Specially formulated for gut strings, the gentle but clean attack and smoother traction allows the string to resonate freely with maximum clarity. Baroque rosin makes a bright, clear sound with a feeling that the bow is quicker on the string and makes it easier to play fast with more clarity. The smoother traction allows the string to be played with more intensity without distortion and also reduce the ‘squeak’ often encountered with using modern rosins on gut.

Our Premium Australian Leather is sustainably and ethically sourced from Australian farms. This leather is soft and beautiful, with natural marks and blemishes that mean each small rosin wrap carries its own unique pattern and markings.

We spend hours considering the tiniest of nuances in our performance, yet often don’t consider that all-important layer between bow and string. Leatherwood Rosin has added new and pleasing dimensions to my playing and I highly recommend spending your valuable time discovering this product. I’m converted.
I love the feeling I get from the contact between the hair of my bow and the gut of my string, when using leatherwood rosin. The response is both silky and strong, I feel powerful and precise, and I can really sense the material of the gut right through the bow, allowing for superb control of microdynamics and tone color. In my experience, the rosin doesn’t dry up like other brands may, and remains sticky without it getting too much.
