So far so good
I received this rosin a couple of weeks ago -- it a was beautiful "golden" sparkly rosin cake ... until I used it. I put it on my new-ish viola bow for a week before a holiday concert which was the weekend before this review. I think the rosin was just fine. My solo was as good as a viola solo can be ;-)
I bought this rosin because my violin teacher used it and it is very smooth, and sounds awesome.
Great as expected
Good quality harder rosin. It produces a nice even tone. No scratch or squeaks. Paired with Vision strings.
Pirastro Goldflex Rosin
This purchase from the Fiddlershop has helped me improve the quality of my music: Pirastro Goldflex Rosin. I am fairly new to the violin and still have difficulty controlling the squeek/scratchiness of the strings – particularly near the ends of the bow. This rosin contains the magic formula I needed to control this scratchiness to a large degree, while I have not changed my imperfect style of bowing. It has been a great purchase!
I am so glad that Julia at violinspirations recommended this rosen. It is wonderful! My violin sounds better, bright tone, much less scratchy. I enjoy practicing more.
