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.

Not Crisp…

I have used this product for one month and it is not crisp at all. I spoke with a representative at Shar and was informed that the brand is reforming the product. I don’t know what this means for the rosin recipe but this “new” rosin does not allow my bow to have a crisp or immediate articulation of the string. With a rosin this expensive, one would expect it to be as advertised. The amber color is quite light and not at all what I expected. If you are looking for a quality rosin with more bite, look elsewhere because once you spend the money, there is no returning the product due to Shar’s return policy.
I have tried this rosin from a friend and colleague with the Chicago Symphony and it was very nice but the one I bought from Shar must not be the same blend; it is not the same thing even though it is advertised as the original crisp recipe. Save your money if you want crisp. Perhaps, I may try a cello rosin instead.
