“After many years of experience with mouthpieces, reeds, and some ligatures, the first time I tried the Silverstein Ligature, I laid all ligatures I have collected over the years and forgot them. You can feel the difference right away – the sound becomes fatter, many colors that were missing from the sound suddenly came out and it was amazing. If I can be honest, I did not believe ligatures affected the sound so much. Now I believe.” ~Dor Assaraf
