“I have always been seeking quality ligature to improve my sound. Ever since I tried out my very first original Silverstein ligature, I fell in love with it. I love the flexibility of the ligature and how it offers for my tone and response. I’m very impressed with how it balances my sound and I use it on all of my horns. It gives me great pleasure to be able to focus more on the art of making beautiful music.”
