Bow rosining device
« on: Sep 25, 2016, 08:48:37 PM »
New automatic bow rosining device on the market !

Violin making trio Aubert, Bridge & Pegg-Bocks have invented a new device for violinists and fiddlers which completely removes the need for them to persistently rosin their bows.

It's called "AutoRosin". It's a clever little device - just a small block of rosin mounted on a spring, which is placed below the strings, just behind the bridge. During normal bowing, the bow hair moves across the strings, but the hair does not make contact with the rosin block. However, when more bow pressure is applied, eg during a heavy concerto, or Orange Blossom Special, the hair now makes contact with the rosin, and maintains a good grip. It has been tested by violinists and and fiddlers alike, and has had excellent reports. There is also a soft felt pad which sits on the violin surface, to catch the rosin dust and keep the instrument clean.

Top violinist Beshua Joll says, "It's really great! Such a time saver!" Virtuoso violinist Hallary Hihn, says, "It's fantastic!" It saves me so much time, and now I don't have to keep faffing around with the violin on my lap, bow in one hand, rosin in the other, all while putting on my make-up before going on stage. I don't need to go through that boring process ever again!"

Top artist Pitzak Erlman says, "Yeah! What they said! Oh, and the other good thing is, thanks to Auto-rosin, I've now completely broken my terrible addiction to snorting rosin dust, and my glasses are clearer as a result!"

Top interweb pedagogue Eel Tohdd also gives AutoRosin a double thumbs-up!.

Berlin Byron, Buvin Kerke, Spankie Flavin, Duncan Stuart, Volvin Calraith and the mighty Cork O'Manner (of the famous O'Manner method) all unconditionally endorse the superb AutoRosin!

Aubert, Bridge & Pegg-Bocks expect the product to be on the shelves later this month, reasonably priced at around $300 per cake (but with huge discounts if bought by the barrel).

Sounds okay, but I'd really need it to be able to tie my shoelaces for me as well before I'd buy it.

Worthless unless it can tune, finger, and bow your instrument as well.

Bergjans,

Yes, it's just a joke. I have way too much time on my hands :)

Dandelion, what's wrong with the names? I don't get it! ;)

But I've been working on my rosining technique for 40 years. Finally getting good at it. I hear there's a new product which will help one learn vibrato. Its based on milking machines for cows...

Haha!!

But always remember :

Good, clean, sweet vibrato : Polonaise.

Sloppy, wide, wailing vibrato : Mayonnaise

If I gotta give up snorting rosin, then it's not for me.

This gadget is also being discussed on the session.org. Readers may find the level of argument stimulating.

Why note spin a round cake, sort of like a miniature hurdy-gurdy?

You ARE going to repost this on April 1st on the Violin Guild forum on Facebook, right?  We're pretty argumentative here, but those folks are...well... we could have some fun with this.
