Rosin for Violin, Viola, Cello and Double Bass Bows


Rosin products can be confusing. Many rosins are similar. We have displayed popular and recommended choices near the top. If you don't have a particular choice in mind, choose from those listed first. Andrea Rosin has been a top seller, despite the price. It's OK to leave your strings coated with rosin. If you see build-up of rosin on your strings, remove it. Build-up is a sign you are using too much rosin. Good rosins should not flake off the bow and string to accumulate on the body of your instrument. Rosins like Andrea, Melos and others stick to the strings and hair remarkably well. You won't have to apply rosin as often, and performance is consistent.
