Melos Rosin is a family-run company founded in 2003 in Thessaloniki, Greece.
Their vision was to offer pure, high-quality rosins for string instruments, accessible to everyone. A handmade, fresh cake that enhances one’s skills and ultimately broadens their creative process. Over the years, they did our best to live up to this commitment. Now, 20 years later, they proudly look back and make sure to keep on delivering the highest standard.
After several experiments and thorough tests with different strings, instrument bodies, and temperatures, Melos rosins are designed to deliver under any condition. The key to the recipes is the raw material. They use greek pine-tree resin and colophony combined with the finest ingredients, handpicked by local suppliers. These ingredients ensure a fresh, natural, and fine rosin that meets the highest expectations.
