    I would like to point out I am not a classical player, and only sort of know what I am talking about. I got the Petz rosin with my new upright because it was the most expensive, and that usually means it is the best. After a few months of using it, I found it to be hard and brittle, and difficult to get a good amount on the bow. I went to the local music store to buy some Pop’s, because from previous experience (by leaving the canister on it’s side) I knew it to be extremely soft, and easy to get on the bow. I definitely didn’t get the right strings for bowing( Thomastik Spirocores) and plan to get a string set matched for both next time. My bow is also a fairly cheap brazilwood French bow. I would also like to point out that I live in Washington State, and the description of the Pop’s rosin says it works well for humid climates.I don’t know how much those factors matter, but I really don’t like Petz. Save some money and get some Pop’s .

    I am acclimating to Petz Premium after using the same brand of rosin for 20 years. It does not have quite as much grab my previous brand (less amplitude) but I find that I do not have to apply it as often or keep wiping down my strings. It comes in a large size cake which makes it easy to apply evenly. I use white bow hair and live in a dry climate. I am happy with the sound produced and would purchase this rosin again.
