The Silverstein Gold ligature is simply fantastic. It responds in a simple and immediate way, improving the sound in a superlative way. The bindings are stable and clean and the dynamism works perfectly from pianissimo (pp) to fortissimo (fff) without any physical effort.
Exceptional and 100% recommended by the youngest to the great professionals.
