Yumba Professional Handmade Bee Violin & Viola Rosin from Argentina!
This line was created for professional orchestra musicians and soloists. The formulas are mixed with excellent natural origin ingredients to attain extraordinary grip and sustain. This exquisite recipe contains genuine beeswax which produces beautiful sonorities with less dust and residue than traditional tree-sap rosins.
Yumba rosins are tapped from the Argentine Littoral - known as the Mesopotamian region, which is surrounded by the Iguazú, Uruguay and Paraná rivers. The tropical weather and rivers which cross the Argentine territory as well as the abundant rainfall produced in the region create excellent conditions for pine growth. The result is one of the most unique rosins in the world.
Yumba’s process of production is sheer artisanal- made from all natural ingredients from Argentina.
Yumba is a tango created by Osvaldo Pugliese in 1946 during the "Golden Age of Argentine Tango.” The term comes from the rhythmical onomatopoeia (zhoóm-ba) whose “Zhoóm” or “Yum” syllable refers to the strong beats while “Ba” refers to the weak ones.
Our intention was to unify the brand with the splendor that is Tango in Argentina
Moreover, Yumba was named to honor the Tango master Pugliese, who is considered the patron saint of musicians. Last but not least, we are convinced that to play the “yumbeado accent” you gotta rosin that bow.
Each time I’ve had dealings with Fiddlershop, they have been nothing but positive from my original violin purchase to now the purchase of really nice rosin. Thank you.
I love this rosin. I had been using my old rosin for many years and didn't realize what a difference a higher quality rosin could make. This is very nice.
I love this rosin because it leaves very little if any rosin on the strings, fingerboard, violin and bow. It grabs for that wonderful sound you are looking for. I have used it for months and it seems I add some ever day or two. I usually play for 4 to 8 hours a day. The cake barely shows wear, so this will last for a long time. Best rosin I have tried and I have many kinds. This will be my only rosin in the future.
I have only been playing for about 6 months, so I am new to all of this but, I just got this as a birthday present and all I can say is WOW!! I have one of the cheapest make of violins which does produce the smoothest of sounds (my teacher also said my bow is pretty much shot). In addition, I found myself getting heart palpitations while I played and wondered if I was experiencing some sort of allergic reaction to my rosin. I put my new Yumba rosin on and could not believe the difference!!! For the first time, I did not dislike the sound of my violin. The difference is amazing. The grip of the bow, which was practically non existent previously, is now there and it grips well, and it sounds so much sweeter. Also, no heart palpitations!! I cannot recommend this product highly enough. I am throwing out the rosin that my violin came with - I think the cheap stuff comes in a little box that looks somewhat like a casket for a reason! Yumba rosin is worth every penny and more! Do yourself a favor and purchase this. You will be so glad you did!
Leaves little or no residue in the fingerboard or the top plate. Works well. Good feel on the strings. Rather pricey!
