... I was really curious to try out your rosin for the first time. My wife (Svetlana Makarova) and I highly liked the Laubach gold rosin. It instantly improved the sound of my violin and started sounding cleaner and much richer than before. From now on I will recommend your magical rosin to my students and friends with pleasure...

... Many thanks for delivering my purchase - I received it safely today.I’ll be happy to recommend my violinists/colleagues to buy the Laubach Rosin which I find of superior quality to the other brands I’ve used before.
All best wishes for continuing success, Dmitry Sitkovetsky

...I began using Laubach gold rosin upon the recommendation of
Leonidas Kavakos, and find it to be one of the best rosins i have ever used. It
is highly efficient as it stays on the bow for a very long time, and yet the
texture of sound is always smooth. I am extremely happy to have found Laubach
Gold rosin and would recommend it most warmly to all professional violinists.

…Without a doubt I can recommend your gold rosin all artists, from students to the soloists of the highest rank. Best regards,

… your golden rosin. I want to congratulate you on a fantastic product! Bravo! It is just as you advertised it: almost no dust and a fine tone. I know my colleagues also complain that they sometimes drop the rosin.
vielen Jahren benutze ich ausschließlich das Gold Kolofonium von Laubach, weil es meiner Schätzung nach, das Beste ist. Es ist sehr weich und ermöglicht einen brillanten Klang.
Vor einiger Zeit habe ich auch seine Instrumente kennengelernt. Ich war
sehr beeindruckt von ihrer hohen Qualität, sehr schöner Ton und
ausgeglichenen Timbre. Die Instrumente sehen sehr schön aus.
Besonders gut gefallen mir die Bögen, die sehr elastisch sind und
hervorragenden Kontakt zur die Saite herstellen.
.. After trying Laubach Gold Cello Rosin, I was really impressed by how the
rosin can develop the sound of the instrument and help you to find some new
aspects in cello playing...

rosins give the best sound approach of all rosins I tested!, the sound is real
direkt and clear! fantastik!
I give you my compliments!

Good rosin! Pros: Good overall rosin, much better than my old one (which I'd
bought completely randomly about 4 years ago.) I don't really have much basis
for comparison, but it works well, and I don't have to use it too much. Cons: Again, I can't compare it with much, but I don't know of any
Pros: It has a 'silky smooth' effect on the strings and my playing no
longer sounds scratchy as it did with a previous rosin. Cons: None.
An excellent item. Pros: An excellent quality gold speck rosin, nicely packaged.
I'm currently trialing various gold speck rosins and this one is certainly a
premium product. Cons: Pricey but the quality IS there and noticable.
Gold dust for golden sound! Pros: I like this rosin. It allows a smoothness to the bow,
previous rosins havn't. It also sheds very little dust. It has also made a
slight difference to how the violin sounds. A good product, I would certainly
buy it again when it needs replacing. Cons: No cons found.
Worth its weight in gold. Pros: I first bought Laubach Gold Rosin well over a year ago and
used it very much the same as I had used a cheaper standard rosin, applying
loads of the stuff regularly throughout my practise sessions, but after a while
I tended to apply it far less frequently as my playing improved until
eventually I'd just be applying it every other session or sometimes even less.
However, when the time came to replace it, out of convienience I bought the
cheaper standard rosin from a local shop thinking that'll do, it's only rosin
after all but within seconds of playing with the cheap stuff it became apparent
that I had to get my hands on Laubach Gold Rosin again so I immediately placed
an order and received it a few days later. Three passes of Laubach Gold along
my bow every now and again is all that is needed and my playing continues to
improve, albeit very slowly but that's down to me not the rosin. Cons: Ok so it's a little pricey, but using it like I do it should
last a couple of years if looked after and what with the lovely golden crushed
velvet backing cloth and natty little box it does look a bit special. Other: To buy a cheaper rosin is probably just a false economy.
Top quality rosin. Pros: Nice rosin. Pricey but you get what you pay for. Nice
magnetic close on box. Cons: No cons.
A fine quality rosin! Pros: An excellent rosin, very similar to the now unavailable
Liebenzeller rosin. Cons: Somewhat expensive.
Fantastic! Pros: I am a bass player and I absolutely love this. Big sound,
plenty of grip without being gritty at all the way I found Dominant and Andrea
rosins. You start the note and then you can just float the bow effortlessly.
The case is cool too.
Pros: Super smooth playing and drawing bow across the string. Cons: None. Other: Worth every penny, will definitely buy again.
First class roisin Pros: bought this for my partner, a very
enthusiastic amateur, she loves the richness of sound this roisin helps
produce. i can hear a much better "sound" when she plays Cons: none yet
Other: she also likes the magnetic lid
Bling Pros: Christmas bling for teacher who
normally uses Pirastro Goldflex. Cons: Far too expensive. Other: The last time I gave one of these
to a teacher she waited a year and a half and then told me she thought it was
A good cello rosin Pros: It was worth trying this cello
rosin--I'm finding it gives a better ''grip'' than other rosins used
recently;so the sound is improved
Great rosin Pros:
Lovely rosin. Not too sticky- produces a clean sound. Cons:
Nothing so far
The improvement in sound is worth the price Pros:
Gives a great smooth sound, you can definitely hear the difference. Minimal dust and beautifully packaged. Cons:
The price may be a little high but this is definitely an excellent
quality product so some may find the price worth it. I would definitely
buy this again.
