The different rosin blends offer you a precise way to enhance the sound of your instrument. By choosing the Supple or Crisp recipes you can optimise the brightness, clarity, warmth and richness of your sound, and vary the strength of initial attack on the string.
A warm and softer sound, consistent traction that feels velvety and rich; this recipe maintains a reliably sharp attack on the string.
The supple blend generates a more powerful and focused sound from a softer and lighter bow with less ‘bite’. Supple also enhances the sounds of a deep / warm sounding instrument by making it sound more resonant. Supple can also ‘soften’ an instrument which is too loud, bright or one-dimensional in sound.
A decisive attack, firm traction and crisp sautille; this recipe creates an undeniably forthright sound through a glassier texture.
The crisp blend works well with an instrument with lots of resonance but is a little ‘woolly’ in sound, offering it greater clarity and articulation. Crisp also assists bows or techniques that struggle to achieve a clear and articulate spiccato or sautille. Crisp can also assist small student or cheap instruments, by enhancing their sound to be brighter and sometimes louder; and beginning students find it easier to articulate with crisp.
