The recipe of the “veritable” natural Gustave Bernardel rosin is strictly the same from the original
of the 19th century production.
The secret process was first
transferred to the Français family,
famous violin makers in Paris
and New York.
Nowadays, it is still handcrafted
in the same tradition, unit by unit, by Corelli who inherited it from
Jacques and Jean Français.
Strictly selected raw materials come from top quality pine trees, using
the ideal “galipot”
(first sap of the tree).
Gustave Bernardel rosin is wellknown for its perfect purity ; it gets
absolutely no bubbles, which avoids damage of the bow’s horse hair.
Perfectly homogeneous, it does not stick, neither powders.
Its qualities in term of sound emission give Bernardel rosin,
its reputation of excellence :
• very clear and precise attack of the string
• easy production and control of the sound
• ideal for any kind of weather
Its blue pouch, is soft and easy to carry away with the instrument
in the case or in a pocket
