Andrea "Sanctus" is a unique rosin that combines two separate formulas in a single cake. The center part is an enhanced formula based on Andrea's popular "SOLO," and is a physically softer and thicker rosin. The outer part is formulated to have a harder and drier texture, which gives a wonderful balance in sound while protecting the softer center rosin. As with all Andrea rosins, this product is hand-poured; made in the USA.
Sanctus is formulated to provide more possibilities in the sound of stringed instruments. This unique combination of two sophisticated rosin formulas provides the optimum balance for sound and bow control. These formulas have been put into two separate areas in one special rosin cake to show the clear definition of their roles. The outer ring formula has been designed to give a silky smooth playing feel and to produce a focused sound on the strings. The center formula responds and kicks in when the player demands more power and gutsiness from their instrument. The sound of these formulas when combined is noticeably more focused with enhanced tonal strength. Ultimately, it stimulates your musical mind to explore the endless possibilities in your sound.
