“I play the Silverstein Cryo4 ligature since its first arrival on the German market. I was immediately taken by the free and natural flow of air it allows, the warm and round sound through all registers and the flexibility in articulation. Absolutely outstanding! I would not go too far if I say that this ligature changed my playing and added new possibilities for colors in sound and nuances in the pronunciation of the musical language. This ligature is my ideal and versatile companion for orchestra playing as well as chamber music and solo literature. Also, I can definitely play on more reeds than before and they last longer. Thank you Silverstein Works for this fantastic achievement!”
