Leatherwood's two set recipes for violin offer very distinct sound and response characteristics:
Crisp: A decisive attack, firm traction and crisp sautille; this recipe creates an undeniably forthright sound through a glassier texture.
Supple: A warm and softer sound, consistent traction that feels velvety and rich; this recipe maintains a reliably sharp attack on the string.
Leatherwood Bespoke Rosin
From the grain patterns of timber to the quality of varnishes, the Leatherwood Rosin team is passionate about the 'texture' of the string-playing world. They value the relationships between performers and their artisan violin and bow makers; the journey of construction and maintenance, and the high appreciation of stunningly beautiful natural materials being as important as energies spent in the practice room or on stage.
