“For the last 30 years, I played on different brands of ligatures, but in January 2017, Eddie Gofman gave me the Silverstein CRYO4 ligature for alto sax to try. It has changed my life! The CRYO4 ligature is the sound I have been looking for years! Now I play only on the CRYO4 ligature, and I love its sound and quality. Every reed sounds great and fresh with the Silverstein CRYO4 ligature! I think this product is the dream of every saxophone player become reality! Thanks for the great Silverstein CRYO4 ligature!” ~ Robert Anchipolovsky
