Made in Germany, this rosin is promoted for its hypoallergenic properties; it contains no known allergens and is non-irritating. Geipel Anti Allergy rosin comes in a plastic container with a cloth cover and it is suitable for violin and viola.
Rosin is made from tree sap and creates friction between the strings and the bow. Rosin causes the bow hair to stick to the string and pull it, which in turn creates the sound. It’s a good idea to keep a spare rosin stashed away in case it is misplaced or dropped.
