 30 bucks, are you kidding me? But as they say, you get what you pay for. This stuff gets a clear, warm, crisp and big sound out of my viola and doesn't leave much dust residue on the instrument. Every other rosin I've used has left too much sticky dust to clean off. More expensive but I wouldn't use anything else now.
