Anil Salliel on the DV Tenor 9* & POWER RING MT1 and HR* Tenor 9*

“The DV series offers great design and great craftsmanship. For any style of music, the sound range is very beautiful. I love the hand work and the finish, I can say the same about the POWER RING Ligature.”

“You can play both jazz and funk with the HR* series and the altissimo is excellent without having to overblow. Take care of your mouthpiece because each one is hand-crafted…..a beautiful and great mouthpiece”
