"The right instrument can be your ship; the right mouthpiece, its captain. Reeds can be the great wind in your sails and still, if those sails are found wanting your journey may yet waver"
The Silverstein Ligature has several special features that are unique to its eye-catching form. The patented design is such that the Ligature covers a minimum amount of surface area on the reed, while still being able to maintain an incredibly firm grip.
The Tension Adjustment pulls up (rather than just pinching the sides like most other ligatures) and the remarkable design allows the tension to ease throughout the cord evenly over time. The result is the purest sound formed from the natural vibrations of the reed.
The custom engineered cord meanwhile is designed to facilitate the natural vibrations without adding to them in any way, and the core has been constructed and quality tested to never stretch.
