Silverstein Original 'A-frame' Ligature
View the official sizing guide here
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.
SOUND ADJUSTMENT NUT
The nut adjusts tension on the cord. 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 vice versa.
The pads on the bottom of the bridge are now removable and replaceable. The new bridges have smoother metal feet, reducing the risk of scratching the mouthpiece even when used without the pads. The ligature comes with 2 sets of replaceable EZ-pads.
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 INNOVATION: FINE TUNER
The new Fine Tuners change how the ligature responds to the vibrations of the reed, tuning the focus and colour 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. (Additional Fine Tuners are now available for separate purchase.)
Come with OmniCap that is small enough to fit in a narrow case, secures and protects delicate mouthpiece tip and reed, protects mouthpiece rail, preserves reed moisture, is easily washable and makes no sound when dropped.
ANTI-SLIP PAD (SOLD SEPARATELY)
The Anti-Slip pads are designed to help prevent slippage of ligatures and scratches for those who need to change instruments in the middle of live performances. Sold separately for A-Frame ligatures.
