Each Silverstein 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.

With a Silverstein ligature, the first thing you will notice is how free the reed becomes, yielding a richer, fuller sound.

The Cryogenic Treatment Process plunges the alloy of the Silverstein Ligature to a chilling -300F, greatly improving characteristics of the ligature by changing the crystal structure of the metal itself. The Cryogenic Process of the metal results in a more refined, homogeneous solid. This has a profound effect on the sound waves that travel through it: sound waves travel much faster and without loss through the more homogenized metal alloy, resulting in a richer, more natural sound with improved resonance. The additional Fine Tuners on the Cryo4 Gold Ligature maximize the effects of the Cryogenic Process to bring you the most refined ligature possible.

The minimalist cord-based ligature liberates the most natural vibrations of the reed. The New Silverstein Ligature takes this concept further. After experimenting with new cord designs and alloys, the Silverstein Ligature has now adapted a cord that has been interspersed with a refined strand - a thinner thread that allows for even less contact and pressure with the reed while maintaining the Ligatures trademark design and grip. This makes all the difference. The redesigned cord allows for greater control, a more dynamic sound, and a richer tone.


• Improved metal alloy for better resonance with a wider range of mouthpiece
• Reduced adjustment nut size with ergonomic design - the smaller profile provides more comfort and ease in usability
• Enhanced fine tuner design with new alloy provides better control and dynamics in sound.
• Entirely redesigned cap with flexible fit and lighter material protects mouthpiece and reed even when ligature is slant mounted.
