There have been lots of threads on preferred rosins, but I have never seen one specifically concerning pure-gut (unwound) strings.
Nate, are you out there?
I'm looking for a rosin that will minimize the innate scratchiness of gut, without sounding dull or dead.
My fav for synthetic & wound gut is Tartini solo (brown) but it REALLY accentuates the scratchies. Tartini Orch & green are smoother, but a bit boring on these strings.
Maybe there's no perfect solution, but I'm looking for suggestions.
