The choice of student and professional alike, Hidersine's 3C (Medium Cake) has become ubiquitous amongst cellists thanks to its balance of grip (Grip Profile #4) and playability.

This light amber rosin's constituent harder characteristics deliver great levels of bow hair traction on cello strings, being a little forgiving for the newer player yet still allowing more advanced players to articulate dynamic highs and lows.

NB: It is worth noting that ‘light/hard’ cello rosin is a little softer than the equivalent ‘light/hard’ violin rosin, as the larger strings of the cello require a slightly softer starting point to obtain the same levels of grip.

Made to one of Francis Hider’s most historic recipes, Hidersine 3C rosin has set the bar for cello rosins for decades, and it's still made in England in the same way as it always was: the Artisanal process of hand-mixing and hand-pouring.
