I have a question with regards to rosin. My teacher uses a rosin by Hidersine which is black in color. Mind you she told me her rosin is prob up to 10 years old (I don't know if color changed over time).
From what I can gather, darker rosin is softer and meant for larger instruments (as a rule of thumb). So black rosins are generally for cellos.
I tried to purchase a black colored Hidersine rosin for my violin, and the music store person was very confused. Being a beginer and not knowing enough, I caved and bought the Hidersine 3V Violin rosin.
I'm getting mixed messages everywhere here. Can someone speak to this and clarify the rosin issue for me?
