Let us create your own, personalised rosin recipe

  "I wanted to express my admiration and complete confidence in the quality of Leatherwood Bespoke Rosin. It’s a wonderful hand-made product that I’ve used in chamber, orchestral, and solo settings. I have to say it is very impressive! I am really happy to have found a rosin that is reliable, with minimal dust, and makes legato and spiccato playing most enjoyable." -  DANIEL LELCHUK - ASSISTANT PRINCIPAL CELLO, LOUISIANA PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA

By consulting with you, we can vary or enhance certain characteristics of your bespoke rosin recipe:

Attack - increase or decrease the strength of the initial grab on the string

Traction - increase or decrease the amount of grip in sustained bowing

Texture - vary the feel of the rosin on the string

Clarity - enhance or soften the clarity of articulation in spiccato and sautille bowings.

These results are often made through making a blend of our Supple and Crisp recipes, for example:

75% crisp - "This bespoke recipe is the perfect blend for the soloist. It focuses on power, projection and clarity, with a slightly thicker texture that will highlight warm resonances."

75% supple - "If you love the warmth and depth of the supple blend, this recipe gives you added clarity and bite to the thicker texture

5050 - "A perfect mix of both supple and crisp recipes, this rosin recipe will have a balanced texture and sound palette"

These blends are easy to decide upon if you have tried both supple and crisp (stockists keep testers in store for trials and consultation!).

Or, we can also make adjustments to the strength of the initial attack or 'grab' on the string, the amount of surface noise, or the traction (the stickiness of sustained bowing) if you have strings of unique make. 

We have also made a range of bespoke blends for specific instruments such as Er-hu, Bluegrass and folk fiddle, 5-7 string electric instruments, Arpeggione, Indian Carnatic music. If you have specialised requirements, contact us here.
