Two patented harmonic enhancers enrich this ligature’s sound by providing synergistic resonance with the mouthpiece. Stronger projection is achieved through the overall increase in harmonics. Five cords give a comfortable resistance and rapid response, with just the right amount of focus to maintain a powerful sound. The crystal decorations also add an extra touch of beauty.
- White Gold plating (18k) adds a touch of brightness to the sound.
- Champagne Gold plating (18k) gives a warm, complex, and vibrant sound.
- NEW! Patented Rocking Bridge
Gen. 5 Silverstein ligatures are distinguished by a completely redesigned bridge. The rocking action of the bridge automatically achieves an optimal alignment with your mouthpiece. And, the elongated feet provide secure grip to prevent slipping, even when quickly changing mouthpieces. The direct contact of the bridge feet on the mouthpiece acts as resonance plates, which further integrates your setup for maximum and eﬃcient sound production.
** All Silverstein ligatures can be sized and adjusted for a precise fit on your unique mouthpiece. **

FOR MODEL SELECTION, SEE SIZING CHART
If SOUND is your primary concern, then we recommend NOT to use the rocking bridge’s black rubber shoes included with the ligature.
The sole purpose of the rubber shoes is to prevent potential minor scratches on your mouthpiece’s finish. While these pads provide protection to the mouthpiece, they also absorb sound energy which can noticeably reduce the ligature’s performance and aﬀect timbral quality and response.
Old-World Ingenuity Meets 21st Century Design
Every Silverstein ligature includes these standard features:
HARMONIC PARTIALS: The first thing you will notice is how free the reed becomes, resulting in increased harmonic partials for depth of sound.
2ND EVOLUTION CORD: Improved cord technology results in a thinner thread for even less contact and pressure on the reed.
TONAL CONTROL: New fine tuners change how the ligature responds to the vibrations of the reed, tuning the focus and color of your sound to give unprecedented control and flexibility.
SOUND ADJUSTMENT: The nut regulates tension on the cord. By tightening less, the reed vibrates more for a darker sound.
PRECISION FIT: Easily customize the ligature using a standard hex wrench.
HAND-FINISHED: The elegant design and craftsmanship speaks for itself.
