Oyez, oyez: Due to COVID conditions, production of highly popular Pops' rosin is subject to limited delivery and production delays. This fine product is made in the USA by a small business, and can not be rushed or sourced elsewhere. While we respectfully await our deliveries of Pops', we request you limit your purchase to TWO Pops' per order, so we may serve the largest possible number of our customers. If your order comes through for a larger quantity, we will reduce the quantity to 2 and refund the rest. We appreciate your understanding, and will remove the limitation as soon as we are receiving Pops' in pre-COVID quantities.
NOW, HEAT-SEALED FOR ULTIMATE FRESHNESS - Available ONLY at Quantum Bass Center, the resource for the most select, innovative bass accessories since 2011.
The original Pops' Bass Rosin, still made in Houston! Since we are located just a few miles from the Pops' factory and receive direct deliveries immediately when Pops' is made, we always have the freshest batch available to pass along to you. Seriously! It doesn't dry out on a cross-country or global shipment, nor does it sit on our shelf an undisclosed period of time - we are a very high-volume supplier of Pops' to bassists (and entire orchestra sections) worldwide, so our high product turnover ensures we frequently receive deliveries, always from the latest batch.
What's more, we (uniquely among dealers) invest the labor and material to heat-seal each individual cake, so it reaches you as fresh as when it was made - yet we still sell it for less!
Choose this item if you are making a one-time purchase, or, if you would like to set up regular automatic shipments of Pops' in any quantity, we have a separate inventory item for that function. Pops' has no waxes or fillers, mighty string-gripping power along with an almost mystical ability to weld bow hair together unless properly applied, adheres readily to all surfaces of your bass, and is suitable for all climates that are suitable for bass playing. It also comes out of its container in amazing, spontaneous sculptural shapes known as "Pops'sicles" - no other rosin can claim the entertainment value of Pops' on a warm day.
Q: Are there any internet retailers or stores who have any fresher Pops' rosin?
A: No. Pops' rosin is made in Houston and we receive deliveries immediately, always from the most recent batch, since we are also in Houston and Pops' is always in demand.
Q: I always thought the name was POP'S rosin.
A: This misnomer is so common, there are even retailers who don't know the proper name of the product - but product knowledge is one of the reasons you are shopping here, and not there! Actually, since Pops' rosin was named for its creator, the late POPS, bassist in the Houston Symphony (and friend of several of our bassist friends), and his name was Pops and not Pop, the proper name of the most popular bass rosin is Pops'.
Q: I heard it's called POPS because it's sticky and makes your bow attack pop on the strings.
Q: Can I get a dealer discount for purchasing in quantity?
A: Quantum Bass Center is a dealer, not a distributor, of Pops', and already sells Pops' at retail for less than most dealers. We are happy to supply you with any quantity, subject to availability, but can not offer a volume discount. All cakes of Pops' shipped from Quantum Bass Center are heat-sealed and will have our dealer label on the container.
Q: My sealed packaging seems to be too sealed/not sealed enough
A: Thanks for the feedback. All the packages are sealed so air can't circulate and dry out your new rosin, but not all of them achieve a vacuum, due to the limits of the small heat-sealing machine. As our unique investment in each cake of Pops' continues to grow in popularity, thanks to your support, we'll consider moving up to a commercial packaging machine, so the packages will look more uniform.
Q: Do you think my rosin will stay fresh until I open the sealed packaging?
A: Yes. Yes, in fact, we do. That's the point of sealing the packages, you see.
