Very good rosin for orquestral playing, been using it for years on and off, but always go back and buy a new cake. It is very sticky rosin so you will get a nice grip for low notes, and you will get a nice dark tone out of it. I dont considerer a very good rosin for solo playing, it is too much sticky to play close to the bridge, wich sometime makes the bow stop. Normaly after one year of playing this rosin gets dry, at least where I live , so every year I buy a new one. Should be use very little at a time, if you put too much your bow will stick to the string and stop. Another advice never leave in the car in hot weather it will melt down and turn in to goo.
I've recently purchased the THomann CBB-01G 3/4 Carbon Bassbow and needed rosin to be able to use it. After much discussion with various fellow bassists, I was given positive feedback from several people about Carlsson rosin. As there are many rosins to choose from at Thomann, and I'm a new at using the bow, it was good to have opinions on what to buy.
One of the major pluses was the price. For someone like me, new to bowing, I didn't want to spend too much on something that may ultimately not be right for me.
I received the rosin and liked very much how it is packaged. It is in its own heavy foil wrapping that is inside of a sturdy plastic, re-usable container that helps keep it fresh and away from dirt, dust and damage.
