VERTAVO STRING QUARTET
“Performing with Leatherwood Bespoke Rosin is an experience that can not be overstated! For our demanding and varied repertoire, and in a wide variety of concert halls, we have finally found a rosin that allows us to maximise our articulation, clarity, volume and sound colour range. As a quartet, we can now create a unified sound of greater depth and precision. Thank you Leatherwood Bespoke Rosin, this is the sound we strive to create!”
"It is simply fantastic to have access to a rosin which is just as bespoke as ones own playing. When one spends a lifetime in the attempt to perfect ones personal voice on the instrument, why not have a rosin that works for your voice from the very beginning instead of its own? In Trio Vitruvi, we can strongly recommend leatherwood bespoke rosin."
MATHIAS JOHANSEN, CELLO SOLOIST & PROFESSOR, ECHO CLASSIC WINNER 2016
"Leatherwood Bespoke Rosin ultimately connects my body to the Cello. The instrument has to suit the musician perfectly, the bow has to suit both musician and instrument and finally a rosin that fits seamlessly! From bursting wood to flickering lights - all sounds are just exciting!"
CHRISTIAN SVARFVAR - CONCERT VIOLINIST, SWEDEN
“This rosin is unprecedented! The increase of volume, combined with the velvet smooth elasticity is something I never experienced before - just incredible. It gives you the perfect ping when you catch the string - Leatherwood Bespoke Rosin gives me the sound I was looking for."
MADDALENA DEL GOBBO - VIOLA DA GAMBA, DEUTSCHE GRAMMOPHON ARTIST
“I can highly recommend Leatherwood Bespoke Rosin, the quality is excellent! The baroque recipe for Viola da Gamba is perfect for a full, beautiful sound, for the whole repertoire.
My personalised bespoke recipe supports the sound of my instrument so I can express my own sound even better, and feel more comfortable playing in difficult weather conditions. It is also fun to collect different recipe and try them all!"
JACOB SHAW - CONCERT CELLIST; FOUNDER, SCANDINAVIAN CELLO SCHOOL
To create great music you need a fabulous sound.
Leatherwood Bespoke Rosin is the only rosin I’ve found which gives an undeniably larger, warmer tone. Try this rosin and feel it revolutionise your playing - it certainly did for me!”
HAMPUS LINDERHOLM - SOLO CELLIST
"Since last year, I have been only using the Leartherwood Bespoke Rosin, both Supple and Crisp for my bows.
Personally, I think that Supple gives perfect texture between the bow and string without getting sticky on the bow. It has great possibilities to produce different depths of the sound and also helps to produce endless resonance on the strings from the frog to last edge of the tip. Crisp fits perfectly to project a brighter sounds and fast playing, like baroque or classical repertories, for examples for the operas of Mozarts and Beethoven cello sonatas. In my experience, it even works well when I combine the rosins at the same time.
Leatherwood Bespoke Rosin also preserves the bow hair much longer than others. Since I have used this rosin, I don’t have to rehair my bows as often.
I congratulate Andrew Baker deeply and thank him for the great invention and love to this product and look forward to use it continuously for my cello playing in future."
