“I received a package from Silverstein Works that looked like a box containing a precious diamond. When I opened it the ligature inside was nothing less than Beautiful! It was the new CRYO4 Ligature. I could not wait to try it! I placed it on my mouthpiece and immediately proceeded to play. My immediate reaction was WOW!!!! It was incredibly free blowing. My lower register of my Tenor sax just sang to me, and the mid to Altissimo played smoothly like I never played before. This ligature also enables me to practice more and play shows without being tired! It also allows me to take my music to another level. Thank you Silverstein for creating one of the BEST LIGATURES that is second to none in the world!!!” ~ Enrico Galante
