FREE THE REED
The right instrument can be your ship; the right mouthpiece, its captain. Reeds can be the great wind in your sails and still, if those sails are found wanting your journey may yet waver.The Silverstein Ligature has several special features that are unique to its eye-catching form. The patented design is such that the Ligature covers a minimum amount of surface area on the reed, while still being able to maintain an incredibly firm grip. The Tension Adjustment pulls up (rather than just pinching the sides like most other ligatures) and the remarkable design allows the tension to ease throughout the cord evenly over time. The result is the purest sound formed from the natural vibrations of the reed. The custom engineered cord meanwhile is designed to facilitate the natural vibrations without adding to them in any way, and the core has been constructed and quality tested to never stretch.
BEAUTY UNLEASHES THE BEAST.
The eye-catching design of the Silverstein Ligature does more than just attract attention. Its form is a minimalistic approach to the concept and purpose of a ligature’s function.From the grand concept of liberating a reed’s natural vibrations, to the execution of the Ligature that does that and more, this is a machine worth your attention. The Moisture Retention feature provides real constant moisture directly to your reed. Soaking the Ligature before mounting can help reduce reed warpage during a performance by more than 50%, and helping your reeds last twice as long.
THE REVOLUTION: CRYO®
The Cryogenic Treatment Process plunges the alloy of the Silverstein Ligature to a chilling -300°F, greatly improving characteristics of the ligature by changing the crystal structure of the metal itself: Resulting in a richer, more natural sound with improved resonance.
THE 2ND EVOLUTION: DOTTED CORD
Interspersed cord with a refined strand – a thinner thread for even less contact and pressure with the reed while maintaining the Ligature’s trademark design and grip. This makes all the difference for greater control, a more dynamic sound, and a richer tone.
The difference can be seen in comparison tests that clearly show the more defined harmonic partials of our Ligature, indicating a richer, fuller sound. No other ligatures can make that claim.
THE INNOVATION: FINE TUNER
The new Fine Tuners change how the ligature responds to the vibrations of the reed, tuning the focus and color of your sound to give you unprecedented control and flexibility. With it, you can adjust your sound to perfectly accentuate the music you play at any time.
Each Ligature is hand made in the USA using the finest materials. The custom cord is created with the same technology and manufacturing process as the cords used on the “Sky Crane” that lowered the Mars Rover onto the surface of another planet.
