Hidersine's is an affordable all-weather rosin, and will certainly do the job for you. It may be chosen for use with the affordable fiberglas student bows sold at Gollihur Music, but don't be shy about considering some other rosins we offer. Hidersine rosin is made in the UK.
Rosin is key in getting a good bowed sound, so don't cheap out on this key ingredient to success, it can last a long time - and isn't very expensive. In fact, some bassists carry two or three different cakes just in case the environment makes another consistency better for that particular situation. When the humidity is high, the more powdery, harder rosin is usually best, and during very dry periods some stickier stuff may be needed.
