Pirastro Goldflex Hard Rosin Rosin (P900600)

A harder rosin mixed with gold dust.

Pirastro Goldflex Rosin is a slightly harder rosin mixed with gold dust. The gold particles help reduce the level of dust making this a very clean playing rosin. The extra grip also produces a smooth, strong tone. Goldflex rosin is recommended for violinists that use steel violin strings but can also be quite successfully used by viola and cello players. Rosin impacts the bowing technique and the sound colour of an instrument immensely and it is important that a rosin is carefully chosen.

If you're new to rosin, here's a quick guide. String players often carry more than one type of rosin, depending on various factors like the stings they have on different instruments, where they're playing and - believe it or not - the weather conditions! High quality rosin allows for bowing without scratchy sounds, especially if only a thin layer of rosin is applied. We have sold rosin for over 30 years and we are often asked which rosin should I use? Here's what our thought process always is....

Question 2 - What is the core material of the string on the instrumet?
- A harder rosin is often preferred when playing with steel core strings.
- A softer rosin is often preferred when playing synthetic, gut and gut wound strings

Question 3 - Where is the musician playing?
- A harder rosin is often preferred when playing in a concert hall.
- A softer rosin is often preferred when playing in a studio.

Question 4 - What  weather changes.
