Obviously I wouldn't turn to a violin forum normally for help with a musical instrument that wasn't a violin, but, surprise surprise, there isn't a lot of places to troubleshoot musical saws, and I think my problem is actually one of rosin and bow anyway. I am desperate! I find when I play that I get a horrible squeaking. No matter how I bow, it happens. I can reduce it sometimes, but it is distracting and annoying. After reading on this forum I think the problem may be rosin. I use Super Sensitive Dark Violin Rosin right now and not very much of it. Can anyone suggest a violin rosin that would be better for this purpose? Do you guys think that a thicker rosin for, say, a cello would be better, even though I play the saw with a violin bow? I hope someone can shed light on this.
