Scott Litroff –
I’ve played on Silverstein ligatures for all my professional saxophone work for several years. My personal favorites have been the CRYO4 and the HEXA, both fantastic ligatures that bring out a stability and rich tonal quality. I appreciate Silverstein’s attention to detail in their ligatures, the high-quality materials and craftsmanship, and some of the best customer support in the music industry.
While I still love the CRYO4 and HEXA models, the Titanium ligature is on an entirely different level. The first thing I noticed is that the ligature is incredibly light. While on the mouthpiece, it feels as if nothing is there. The feet contacting the top of the mouthpiece have been redesigned to a cylindrical shape, and it was slightly easier to adjust the ligature to my desired position (though I never had difficulty doing so with the CRYO4 or HEXA). I am very pleased that Silverstein maintained the six cords from their HEXA model, as I feel it makes the articulation noticeably easier and provides a bit more center to my tone than I found with the CRYO4.
The response while playing on the Titanium ligature is incredibly centered, with less resistance than I usually expect from my current setup. There is a clarity in the sound that I’ve never felt quite so prominently with any other ligature. It was almost jarring at first, but I very quickly fell in love with it. I have since been playing on the Titanium ligature for both classical and jazz setups, and the results have been the same. I still sometimes go back to the CRYO4 and HEXA ligatures (both in gold), and while I still enjoy them as well, I can’t deny how much I enjoy the ease and clarity in the Titanium comparatively. I feel that Silverstein has made something very special in the Titanium ligature and I expect to happily engage in many projects with it.
