  • It is hard for me add anything to the praise that so many others have given your rosin. All I can say is that it fully lives up to the very high expectations generated by reading all the comments on your website. There is an immediate tangible improvement in sound, particularly in double stopped passages, which are made much clearer and cleaner.
    Thank you once again, and I look forward to many years playing with Bakers

  • I just wanted to let you know that after spending a week with your Vuillaume Citron, I have concluded that it not only lives up to the hype, it surpasses it. This is by far the best rosin I've ever seen, and I've experimented with nearly ever brand on the market. I plan to spend the next week with your original formula and see how it compares. I suspect that in the near future you will become the unofficial rosin sponsor of the Illinois Symphony Orchestra. Everyone who tried it was blown away.

  • Hi TC, The rosin arrived yesterday and it is the best I have ever used , thanks for what you do. It seems to have made my bow respond better and improved the tone of my violin. Your rosin really is a superior product. Even the way it is taken up by the bow hair, no need to use an abrasive to start the process I could feel the grip with the first pull across it. Excellent work.

  • Mr. Baker, Your rosin has left me with a dilemma ... half of me wants to run shouting about it to everyone I know, the other half wants to keep it as a secret weapon for my playing only. It has unbelievable grip -- it's like the Audi Quattro of rosin. At the same time, it changes the sound in a positive way. It reminds me of the silky midrange sheen that a high-end tube microphone, like a Telefunken 251, puts on a sound. The Telefunken 251 is magical -- and so is this rosin. I feel misled by other companies -- it's like someone has been selling me cheap milk chocolate bars while telling me that it is the best fine Belgian chocolate.

  • I got it today! and it's just unbelievable! 3 cheers for you!
    And I also let my best friend at school try it, (he's a violinist), and he agreed that it was amazing.

  • First of all, I would like to let you know how happy I am with my first supply of Baker's Rosin. It is superior to any rosin I have tried, and I have tried many. Thank you for continuing the tradition of making great rosin.

  • When I received your rosin, I rehaired my favorite bow with my best fresh Mongolian hair, applied your Original rosin and started playing. I wholeheartedly agree with everything you describe about your rosin! I know you can't vouch for it's quality for cello use based on your personal experience, but I can. I had the best time- my cello has never produced a more full and pure tone, I had more control of all articulations and types of strokes, I found a new level of control of the entire envelope of each note, and the smoothness and purity of tone on the upper strings was absolutely seductive. Sharon was absolutely right, so I must write her a thank you note, but you deserve my praise for the contribution this great product has undoubtedly made to the artistry of so many. Contributing to musical culture is why I try to do my best work as an instrument technician, and so I now consider you a kindred spirit. On top of that, you have made my own playing more rewarding, too. Thank you!

  • I just received your rosin today, and it's terrific. Thanks so much for making such a wonderful product. I hope to be a customer for many years to come.

  • Like others, I was skeptical that any rosin would make a difference in my playing but was willing to experiment. Well, from the first moment of playing with your rosin on my bow, it was magical. It felt like bowing on velvet and the sound was very rich. I thought it possible it was just wishful thinking but after playing with my various groups shortly thereafter, many people commented on how improved my sound was - so it was really true! Even my violin teacher commented on my sound. So please keep making your rosin!

  • I received your rosin, it's absolutely fantastic. I showed it to two of my colleagues at the University of Houston and they both loved it. Your rosin is undoubtedly the best I've ever used (and I've tried at least a dozen different brands), it produces a resonant, deep, and clear sound.

  • I have not used anything that even comes close to your rosin.
    The bow almost played without my assistance the notes were so clear, especially the double stops I could not feel the rosin at all it just did it's job. As you know I am really allergic to rosin, but I had no nose running or eyes watering, I have not been this free of symptoms ever.
    You are my God.

  • Baker's Original is quite simply the best rosin I have ever tried. Judy didn't know it had arrived yet....and I put it on my freshly cleaned bow, started playing... and she yelled from the next room..."Did you get a new fiddle or something? It sounds better." I am a trained experimental psychologist and I am not easily swayed by subjective opinions... But that is pretty good evidence that your rosin made a big improvement. I asked her what was better about it, and she chose the exact same words as I had in my mind when I heard it..."Louder and smoother." One can't ask for more than that from a rosin.

  • I've used some very fine rosins, and this is far and away the best

  • I have only used the original for now, is absolutely incredible!!! How many times I have I heard that a new and wonderful rosin has been created, and I have become very skeptical. Although your emails and explanations reassured me that there is something very special about your rosin!! I have started by using the Original rosin first and the difference in sound was extraordinary. The previous rosin I had liked was Melos, because of the sound I could produce with it. But the Original rosin influences the sound to a degree that I did not think a rosin could influence the sound. It produces an incredibly lush and vibrant sound. Both my wonderful instrument that I am lucky to own and my bows are very much along that idea of sound anyway, so to have this supported by the rosin is an incredible find!!! I have talked mostly about the sound, because that is how I work but of course the feel of the rosin is wonderful too. It allows great contact with the string!!! Anyway, I must congratulate you and a truly extraordinary product, that one can so easily tell, is world's apart from anything available on the market today. Your rosins, have made an extraordinary difference to my playing and my sound!! They make me VERY HAPPY every time I open the box. They are just so superior in every way! I have shown them to many colleagues, and they are all very impressed. My violin makers here in Vienna, who are VERY skeptical about 'new' rosins on the market, were very surprised by your rosin and felt a real difference in comparison to the other products available. I have played in several different concert halls and different climates over the last weeks and using your rosin has been not only a great pleasure but also a great enrichment of my music making.
