Melos Rosin comes straight from Greek pine trees in the Chalkidiki region, and is being produced by experts on the matter. This dark version for viola is a little stickier and allows for a tighter bow grip. Because it's a little more souple, it can easily be used in a colder climate.
Melos rosin is also easy to mix. You can combine light and dark rosin for violin or viola to get the ideal grip and tone quality for your playing style! In comparison with the violin version, this viola rosin is slightly more sticky in order to have sufficient grip on the lower strings.
Some musicians like to switch between light and dark Melos rosin: light rosin for spring and summer, and dark rosin for autumn and winter.
