“I am very traditional in my selection of ligatures. I have tried many but I was totally surprised when I tried the Silverstein Ligature. There seems to be more low end and air in the sound, and it is consistent throughout the range of the horn. A ligature has to have the right balance of free blowing and resistance – this ligature has it.”
