    I’ve had some rosin that got such a horrible filmy build up on the top that it was no longer going onto my bow. But the jade rosin seems to last forever. It’s amazing! I have an accoustic violin, as well as an electric, and I have jade rosin for both of them.

    All this input about rosin is so interesting! 🙂 The rosin I have is clear, it’s called Magic Rosin. Has anybody heard of it? 🙂

    I personally haven’t heard of magic rosin in my 15+ years of playing the violin, HOWEVER that means nothing. There are so many different types of everything out there. Up until about 7 years ago when I first learned of jade rosin, I’d never heard of it either. So I’m learning something new everyday in this community, and I LOVE learning everything that I’m learning about!

    When my friend was learning to play the violin in middle school, rosin always seemed like a very confusing subject to me. What is it? How do you put it on your bow? What does it look like? I didnt know that there were different kinds. The only thing I knew is that it supposedly came from trees. This thread was very helpful! It sounds like the Jade is the best type. And that’s a great tip to know if the bow has enough rosin!

    Personally I don’t know much about rosin or care for it but I had given a rosin as a gift to a friend from a place called Magic Rosin. She seemed to like it very much and liked the quality of it saying that “it produces a warm sound and has a good grip”

    Maggie, I also use gold ii, I think if is fantastic and find I don’t even need to use much of it for a resonant tone and smooth gliding bow. Would really recommend trying it – I buy from the maker Larica/Liebenzeller in Germany, where you can also get sample sizes of different metallic rosins.

    With the heat and humidity of this place and the warm winters (rarely gets down to freezing) , I don’t use jade rosin. It gets gummy. I have had some good results using Liebenzeller Silber 1, but the experimentation has not reached a conclusion.
