LARICA Metal Rosin continues the tradition of the famous Liebenzeller Metal Rosin. We use the original formula and manufacturing process. Each step is done by hand and therefore we can guarantee the high quality you have come to expect from Liebenzeller Metal rosins.
By using larch resin, adding metals and our special production process, our rosin produces more lively, warmer and brighter sounds. Depending on the metal addition, each rosin is able to produce a wide differentiation in sound quality.
To take full advantage of the high quality rosin please keep in mind the following: Before applying the metal rosin for the first time, the bow should be thoroughly cleaned. Apply less rosin to the bow then you normally would and clean the strings with alcohol from time to time. The bow should also be cleaned with alcohol, but less frequently. Often in the beginning, too much rosin is applied to the bow and therefore it does not stick very well to the strings. When this happens, the tone may not develop fully.
LARICA Metal Rosin with Gold is now available in hardness' from I to IV. Beginning in 2010, Rosins with other metal additions and Gold E. will again be available. You will then have the complete unique sound variety our rosins provide.
LARICA Metal rosin with Gold addition has uniquely balanced characteristics: the sound is full, round and warm as well as bright and crisp. This rosin gives the best variety of tone qualities to the instrument.
