Protect Your Rosin!

Hands up if you’ve ever dropped a brand new rosin only to see it smash before your very eyes. Keep them up if you’ve also taken out a dirty big chip with the frog of your bow. Yup, I thought so. I may not have any advice for the former (except obsessive diligence) but I have a sneaky little trick to avoid that heart-breaking collision between rosin and bow.

It’s as simple as … covering the silver edge of the frog with your thumb! Check out the pic below for a visual:

So easy and so effective!

Bonus tip: Use your rosin as a practice tool. As you run the bow hair over your rosin, practice your bow hold and bowing patterns. Just steer clear of that cheeky little frog!
