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.

Generates a mellow warm sound, especially in the high notes. Makes fine nuances possible, and the bow glides flexibly even in pianissimo.

Silver I: Mellow and warm, more distinct (violin)

what would be best?

So I've been using the Meteor I for years, and while I do like it, I don't think it's the best for my violin. My violin has a very bright and powerful sound, and it can be a bit too bright sometimes, specially when I'm high up on the E string. I was reading about the cooper and the silver rosins, but I don't know which one would be best for me. I want a warmer, smoother, more rounded sound. Any suggestions??


This is the best of the Liebenzeller series. Both gold's are too sticky, creating a scratchy sound. Bouncing the bow creates an unpleasant noise. Even the meteor version is a tad bit scratchy. Somewhere in between Gold and Silver. Silver I is perfect.
Silver I creates a very, very smooth sound. Use a full bow, and it glides over the strings. Easy bounces. Elaborate phrasing. The Andrea Solo's are even worse for clear tone production. Scratchy power.
