Let us create your own, personalised rosin recipe
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.
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.

“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.”
Bespoke Blends are not just about personalising the recipe.
There are many facets of the rosin we can personalise for you, such as the size and shape, or even having your name engraved in the rosin! Watch this video for more information.
