Ask a Question

The Silverstein Works Original T-Frame ligature (the Prelude) is a fantastic option for players wanting the response and feel of a quality Silverstein ligature at a lower price. This is the H10T, designed to fit the larger hard rubber size tenor sax mouthpieces (Vandoren, Otto Link, Selmer, etc.).

 

Harmonic Partials

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 the ligature, indicating a richer, fuller sound.

 

Sound Adjustment Screw

Main screw has a unique mechanism to convert turning torque to pushing force. By tightening less, the sound gets darker and a reed vibrates more. It also compensates thickness of a reed. If a reed is too thin, tightening more makes the reed sound like a thicker reed - and vise versa.

 

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.

 

Craftsmanship

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 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.
