Hey folks! have you heard? There's a new automatic bow rosining device on the market.

Violin making trio Aubert, Bridge & Pegg-Bocks have invented a new device for violinists and fiddlers which completely removes the need for them to persistently rosin their bows.

It's called "AutoRosin". It's a clever little device - just a small block of rosin mounted on a spring, which is placed below the strings, just behind the bridge. During normal bowing, the bow hair moves across the strings, but the hair does not make contact with the rosin block. However, when more bow pressure is applied, eg during a heavy concerto, Orange Blossom Special (or playing in a noisy 32-member session circle), the hair now makes contact with the rosin, and maintains a good grip.

It has been tested by violinists and fiddlers alike, and has had excellent reports. There is also a soft felt pad which sits on the violin surface, to catch the rosin dust and keep the instrument clean.

Top violinist Beshua Joll says, "It's really great! Such a time saver!" Virtuoso violinist Hallary Hihn, says, "It's fantastic!" It saves me so much time, and now I don't have to keep faffing around with the violin on my lap, bow in one hand, rosin in the other, all while putting on my make-up before going on stage. I don't need to go through that boring process ever again!"

Ace fiddler Spankie Flavin says, "It's really great! Such a time saver!" Sainted fiddler Maitin Hayrse adds, "Yeah! What he said! Oh, and the other good thing is, thanks to AutoRosin, I've now completely broken my terrible addiction to snorting rosin dust, and my glasses are clearer as a result!"

Other notable fiddlers including Buvin Kerke, Hols Pierrestein, Rally McDaragh, Carl Lizzol and Peemie Topples, all unconditionally endorse the superb AutoRosin. The mighty Hols Pierrestein gives it a double thumbs up!

Aubert, Bridge & Pegg-Bocks expect the product to be on the shelves later this month, reasonably priced at around $300 per cake (but with huge discounts if bought by the barrel)."

I can attest to the benefits and value of this device, everyone should have one.

It's not new, but is little heard of - but I have used it for years - and just LOOK at the reputation and following I have on you tube and social media, 100 gazillion followers, trust Mr. Jim @Worldfiddler  - you can't go wrong with this essential piece of kit.

"Piece of kit" - Mr. Jim tells me, just in case the new device does drop some rosin dust on the belly of your beloved instrument, there is also available, by separate purchase, a "piece of kilt" cloth to dust it down ( that would be Mr. Jim's kilt, not mine )

drummerbunny_pole_dancerD'Oh......  hahahah Jim me lad !

I seriously recommend not copying my mistakes. D'oh - guntohead.JPG

Please make your own, different mistakes, and help us all learn :-)

It's just a little too expensive for my taste.

You should have got @Irv to mock one up on April 1st.

I have been looking for one on eBay but this far unsuccessfully.  I have also been looking for goretex condoms, but no luck there as well.  I did see that Trojan was producing a goretex jacket (perhaps as a promotion).
