“As a saxophonist and professor of music. one of the pillars in my methodology is COMFORT, and I repeat this in all masterclasses and workshops. A lot of musicians don’t know that when your setup is comfortable, the music flows easily, naturally. When I received my first Silverstein ORIGINAL and straddled my mouthpiece, in the first attack I could feel the incredible ease of play throughout extension of the instrument. With the FINE TUNERS of Silverstein I have full control of the “color” of my sound in all occasions like never before. In my opinion, the world of ligatures is now divided into two ages: B.S. and A.S. (before Silverstein Works and after Siverstein Works) Thank you, Team Silverstein for developing such a useful tool for us musicians.” ~Marquinho Sax
