At PIRASTRO we offer high quality rosins named after specific sets of strings. The engineers at PIRASTRO calculate how sticky a rosin needs to be to properly bow each string. They consider every strings core, tension, length, and surface to produce a rosin that blends beautifully with each set. Find out which rosin matches your favorite PIRASTRO string.
