CECILIA rosin is the new name for ANDREA rosin starting in 2020. CECILIA rosin introduces a brand new ‘Liquid Form Blending Method’ with a new CECILIA ‘Signature Formula’ rosin. This new blending process enhances the purity of the rosin as well as increasing the preservation of the original chemical properties of the secret rosin formula. Each individual rosin ingredient is melted slowly until it becomes liquid. It is then dispensed through a special filtering screen and the ingredients are blended together.
“Signature Formula" is a new flagship formula of CECILIA Rosin by Cremona in America which provides a unique bowing sensation when in contact with the string and a clearly defined reaction. This is the most significant new development in our rosin formulas from CiA for the most demanding musicians. Available in viola, violin, and cello. In 2020, Cremona in America renames ANDREA rosin CECILIA. All premium rosins from CiA will be made under the name CECILIA starting in 2020.
I found it is very good and doesn't stain lije solo.
I had been using Cecilia A Piacere prior to trialing a set of wound gut strings. These strings respond fairly well with A Piacere, but the Signature seems a bit too light, meaning insufficient grip. It is very smooth and does impart a nice bow feel. I look forward to trying Signature on my next set of synthetics.
I'm new to playing and I'm not a pro re: rosin, but this rosin offers the right amount of adherence to produce purer tones when playing. Try and sample and see what you think. It came quickly too!
This rosin produces very little dust and helps create a clear, focused, sweet tone.
But it doesn't work like my antique chunk of Wurlitzer rosin. Seems softer, doesn't grab the strings, and builds up on the strings after a few songs. Clearly, I'm an un-trained old-time/bluegrass learning the fiddle. But your samples are appreciated. The chunk of "Jade" rosin is better, but still not my old stuff.
