Liebenzeller Larica Gold III, Rosin The LARICA metal rosin is made after the original formula of the LIEBENZELLER metal rosin. Furthermore the production occurs in accurate, complex manual work. The rythmic treatment of the rosin, gained of pure larch resin in addition of different metals causes that the produced sound becomes more animated, warmer and brighter than with an untreated rosin. Increased sound range, a great ability of modulation and carrying capacity are attributes of an improved sound quality. The individual sound of the instrument is reflected easily, tonal one-sidedness can be compensated. The bow develops a very good and constant response. Background noises are minimised . Humidity- and temperature fluctuations are of less consequence, the dust formation is very low. The GOLD rosin is especially balanced, the sound becomes round, full and warm, at the same time in igher ranges brightly light, slim and clear, There are 2 degrees of hardness for violin: GOLD I is slightly harder and gives the instrument more clearness. GOLD II is slightly softer, it alleviates abrasiveness of the instrument and grades the intonations up. For soloistic play harder rosin is preferred. For cello GOLD III is the harder version, GOLD IV the slightly softer one.
