Information about rosin

Information about rosin

Production and Origin of rosin:

Rosin is made from balsamic natural resin, usually of the tree species pine, fir, pine, larch and spruce.
The name "rosin" is from the ancient Greek city "colophon".

Differences and qualities:

Rosin is produced in different grades. Usually a dark rosin is slightly harder than a light rosin and preferable at higher room temperatures.
  • Steel strings require a lower
  • Synthetic strings have an average
  • Gut strings a higher bond strength

  • Violin bow needs the lowest bond strength (hardest rosin)
  • Viola bow requires a lower bond strength (hard rosin)
  • Cello bow, bass viol bow an average adhesion force (medium soft rosin)
  • Double bass bow a high adhesive force (soft rosin)

Usage of rosin:

It is used to treat the horse hair of a bow string so that string vibrations are thus produced when painting over the strings.
For this, the rosin is distributed evenly over the hair of the bow.
At very cheap (and often tacky) Rosin, the dose should be economical to noise and to reduce heavy pollution of the bow, the strings and the instrument.

Care after the use of rosin:

By playing a stringed instrument, the rosin comes off the bow hair in the form of dust.
The dust should be after playing from the strings of the instrument cover and the fretboard with a soft, dry, lint-free cotton or microfiber cloth to remove.
It should have different towels are used, because otherwise you may rub rosin particles in the paint of the instrument.
Stubborn residue on the strings can be removed with string cleaner, with bare gut strings should then be rubbed lightly with string oil.

A wide range of rosin is available in our category Rosin.
