Leatherwood Rosin

Leatherwood Bespoke Rosin is made in Australia by a small but passionate company producing premium rosin for all bowed instruments. There is a great choice of texture and adherence. The intention is to work together with musicians to make the rosin they really would like to have.

The rosin shown here has been developed recently for the G Violone. It works really well, as do the others I use for the cello, viol and double bass. In fact, I don’t use other rosins anymore …

Nota Bene viol consort USA

Since 2016 the musicians of Nota Bene viol consort are playing with Renaissance viol bows made out of Acacia wood.

Recently they recorded the concert in the Slosberg Recital Hall, Brandeis University, Waltham, MA USA. We are lucky to share a moment of this beautiful event with Pietro Vinci’s music on Sonetti Sirituali.
