Liebenzeller 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.

Uniquely balanced; the sound is full, round and warm as well as bright and crisp, transparent and light in high notes.

Grades I (hard) to VI (soft): the softer grades make the harshness of an instrument milder and enhance it, the harder grades provide more clarity.

Gold II: uniquely balanced, a bit more mellow (violin, viola)

Best Rosin

This rosin is incredible and worth the price. I have used for many years and it constantly works like a charm. Provides a warm and rich resonant sound on my 19th century violin.

I love the Liebenzeller Gold

It is exactly what I needed. It creates an even tone that's mellow but I can still dig in for Scottish cuts. I don't have to work as hard to get the tone I want.


I honestly found this rosin quite disappointing. Perhaps the original recipe warranted the cult following that it has. Having used the far less expensive Motrya Gold for many years, I find it superior. As a Thomastik-Infeld artist, I'm now using a combination of their Pi and Vision rosins (for violin and viola respectively) and am extremely pleased. As for this Liebenzeller, after just a handful of swipes it's now sitting in a drawer. Save your $30 IMO.

The best rosin

I bought this rosin and believe it or not.
this is the best rosin around the world.
just try it!!!!!

Hardly works

Iím sure I used this years ago but for some reason it was fine for a week, or so but as it gradually supplanted the rosin that was on my bow, getting a sound out started to become work. I retired it and used some of the Gold IV that I use on my cello.
Back in business using IV rather than II. Iím sure I used it in the past with success but this hardly got a squeak out of my bow once the old rosin wore off. (It takes about a week of mild practice for the new rosin to replace whatís on the bow)
