“I have tried many ligatures in my 33 years of playing saxophone. I can honestly say that I have been skeptical that a ligature could have a significant effect on my overall sound until I tried the Silverstein Ligatures. I am now able to hear those missing colors in my tone that allow for a more natural saxophone sound. I have always enjoyed free blowing saxophones and to now play on a ligature that allows even more freedom, I am beside myself. Silverstein has definately changed my view of what a ligature is designed to do.” – Marlon Boone
