The most tricky and often sticky rosins, are the Double Bass Rosins. Depending on weather, humidity, musical movement, and needed sound projection, a variation of rosins are often needed. Rosins can be soft, but waxy, with little tack. Not so of our products. The Salzman Symphony line offers four distinctive rosins for the professional Double Bass player, as well as those just beginning. The beginner will find less bow squeak from these rosins. The professional player will find a superior tonal quality and projection. A black plastic polycon container identifies the Double Bass rosins, that range from #7 through #10.
Inside this container is a “tin metal” cup that holds the bass rosin. The tin can be easily peeled down to expose the rosin for application. This avoids the often messy results of paper cup based base rosins.
Rosin #10 is the most soft and the most sticky rosin, and is used for those performances that require loud and bold bass projection. The Double Bass rosins are shown below. White on Black lettering along with the scale number is printed on the outer container and also identifies it’s position on the Salzman scale. Those playing in an Orchestra settings will most likely prefer #9 or #10, while solo players will prefer # 7 or # 8. In some cases the #6 which borders the Cello and Bass may be preferred.
