Rosin MILLANT-DEROUX Claire with velvetine
Accessoire pour instruments à cordes
Original title: Colophane MILLANT-DEROUX Claire avec velventine
Rosin for Violin, Viola and Cello
This natural rosin is a good balance between the classic brown rosin, with its suave, and the new Rosin 2000, with its robust and brilliant sound.
It was the French luthier Sébastien-Auguste Deroux who was at the origin of this renowned rosin. Born in Mirecourt in 1848, he moved to Paris in 1884. At the same time, he created a rosin he called Rosin Deroux.
M. Deroux had only one child, a girl named Blanche, who married a certain M. Leon Millant. He himself was not a luthier but their two sons, Roger and Max, became the luthier and took over their grandfather's rosin factory when he died in 1919.
In 1925, Roger and Max improved the quality of rosin to increase the bow's grip on the strings of musical instruments and simultaneously reduce rosin dust. It was at this time that they attached their name to that of Mr. Deroux and they gave its double name to Rosin Millant-Deroux under which she is known since. They also created the emblem of the cat playing the cello, which they placed in the center of its lid.
During the 1950s, American and Japanese customers began calling this Rosin Cat Brand - this nickname still survives.
Mr. Bernard Millant succeeded his father Max and his uncle Roger, continuing to produce the famous rosin until December 1975. Since then, Mr. Snorri Thorvaldsson, the famous violinist, has ensured the production and developed new rosins while keeping the spirit of the original formula. Five years ago, his son Alexandre Thorvaldsson took over control of the company and is working to produce the best rosin that exists. It is still entirely produced in a centuries-old farm, located in a small village about fifty kilometers east of Lyon.
