Petz light rosin is ideal for violin, viola and cello beginner students who are looking for great quality rosin at a great price.
Made in Austria.
Rosin is made from tree sap and creates friction between the strings and the bow. Rosin causes the bow hair to stick to the string and pull it, which in turn creates the sound. It’s a good idea to keep a spare rosin stashed away in case it is misplaced or dropped.

Bernardel rosin is made in France using the first pine sap of the season, utilising the same manufacturing process used in Bernardel’s time. This low dust, all purpose rosin, suitable for violin, viola, or cello, is very popular with advanced students and professionals alike because of its precise attack and reliability in all kinds of weather.
In his day Gustave Bernardel (1832 – 1904) was one of the best violin makers in Paris. Today, even if you have never seen his instruments, you know the name because of the rosin he developed, which is still sold in the classic blue pouch with the Bernardel seal.

Andrea Sanctus rosin is a unique formula that combines two separate parts in a single cake of rosin. The main base is hydrogenated to have excellent oxidation resistance. This ensures constant quality performance experienced throughout the long lasting life of this rosin.
This unique combination of two sophisticated rosin formulas provides the optimum balance for sound and bow control. These formulas have been put into two separate areas in one special rosin cake to show the clear definition of their roles. The outer ring formula has been designed to give a silky smooth playing feel and to produce a focused sound on the strings.
The centre formula responds and kicks in when the player demands more power and gutsiness from their instrument. The sound of these formulas when combined is noticeably more focused with enhanced tonal strength. It is still hand poured which makes the rosin making process even more challenging.
Violin, Viola and Cello: $59
