It brings out the sound on my violin, doesn't seem to make much of a mess and it grips the strings well.

If you want, before buying a large cake of it, check out www.quinnviolins.com and buy the small cake of it for $10.00. It'll last for a long time and isn't that expensive if you decide that you don't like it!

October 26, 2004 at 12:27 PM · That's what I use. Seems good enough. Others report they like it. I sold out, which is unusual for expensive rosin in this area.

October 26, 2004 at 02:16 PM · I have used it for 8 months now and love it. Cannot imagine switching to another brand. Good grip, very very low surface noise on string. No mess unless you over rosin. worked great in cool or warm weather. I am currently using the Tartini solo. I am curious has anyone tried the symphony or Tartini green. Any differences??? Peace Tim

October 26, 2004 at 08:44 PM · The Green really is green, looks a little like Jade, sounds much better. Personally, I prefer Pierre Guillaume.

October 27, 2004 at 11:04 PM · Speaking of Rosins, what do you guys think of Gustave Bernardel rosin?

November 2, 2004 at 01:03 AM · Bernardel is wounderful if it is the old one which is in the aluminium can. I have it as present of my violin maker. He also has a Sartory rosin but he doesn't want even to use it. Tartini Solo rosin is just wounderful!

November 2, 2004 at 02:44 AM · I use the Tartini Green and I think it's great. Grips the strings better than any other rosin I tried which for me makes it easier to play light while still getting a sound.

November 2, 2004 at 03:01 PM · I have been using Tartini Solo. It's fantastic!

November 3, 2004 at 10:29 PM · Tartini also tastes the best :D

I personally haven't found much of a difference in rosin types (except the spray rosins which are terrible).

November 4, 2004 at 03:48 PM · I changed my no-name in the plastic box to Pirastro Goldflex. I think I can't notice any big difference in the sound, but the grip is gorgeous - the bow moves on the strings like a silk, and the crossings are much easier. Someone used the term "glides across the strings" - that's what I feel now. Didn't try Tartini, though.


November 4, 2004 at 06:32 PM · Until I tried Tartini, I'd been using Goldflex for several years. I have to agree, it's very good stuff!
