Cecilia Solo violin rosin has been specially designed for soloists. That’s why it is recommended if you’re looking for a powerful tone and a clear articulation. It is the same recipe than the very famous Andreas Solo, only its name has changed.

Cecilia Solo violin rosin features
From the first application, you’ll immediately notice a change in tone. Solo violin rosin provides an incredibly powerful projection, yet it won’t jeopardise the finesse of the soloist’s playing. It is also easily forgiving under high bow pressure on the strings without the sound cracking.
The Andrea rosin has been renamed Cecilia. First of all, it is the patron saint of musicians – Saint Cecilia. It was also an opportunity for Peter Bahng to honour his mother’s memory as she had the same name and passed away in 2019. Therefore, since 2020, every rosin produced by the musicians family bear the name Cecilia.
Furthermore, two sizes are available for the rosin cake – half and full.
My review on Cecilia Solo violin rosin
This rosin offers first of all a very good tone, with little effort. Although it will give you a very generous volume, it will nevertheless support you with ease in all nuances. It is ideal for soloists (hence its name) but, most of all, it is great for big concert halls.
Finaly, it is quite interesting to apply it on a newly rehaired bow. Indeed, it gives an immediate grip and does not need to be applied multiple times to saturate the new hairs.
