Product ID: SS4MetalM
Give your reed and instrument the purest and most natural sound with a ligature that doesn't restrict its natural vibrations. The Silverstein Ligature.
The first thing you will notice is how free the reed becomes. The difference can also be seen in laboratory comparison tests that clearly show the much more defined harmonic partials of our Ligature, indicating a richer, fuller sound.
The 2nd Evolution: The 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 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 piece by piece 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.
The Revolution: CRYO
The Cryogenic Treatment Process plunges the alloy of the Cryo4 Gold 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 Medium Metal size will fit many larger metal alto sax mouthpieces (Otto Link), as well as most "standard size" tenor sax metal mouthpieces. We stock these in the the classic Brushed Silver and Cryo4 Gold, with Carbon Black available as a special order. We do our best to keep these sizes in stock, but should you happen to place an order for one we don't have, you will be notified immediately.
