My daughter just got a violin and loves.

This rosin is so much better than the rosin that came packed with my new violin.

It appears to be a very good product and we will order more in the future.

Super Sensitive Violin Rosin Light is as cheap as they come, to put it lightly. When one rents a violin or a viola from a music store, this is typically the rosin they'll give you with your case. Why? It's affordable.

As a more experienced violinist, I'm quick to disparage the use of this rosin. It is low quality, and the bare minimum of what rosin should accomplish. Rosin is an important aspect of playing the violin, as different quality rosins will alter the sound and ease of play.

That being said, however, if you are looking to buy rosin for your beginning violinist, there's no harm in beginning with this rosin. I spent my first two years as a violinist with it. When one can only play twinkle twinkle in a slightly off register, it's more important to worry about firmly grasping the basics of violin technique than the quality of ones rosin.

Additionally, if we're talking about children, whose to say whether they will stick with the violin for very long? Buying expensive, high quality accessories in that scenario just wouldn't make sense. That is the sole reason why rosins such as these, and other low quality shoulder rests exist, to ease the financial burden when one is a beginner.

So, in a nutshell: If you're just starting off as a violinist, this is the most affordable rosin for you. However, as you progress into an intermediate or advanced violinist, do look into other high quality rosins that will add a finishing touch to your playing.

I am a complete newby when it comes to the violin. I purchased a violin online on a whim, that because it was so inexpensive if I give up well, at least I have something pretty to look at. With that in mind, my cheap violin came with even cheaper worthless rosin. It was hard as a rock, and I had to score the crap out of it just to get dust to go on my bow, and it would play for just a few strokes, then I had to vigorously reapply. I found this rosin at a music store and bought it. One easy application and I was FINALY making real violin noises. So for a newby that doesn't know all the details yet, this saved me. If it weren't for this rosin I might have just completely given up. I definately recommend to anybody who is a beginer.

I am a beginner violinist and I recently bought my first violin. The rosin that was included with my violin purchase is of very poor quality. Thankfully, I had decided to order this rosin from amazon also as a precaution. It works much better than what was shipped with my violin and not much has to be applied in order for the bow to grasp the strings. It's also very inexpensive. You really can't beat the price. I'm sure it's probably worthwhile to purchase an even higher grade rosin if you're an advanced violinist, but for anyone at the beginner or intermediate stage, this will work very well.

I am a music teacher and can tell you that rosin matters to your sound even as a beginner. Move up and pay $8-$12 for something that really makes a difference. It will last forever if you don't drop it.

I decided to take up violin as a hobby one day, and had read that rosin was important. Even though the inexpensive violin I bought came with rosin, other buyers reccomended getting this. I tried using the included rosin, and it reallllllly didn't work well. I had to scrape it up so that the powder/dust required would actually accumulate on the bow.

This rosin is a better quality, and you get quite a bit. I don't expect to need to get a replacement anytime soon!

This rosin may not be top quality stuff, but if you are a student or just casually learning to play violin, this is perfect for you. The lower quality of this compared to premium (and expensive) rosins will not be noticed unless you play at a proficient level and have a pretty high quality instrument. I recommend this rosin.

This is my first time buying the light rosin (purchased from Woodwind & Brasswind). I've only ever used the dark rosin by Super-Sensitive, purchased from a local vendor, and it held up fine for several years until it began to chip and crack on the ends... but it's still useable.

This light rosin is full of cracks. I uploaded a picture to the gallery to show how it looks (Scroll down a bit on the main product page to see it on the right side). It doesn't appear to be the result from shipping damage, although this was how the box was packaged: Blocks of rosin in an unsealed ziplock bag on top, wadded up packaging paper under it, and another ball of wadded packaging paper at the bottom. The blocks of rosin were resting against the inside of the box instead of being nestled between the paper wadding. Still, I'm sure they didn't get cracked because of this. Someone else that ordered rosin mentioned how it was packed the same way.

How long will these hold up before falling completely apart? Only time will tell, and I will be back to update this review as time goes on.

Also, keep in mind that I haven't used them yet, either.

Edit:

I tried wrapping them up in aluminum foil and putting into the oven set to about 250F for several minutes, and that seemed to help melt the rosin to fix most of the cracks.

Woodwind & Brasswind replied to a message I sent them, and they told me they would send me two FRESH blocks of rosin. I got them but they were just as badly cracked as the first ones. One of my rosin blocks has already begun chipping away and breaking off into chunks. They were packaged the exact same way as the first set.

I suppose I got what I paid for? Junk.
