Does rosin get worse when it’s getting older?
I never thought about this question until recently. A few days ago the bunnystomper talked about a certain brand of rosin and stated that it ‘….tends to flake and break, and gets slippery and glassifies on the strings really quickly, especially as it gets old’.
So I did a web search and there actually is some talk about replacing rosin after a certain amount of time. Someone even states that Pirastro advices to buy a new chunk every year (that would suit them…).
What are your ideas? I’ve had my chunck for over 15 years, no complaints, but maybe it is like with replacing strings: when you do it you find out you should have done it long before…..
