Quick note on Guillaume rosin usage

Edited: October 11, 2019, 7:51 AM · Sorry if i reopen a discussion,

but tonight for the first time i rosined two bows with a fresh Guillaume rosin cake (in a tin box) that arrived today.
I can only say a word:
WOW !!!

I'm trying to understand if i like or not an Arcus C5 bow (not Musing) that i took home from Mondomusica in Cremona for an evaluation. It was almost never played, if not briefly in the expositions.
In 2 weeks i tried with a fresh Bernardel rosin, a Melos medium (Musing's exclusive), and an Andrea Solo. And i could not make it grip in the low strings as i'd want.

Then, enters the Guillaume, and ......... :)

So, thank to who reviewed it in this forum. I decided to test it for this reason.

October 11, 2019, 8:31 PM · In my opinion, using my instruments, i perceive the Andrea Solo to impart more of sound towards the higher spectrum of frequencies. Sort of more glassy sound, if you can pass the term.

The Guillaume gives me the idea (for now) to make a broader sound, more meaty.
