Available in two formulations with distinct characteristics with an additional Baroque option
A decisive attack, firm traction and crisp sautille; this recipe creates an undeniably forthright sound through a glassier texture.
The crisp blend often works well with an instrument with lots of resonance but is a little ‘woolly’ in sound, offering it greater clarity and articulation.
R130 Violin. R131 Viola. R132 Cello.
A warm and softer sound, consistent traction that feels velvety and rich; this recipe maintains a reliably sharp attack on the string.
The supple blend can help generate a more powerful and focused sound from a softer and lighter bow with less ‘bite’.
R140 Violin R141 Viola. R142 Cello.
Specially formulated for gut strings, the gentle but clean attack and smoother traction allows the string to resonate freely with maximum clarity without distortion and also reduce the ‘squeak’ often encountered with using modern rosins on gut.
R134 Violin. R135 Viola. R136 Cello.
Cake encased in a variety of wooden mounts from sustainable sources. Leather wrap, artisan made, hemp alternative available. Wood stamped by type. VNS, for example, is Violin Supple. VNC BQ is Violin Baroque.
Leatherwood Bespoke Rosin’s founder, Andrew Baker, has always been excited by the colours, textures and aromas of the violin-making tradition.
From the grain patterns of timber to the quality of varnishes, Andrew is passionate about the ‘texture’ of the string-playing world. Andrew has valued the relationships between performers and their artisan violin and bow makers; the journey of construction and maintenance, and the high appreciation of stunningly beautiful natural materials being as significant as energies spent in the practice room or on stage.
