Liebenzeller metal rosin has been made in a small village in the German Black Forest for over 40 years. The unique recipe was developed in the workshop of the Viennese violin maker Dr. Thomastik as early as 1922. Made traditionally by hand, Liebenzeller rosin contains delicate bubbles which emphasize the special quality and spirited nature of the rosin. Using pure larch resin with the addition of different metals produces livelier, warmer and brighter sounds than other rosins. This will help produce enhanced tonal volume, greater modulation and carrying power, conveying the individual sound of the instrument without effort, and one-sided tones can be compensated. The bow develops an excellent and even response, with ambient noise minimized.
Choosing the right rosin is critical as it is the rosin that creates the sound while playing. Liebenzeller rosin enhances a string instruments sound as well as the players creativity with as little effort as possible. We are proud to reintroduce Liebenzeller rosin to the United States after an extended period when it was unavailable here.
Liebenzeller rosin is available with Gold, Silver, Copper or Meteor Iron added for a range of unique sounds.
Uniquely balanced; the sound is full, round and warm as well as bright and crisp, transparent and light in high notes.
Grades I (hard) to VI (soft): the softer grades make the harshness of an instrument milder and enhance it, the harder grades provide more clarity.
Gold II: uniquely balanced, a bit more mellow (violin, viola)
