Pirastro Schwarz Hard Rosin (Nr900500)

Black, Hard rosin. For steel core strings

Pirastro Tonica rosin is a Black, Hard Rosin. It was developed to be used with Pirastro Tonica violin strings and viola strings but can be used successfully with any make of strings. Each cake of rosin is glued onto a soft cloth which then is attached to a hard plastic grip. This prevents the fingers of the musician getting covered in rosin dust and also makes it easier to apply the rosin evenly. 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.
