Receive 2 different rosin recipes in each pack

Choose two recipes from our range of recipe grades (see recipe chart below). From hard and crisp rosins to soft and sticky rosins, our recipes suit all playing styles and conditions.

These recipes do not dry out like other rosins and one recipe would last 1-2 years with intensive playing. You can also mix them on the bow for a more customised result.

FAQ

Use the recipe grade chart (above) to choose your desired recipes (2 per pack). They can be the same recipe or different recipes. When you receive your rosin:

    - Carefully separate the walls of the rubber cup from the rosin

    - Lift the rosin slightly out of the cup or peel down sides of cup

    - Keep your fingers touching the sides of the cup, not the rosin

    - Apply with fast and strong bow strokes, with heavy pressure on the rosin.

    - Swipe towards the centre of the rosin to avoid chipping

    - For best use, apply 2 - 5 swipes as required.

    - To melt your rosin back into shape, just sit it in the cup on a flat surface in a warm environment or window sill and it will gradually melt back into the shape of the cup. Then allow it to cool and harden before using again

A recent trial group of professional bass players made the following general comparisons:

    -35% was similar to Nymans

    -45% was similar to Pops

    -50% was similar to Oak

Please keep in mind that these comparisons have not been decided through any formal trial or research, and are just the collective opinion of a small group of bass players on one particular day. This group were indoors with an ambient temperature of about 23°C. All our recipes will feel different depending on the climate (temperature) they are tried in.

The higher the percentage the softer the rosin. Firstly work out what type of playing context you want the recipe for, then pick a higher grade if you are in a colder or dryer climate, or a lower grade if you are in a hotter or more humid climate. For example. In Singapore or Mexico, the 55% - 60% might be too soft in those hot climates, and these rosins may be more like a liquid, so a 40-45% recipe would be more ideal here. However in Scandinavia (very cold and dry climates) the 55% - 60% will be harder and not as soft, therefore ideal.

The rubber cup and lid will securely protect and hold your rosin quite tightly, and with normal travel and usage it won’t melt out. The Linen bag will also protect both the case and the cups from any further risks.

Yes, just sit the cup in a warm place (over 23°C) and it will gradually melt back into shape. Lower grades take longer to form back into shape.

The rosin ingredients we are use are derived from pure pine resin. They are safe for the bow. The higher the grade, the less powder rosin included.

Use a fine toothed comb or clean toothbrush to comb rosin out of the hair. If it is powdery, use a dry cotton cloth (similar to what you would use to clean the strings) to wipe excess rosin off the bow

Yes. You might find your ideal recipe is a mix of a harder and softer grade. This is why we provide 2 recipes per pack.

So far so good

I’m still working out which of the three cakes i have (40,50, 60%) to use when. I’m pleased with all three. I still prefer round cakes to rectangular as it’s easier to avoid the divot. I’ve recommended you rosin to several colleagues.

Great rosin!

I decided to try your product after meeting you at the ISB convention. I purchased the 35, 45, and 55. I found them perfectly adapted to my every playing situation (99% classical). With my recent purchase of 40 and 50, I have almost infinite flexibility in my rosin choices. Well done, my friend! Bass wishes, Ray

Best Rosin I Have Ever Used

I am extremely pleased with the sound quality, ease of attack and lack of buildup. I would recommend it highly to any colleague or student.

Excellent sound from my usual bass

I've never heared such rich and brilliant sound from my usual contrabass through my all musical life. Thanks Andrew!
