REVIEW VIDEOS

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.
 
Baroque Recipes

The best

Tried them all, as a professional cellist with frequent solo and principal responsibilities, this has been by far the most successful rosin for every type of playing. Indispensable.

Best Rosin Iíve Used

Iím a crusty, old, hardened, professional cellist, and in the 60 years Iíve been playing this is the best rosin Iíve found. But do consider the source. On my old cello I play on Pirastro Oliv and Eudoxa strings (and a plutonium A-string)óand on my 20-year-old instrument I have metal strings at the moment. I play on nice bows. (I also have a Baroque cello and a couple of violas da gamba, on which I use Leatherwood Baroque rosin.) What I love about this rosinóI prefer the ìSuppleî formulationóis that it gloms on to the string but does not (Iím looking at you, Andrea) stop the string from vibrating. Yes, itís great for the cellistís bag oí tricksówhatever Piatti or Gr¸tzmacher may fling your wayóbut it shines in the basic currency of what it means to play the cello: it helps d r a w a beautiful tone out of the instrument, frog to tip. Iíve tried most of the favored rosins over the years, and Leatherwood works best for me.

decent rosin, not my first choice, won't buy again

This is good rosin but not as special as they want you to believe or as the price would make you hope. I feel it performs a little better than most of the traditional names selling in the $10 and under range, but not as well as the Melos dark or the Andrea
Solo and A Piacere rosins which are far and away my preferred choices. I won't buy it again and can't recommend it given the price and the expectation.
