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.
Love, love, love this rosin! It has just the right "grab" and "attack" while still being smooth. Little to no dust! Greatly helps articulation! I can play faster using this rosin!
Very grabby, but not harsh. If you put it on every day you get a loud, present sound. If you put it on every few days to grab lightens up, but it grabs consistently and the tone gets a little sweeter. If you use hand cream, put it on AFTER you open the tin or you'll have to resort to tools.
Ive been playing the Violin 45 days now. So by no means a professional deserving such a quality product. I am a Beginner who appriciates very quality products. Yumba Bee rosin Is just that. Very Good quality rosin. Very little to no fallout. Grabs the strings very nice. I have used cheap rosin on a cheap rented bow. Hahahha. Never again! I will buy Yumba Bee rosin for the rest of my career as a musician. I love it and would reccomend it to and beginner or professional. The price? Its worth It!
I love this rosin! Best "whim" purchase I've ever made. Its smooth, very little fallout and build up on my strings. I tried it on several different bows, brazilwood, carbon fiber and pernambuco and they all performed well with it. Even just touching it, I can tell it's got something different going on from my Pirastro rosins. I will continue buying this rosin in the future, however the rosin cakes are larger than any other I've purchased (not a bad thing!), so it may in fact, be quite awhile before I need to purchase again. The tins they come in are cute too...if you have a little violin/music themed display somewhere around your house to set it in.
Leaves little or no residue in the fingerboard or the top plate. Works well. Good feel on the strings. Rather pricey!
