Hidersine DB-series of Double Bass rosins are a suite of three respected formulations specifically for double bass.
With a number of different blends of waxes to create the optimum rosin for three temperate climates, bass players are able to find the perfect recipe for their personal situation.
DB2 sits in the middle of the three formulas, rated as medium-soft, therefore making it suitable for use - and storage - in temperate climates. Double Bass rosin’s requirements for tractive flexibility is optimised in this formula and is the most widely used of the three variants.
This Hidersine Rosin is made in England in the same way as always: An Artisanal process of hand-mixing and hand-pouring.

During late 1890, whilst running his own business in London, Francis Hilder also chose to dedicate more of his time to studying the Double Bass, and subsequently developed and manufactured his own Double Bass Rosin. This new Hider rosin was designed to be an improvement on the predominantly German rosins available at the time. Francis initially invented 3 types of Double bass rosin: No.1 – For use in cold temperatures; No.2 – For use in medium temperatures; No.3 – For use in warm temperatures.
This newly developed range of double bass rosin was adopted by many professional players of the day, and the product’s acclaim soon led to the creation of ‘F.Hider’s Improved Violin Resin’.
In the late 1980s when W.E.Hill & Sons closed ‘Havensfield’, the Hidersine Company was approached to continue the manufacture of the famous Hill light and dark rosins, keeping true to the centuries-old recipe. With the Hill family’s violin-making featuring in the 17 th century diary of Samuel Pepys, it was imperative to ensure the continued availability of Hill rosin for the thousands of musicians across the globe that chose it to adorn the finest bow hair.
In more recent years, The Hidersine Company has used its considerable experience to source and refine many bowed instrument accessories such as the highly regarded range of Brazilwood, Pernambuco and Carbon Fibre bows, the Oxbury and Maesbury shoulder rests, and a range of class-leading protective cases.
