Hi! I love how my bass sound with a really small amount of rosin (still good grip, though). I don't get the full volume as i have with a good swipe with some pop's, but when practicing i love having a very small amount of rosin. With the rosin i always think it sound's scratchy, nasally and thin. Doesn't matter if it's old or brand new pop's, Brand new or old Kolstein soft or Nymans. Maybe i should try a hard rosin? I do put on a good amount when i'm practicing bowing technique, because spiccato and some slur-exercises get's easier. But when i'm done with those exercises i often take the rag and swipe everything off. So my question is: Should i get used to the rosin and try to make a better sound with it or should i practice my strokes without adding rosin? In my hand it's good 'Cause i can't keep taking it on and off everyday!
