Great rosin

I love it. It barely makes any dust

Gary Gay

A good match for the Fiddlerman carbon fiber bow.

I admit, I've only begun playing the violin a few months ago at age 67. The rosin that came with my violin was a "light" rosin that seems to shed copious quantities of dust and seemed a bit thin sounding, especially on my Fiddlerman carbon fiber bow. I realize this could simply be my own ineptitude, but I decided to try the Holstein Premium Rosin to see if it would make a difference. I'd have to say this rosin is definitely an improvement. The sound is richer and fuller, and there's very little dust unless I seriously overuse the rosin. On the whole, I'm happy with this rosin (good thing, because rosin tends to last a long time). My only complaint is with the packaging. the plastic case with magnetic closure is a nice touch, but the rosin cake is glued to the case with a dollop of hot melt glue which doesn't really bond with the plastic. The cake had broken loose from the case during shipping and was rattling around inside when opened. Fortunately, there were only a few chips missing from the edge, and I was able to reattach the rosin with "super glue." Perhaps in the future, you might consider a different adhesive with better hold.


Elegant little treasure

So admittedly I have plenty of rosin of various types. I actually forgot it was included with the violin (soloist) I purchased months ago. This weekend I grabbed my violin and thought “dang” (not actually the word I used) thinking I had no rosin. Looking through the case, I came across the little box of Holstein rosin. I opened the little white box to find the most elegant little cake of red rosin. I applied the rosin in my usual hasty manner and proceed to play. Wow! What lovely rosin. Smooth action, not powdery or sticky but smooth. A very elegant rosin in presentation and performance. Bravo!

Very brittle/fragile but it's a great rosin.

The moment I scratched the surface a huge chunk fell off the edge. I continued to scratch it and then applied to the bow. There was a marked difference in the feel and sound of my bow. I will be buying this rosin again, it just hurts a little worse when something that you really like is falling apart.


Hi Kenneth! We are so sorry, you must have received a rosin with a fracture. Sometimes this happens during shipping. We will be happy to send you another rosin - it will be shipped today! Thanks for the great review, by the way!! Happy you noticed a difference while playing.
