Kolstein bass rosin is available in three variants, Soft, All-Weather and Hard. The All-Weather variant is the most popular in the UK.
Through extensive research and experimentation, Kolstein double bass rosin has attained this unique and revolutionary “formulation supreme”. The result is bass rosin which has been fully acclaimed by the finest international soloist and ultra-professional orchestral and recording artists.
Kolstein’s Formulation Supreme Bass Rosin is composed of the best ingredients. Created through a high degree of product control in strict accord with the advanced formula. A minimum curing period for a predetermined time is a requirement for all our bass rosin. Also, such features as hand pouring and packaging in a specially designed roll-down silicon unique containerization, all contribute to the superior quality of our rich dark textured rosin.
The rosin is available in a deluxe line which consists of a protective silicon packaging that affords the bassist a rosin packaging that keeps the bass rosin fresh and prevents any melting out of older packaging. The silicon rosin housing then is put in an attractive gold foil container; aesthetic and protective for the professionals’ needs, but practically sized with easy storage in mind. Kolstein’s Formulation Supreme Bass Rosin can be acquired in several grades (Hard, All-Weather, and Soft) to meet the musicians’ personal preference, as well as the geographic and climatic conditions that prevail where the rosin will be used.
As with all Kolstein Formulation Supreme Rosins, their bass rosins have the feature of indefinite shelf-life; that is, it will never dry out and crystallise. Once used, the rosin will show a continual wetting action allowing for easy powdering on the strings and instrument.
