"...It is long lasting, applies easily and evenly and prolongs hair resilience and life. It sets a unique standard." - Lynn Harrell - cellist
Each and every block of ANDREA rosin is made by hand in the USA from a select blend of the highest quality ingredients by professional New York violinist Peter Bahng. You might remember that ANDREA rosin was made by Andrea Bang several years ago under the name Tartini (not to be confused with New Tartini which is a different product).
"I love trying new things, to stay in touch with innovators and follow developments. But when it comes to rosin, I always, always come back to Andrea "A Piacere". The only rosin that effects my sound instantly, rich in overtones for that extra golden tone quality
we cellists look for. Very responsive in articulation while at the same time you feel the bow 'sink' into the strings. What a pleasure to play! "
Used by professional players, this rosin is worth every penny for the sound that it draws from your instrument. Many professional musicians won't use any other rosin and if you try it you'll understand why. Just 4-5 swipes of your bow over the rosin is enough due to it's powerful formulation, so it's economical too.
Sometimes you will see small bubbles in ANDREA rosin. After the hot liquid rosin is poured into the mould, some bubbles are too stubborn to come all the way up to the surface of the rosin during the cooling process. So they set and can be seen. It does not result any negative effects on its quality of performance. In fact we like to think that it makes each rosin unique and individual.
You might notice a slight pink (Solo and Orchestra) or green (A Piacere) tint on your bow. ANDREA rosin is a special formula that includes some rare tree saps from various regions. Some of them come in a stronger reddish brown colour depending on the season. The playing characteristics of the formula stay the same. There is nothing to worry about if your bow hair turns a little pink (or green for A Piacere).
