Most, if not all of today’s production rosins are made from commercially available hardened resins.
Often these resins are actually a byproduct of the wood pulp/paper goods industry.
Our family rosins are made from the liquid sap of living trees...we don’t use hardened resins.
Much like the process for making maple syrup, we tap healthy living trees in order to acquire the raw colophony we then distill into Baker’s rosins.
We feel that raw colophony from living trees contains far more natural fats and sugars than does the hardened resins most of today’s rosins are made from.
It is these fats and sugars that are responsible for the greater adhesion, control, and tone production that our rosins facilitate, not to mention the noticeably low dust and low noise our rosins are commonly noted for.
There is no comparing rosin made from the sap of living trees to those made from hardened resins, and our users testify to that fact frequently (please see testimonials).
An added benefit is that the way we make our rosins doesn’t kill trees.
