I voted "just the one" even though I have two rosin cakes. One is for my violin (had it since 1999) and one is for my viola (purchased in 2005 or 2006), so it's "just the one" for each of my instruments.

I voted 6-12. I don't use them all, of course, I have settled on two kinds I really like and use them on different bows.

I forgot they were called cakes. Soon someone will reply that they've got hundreds of pieces because they dropped a cake on the floor! facepalm

I probably got 8-10, but I only use my Eudoxa and Liebenzeller rosin. 3 of the cakes are from a purchase of a chinese violin back in 2013 or 2014. I guess the seller thought I was going to play that fiddle like crazy or something lol. That or he tried to get rid of a bad stock, cause the rosin was pretty bad.

Ha, ha... can't get enough of those rosin threads 🙂 Admittedly, it's one of those addictive purchases that won't cause us to have to re-mortgage the family home.

I've got 2 (Fiddlerman Premium and Larica gold 1) so I have some keeping up with the Joneses to do here!

Thanks for creating the poll. For those of you who don't realize it you can do that yourself using the poll icon below the reply field.

I voted over a dozen but only because of the Fiddlershop.b-slap

I wondered if you would, lol! facepalm

I just ordered some Pirastro Goldflex, which puts me into the 6-12 category, so I should have made the poll answers amendable.

I realise now that there's a poll section where I could have put this and which is looking underused. Perhaps it is a little bit hard to find.

I'll try to think of another poll question.

I forgot all about the poll question section. I don't suppose it makes much of a difference but I'll move it there.
