Fiddlerman, I rosin my bows for 10-15 times when I first got them and probably played about 4 - 5 hours till I rosin it again last night.
I rosin it again tonight, but it sounded horrible, like someone had been screaming so much that his/her voice got hoarse.I guessed the theory applies to rosin as well: too much of anything is not good.
Since I only rosin my new bows 10, 15 times and the fiddlerman said he rosin his a good 5 minutes, so I yesterday morning I did one of them two minutes -- it sounded great. Later at night, I rosin it two more minutes, then it is powdery, still after I practiced for 1.5 hours. I guessed i either have magic bow or magic rosin LOL. so, i decided to rosin the other for two minutes.
Ok, I will add to the confusion. I rosin my bow about 10 to 12 strokes every hour or so. I played on and off yesterday about 4 or 5 hours. A fair amount of dust under the bridge and just a little on the bottom of the fingerboard. There does seem to be a layer on the strings. I am tempted to scrape it off but I resist and use a towel to wipe it off. I start very softly and gradually increase the pressure. The strings start to squeal, sounds awful! Is there a better way to remove this rosin? I never get it all off, the strings near the bridge are white with rosin deposits.
