Larica Rosin. The Original Liebnzeller Recipe


Larica Metal Rosin

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: Apply less rosin to the bow then you normally would and clean the strings with alcohol from time to time. 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 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.

Choosing a Hardness

The scale of hardness for rosin ranges from I-VI, hardest to softest. For most instruments, there are two grades of hardness to choose from. The softer grades essentially help the hard and sharp sounds of an instrument produce a milder and nobler tone quality. The harder grades can bring more clarity and exactitude to a softer tone. The rosin is excellently suited for newly made instruments, Baroque instruments, and all those in the Chrotta family.

Violin: I,II - Viola: II,III - Cello: III,IV - Baroque Cello or Bass Viol: IV, V - Bass: V,VI
