What is the best violin Rosin in the world today?
You can only buy it at the best music store in the world, sadly...
Consider the rosins by Andrea Bang.
Salchow rosin rulz
It depends on what you mean by best.

I never rosin my violin, only the bow
Not sure this question has a single answer. For instance, I believe the best rosin for Dominant strings is ... you guessed it, Dominant rosin.
Rob raises an interesting point. Might there be some way of treating the strings which has the same effect as rosining the bow hair...!!??
Salchow is also my favourite.
Superb in all respects.
another vote for melos, love the grip, i use dark. smells funky though.
Kaplan Dark #7.
Liebenzeller GOLD II
Yes that was the best - it is no longer made as I understand it. I will EDIT if I am wrong. There is almost no stock remaining at various stores. But I loved that rosin - it was awesome.

Definately Andrea Bang Paganini Soloist Rosin. It will bring the quality of your sound up alot. I use Pirastro Oliv Strings.
I've only tried Bernardel, Tartini, and Salchow but Salchow is by far the best for me. I sold mine to someone that really wanted it unfortunately and have to make do with Bernardel again until my new cake of Salchow comes in the mail. With some luck IUStrings.com
may soon be offering some types of rosins in addition to strings.
Really Emmanuel? That's great news!
