Thanks Bill I didn't mean that question to be directed specifically at you but, appreciate the reply just the same.

The question still stands how long does a cake of rosin last you?

I ask this because it never ceases to amaze me how many people ask this question. I guess I could understand why it would be replaced if like Beeswing it was dropped (I haven't done that) About 20 years back I used a cake on a wretched bow that my aunt had lying around for 20 years so, very nearly it was likely that the cake was at least 40 years old. I used it on the bow after scratching up the surface and the wreck of a bow drew a pretty fair tone considering it had likely lost most of it's hair (at least 50 %) So, do some of you actually go through a cake or is it that you think there is something wrong with the particular cake you have?

Ms. Stone - I haven't tried Tartini green, only Symphony and Solo. They are both topnotch. The Jade is also super, and I use it if the violin I'm playing needs a bit more edge. Seems to me it's good to have a few different rosins on hand, with different properties.   Larry.
