Leatherwood Bespoke Cello Rosin
This rosin was developed and made in Australia by a
professional violin player.
Our first obviousimpression on the new Leatherwood
Bespoke Cello Rosin is, "Geez, $67 for rosin,
are you kidding?" Forget
it! One also quickly notices that it doesn't look
or feel like any rosin that they've seen before.
The rosin is longer (3.75") and is molded into a nice
wooden "trough" with which you nicely fit your
cello bow into and apply it vigorously up and down.
The rosin itself comes in two grades: "Supple" or
Which one to get? There are a
couple of factors to help you decide: One, is your
climate. If you live in a hot, humid climate, you
might be better to get the "crisp". the
"crisp" is slightly
harder and with the humidity will grab fine. On the
hand, say that it's winter: Cold and dry weather.
"supple" will work nicely and in the dryer condition,
help your bow hair grab a little better. One thing
for sure, this in not your "old, cello teacher's
Bernadel rosin!" It's made on a very high level of
consistency and to quote one of our long-time
professional customers, "it grabs well, but helps the
cello sounds warmer and fuller". Perhaps, the rosin helps pull
more sound out, but we can see the quality just by
holding in our hands.
The leather wrap is
a nice touch. This rosin is expensive (for rosin),
but it's worth it and with the leather wrap around, it
will protect it for years to come.
