The choice of student and professional alike, Hidersine's 1C has become ubiquitous amongst cellists thanks to its balance of grip (Grip Profile #4) and playability.
This light amber rosin's constituent harder characteristics deliver great levels of bow hair traction on cello strings, being a little forgiving for the newer player yet still allowing more advanced players to articulate dynamic highs and lows.
NB: It is worth noting that â€˜light/hardâ€™ cello rosin is a little softer than the equivalent â€˜light/hardâ€™ violin rosin, as the larger strings of the cello require a slightly softer starting point to obtain the same levels of grip.
Made to one of Francis Hiderâ€™s most historic recipes, Hidersine 1C rosins have set the bar for cello rosins for decades, and theyâ€™re still made in England in the same way as they always were: the Artisanal process of hand-mixing and hand-pouring.
