D'Addario's light rosin is a suitable choice for young musicians. This all-natural blend is manufactured in New York by D'Addario and comes with a plastic grip for easy access. It is the perfect size for instrument cases and comes with a cardboard wrap to prevent further stick-age. Light rosins are suitable for high-stringed instruments like violin and viola. The best time to use light rosin is the warm months, due to the rosin being harder and less sticky than dark rosin. Rosin, for best usage, should be switched out for different seasons, depending on the instrument.
