Experienced musicians of the violin and viola are well aware of how important rosin is to their performance. Rosin is a resin that's collected directly from various types of pine trees (in a tapping process) and it's used to create friction so a bow can grip to the strings and make a sound. The simple truth is that your bow can't slide if there's no rosin, and the kind you choose will have a significant impact on your tone. The good news is that viola and viola general purpose rosin is very easy to come by and companies like Super Sensitive, The String Centre, Bellafina and many others can be found right here.

Before choosing rosin, you'll want to consider a few things, including your current skill level and what kind of tone you hope to achieve with your instrument. Student-grade rosin is the most affordable and usually has a gritty sound that many fiddlers favor. However, classical violinists and violists prefer professional-grade rosin for its smooth, controlled sound. You'll also need to decide between light and dark rosin. While dark rosin is great for lower stringed instruments like the cello, lighter (amber) rosin is a better fit for violins and violas.

For an affordable rosin that boasts a high rating, check out the Super Sensitive Violin/Viola Rosin. Although priced for students, this rosin is very high in quality for its price and will provide you with all the friction you need to master your bowing technique. Another popular choice is the Jade Violin Viola Cello Rosin. Made in France, this rosin creates a firm yet smooth grip and is ideal for symphony musicians and concert artists alike. While you're at it, check out the Andrea Rosin Symphony Violin Rosin. This rosin is specially formulated to provide a warm sound that blends extremely well with ensembles, and it also just happens to be a top seller.

Whatever you choose, keep in mind that you need to tighten your bow first before applying any rosin. Also, make sure that the frog end and the tip of your bow has more rosin than its middle. 5 to 10 strokes of rosin across your bow should be more than enough, but how much rosin you apply is really a matter of personal preference. So without hesitating any further, browse away! The violin/viola general purpose rosin for you is definitely waiting in this catalog.
