Enhance the sound of open gut strings
Specially formulated for gut strings, the gentle but clean attack and smoother traction allows the string to resonate freely with maximum clarity. Baroque rosin makes a bright, clear sound with a feeling that the bow is quicker on the string and makes it easier to play fast with more clarity. The smoother traction allows the string to be played with more intensity without distortion and also reduce the ‘squeak’ often encountered with using modern rosins on gut.
Leatherwood Rosin's baroque instrument blends are:
Baroque Violin / treble viol
Baroque Viola / tenor viol / viola d'amore
Baroque cello / bass viol
With a baroque bespoke blend, the initial attack can be increased, and the traction thickened (made stickier) for use on thicker strings.
