We were first alerted to this premium rosin by the great violinist Alexander Balanescu who told us of the great clarity and power that this rosin brought.


Is the most versatile having especially well-balanced properties. The tone  is full, round and warm, yet also has clarity, brilliance and transparence. It is flexible and best suited to obtain a variety of tonal colours from the instrument.

For the choice of the degree of hardness is: the softer degrees softens sharpness of the instrument, the harder provides greater clarity and is to be preferred for solo playing.

For selecting the degree of hardness, note the  following:

The Liebenzeller Metal Rosin is produced in the hardness I (hard) –  VI (soft) :

The  Liebenzeller Metall-Kolophonium is produced in focussed handwork on the basis of pure larch resin, to which selected metals are added in a special process under consideration of cosmic rhythms. This creates special sound and playing characteristics. The selection of metal additives enables further differentiation and thereby a variety of tone colours allowing the typical character of the instrument being more clearly expressed.

Since nearly 40 years ago it has been produced in the Tycho–Brahe-Laboratory in Unterlengenhardt in the northern Black Forest. Following a suggestion of Rudolf Steiner the formula was created in an intensive research process in Dr. Franz Thomastik’s violin workshop in Vienna together with Ludwig Kremling. This work has been continued since 1972 by Renate Schmidt in collaboration with many musicians and has formed the basis for the production of Liebenzeller Metal Rosin.

In autumn 2009, Renate Schmidt passed her enterprise on to Hansguenter Kraushaar who was thoroughly introduced by her to her special production process. Based on the transferred knowledge and the sharing of her personal experience, he is now producing it with devotion and profound mindfulness.

In this way the worldwide cherished Rosin continues to be available in its approved quality.

The distinct properties of the Liebenzeller Metal Rosin are characterized by:

  • easy and consistent articulation
  • reduction of background noise
  • relative tolerance towards humidity and temperature fluctuations, low formation of dust
  • very economical use
  • good tolerability at rosin allergy

Musically, it facilitates an intense relationship to the instrument. The improved tone of the instrument enhances the artist’s joy whilst playing music and also greatly benefits beginners. Long-standing and proficient musicians experience an unexpected richness of tone of their instrument and even discover hitherto unimagined facets of their instrument.

The Liebenzeller Metal Rosin is currently manufactured with the following metal additions: Gold, Silver, Meteoric Iron, Copper.
