Project Description

Gaetano Falzarano

Quote: The Eddie Daniels Expressions Platinum model ligature manages to give me a dark sound and excellent projection.
Thanks to the air channel that does not crush the reed table, it allows it to vibrate correctly, facilitating both staccato and tied playing. I am fully satisfied with this model and I recommend everyone to test it.
