Leatherwood Bespoke Rosin for Violin, Viola and Cello
Leatherwood is well known for their famous rosin recipes that enhance the sound and response of instruments. The rosin allows for better attack, clarity, traction, and sound texture. It's definitely one of the best rosins you'll find!
There are 3 blends to choose from:
The Bespoke Blend itself has 3 options as well: 75% crisp, 75% supple, or 50/50.
Choose Your Blend
Supple Blend - 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.
Crisp Blend - 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.
Bespoke Blend - a customised rosin recipe made for you to suit your exacting needs. We can further customise your recipe by changing the strength of initial attack, the heaviness of the texture and the level of brightness and warmth. We can also make recipes specific to unusual instrument such as electric and folk instruments.
Bespoke 75% supple - If you love the warmth and depth of the supple blend, this recipe gives you added clarity and bite to the thicker texture.
Bespoke 75% crisp - This bespoke recipe is the perfect blend for the soloist. It focuses on power, projection and clarity, with a slightly thicker texture that will highlight warm resonances.
Bespoke 50% supple & crisp - A perfect mix of both supple and crisp recipes, this rosin recipe will have a balanced texture and sound palette.
