Great in every aspect

This rosin is definitely very good - but not amazing, at least not on my cello. It does everything you could want a rosin to do very well, it has a nice warm sound, low dust, a smooth feel and solid grip, and overall an ease of use that gives you a clear connection between your bow and your strings. However, it does not achieve the same resonance and elegant sound of some other rosins (yumba, leatherwood, Cecilia), so if you are looking for a sound that really sets you apart maybe look for something else. That being said, I would recommend it to anyone that wants a reliable and versatile rosin, beginner or expert.

Good for Lookin, Good for Playin

Decided to try something different with my new bow so got some Holstein Reserve. Spent two days just looking at the sunlight refract through it. Deep, lustrous, very pretty. It was a shame to score it for the bow hair. Seems to play well too! Softer than the dark resin that came with the outfit, less dust, but not none (we need some dust to play, right?) Grips quite well and consider it a worthwhile improvement. Will get another cake when this runs out.

Por fin una resina que cumple con todas mis espectativas como violinista profesional, se ajusta y produce un hermoso sonido y no deja casi residuos, el precio es elevado pero hasta ahora vale la pena.

It’s okay.

It felt pretty dried-out from the day I got it. Eventually I gave it some heat with a kitchen torch and scratched it up with a knife, and then it seemed to take better to the string. I live in the essentially moisture-free environment of California, so I’m not sure if that has affected the experience. But overall, this has less grip and more dust than the Holstein Premium, and I even prefer the regular Fiddlerman rosin to this. I’m okay with experiments not turning out right for me, though. But maybe it will be right for you.

Best Rosin ever

I have 12 different brands of rosin including Yumba, Andrea, Old Master and others. The inly rosin that came close was Yumba. I like Holstein Reserve the best. It goes on so smoothly and I can play for several days without adding more rosin. There is just a tiny bit of rosin dust left on the violin. I seem to get more regular dust than rosin dust! The sound is velvety compared to some of the other rosins. Thanks for a great product to help take good care of my violins.
