What They Are Saying
“Oleg’s products have completely transformed not only my playing but my sound as well. When I moved from a standard ligature to the Olegature, there was an immediate and noticeable resonance and brilliance shift in my sound, as well as the ability to subtly color my sound based on how the ligature is adjusted on the mouthpiece .

When I tried Oleg’s tenor neck on my factory silver Selmer Mark VI, the entire horn was transformed. Responsiveness, intonation and resonance all opened up on the horn, as well as the freedom and ability to flow into the altissimo registers. Oleg’s hard rubber “Contempo” tenor mouthpiece, which I was one of the first artists to play it, again completely opened up new dimensions on my horn and in my playing. The ease of response, available colors and textures, and extensively broad dynamic range is just wonderful. Finally, and probably most significantly, I recently received Oleg’s masterpiece of a tenor saxophone, which he made for me in a matte silver plating with polished engraving and key-work. This is the most incredible saxophone I’ve EVER played. Oleg’s genius in acoustics shine in all his products, but with the saxophone, it’s profound. Beyond being a work of art itself as a saxophone, the intonation, not only of the sounding notes, but the passive harmonics within each note is the best I’ve ever played. It’s even resonance, dynamics, even intonation throughout the range of the horn and way into the altissimo registers, and color are unparalleled to anything I’ve ever played.” – Mark Fox

What They Say
“con Olegature sono riuscito ad avere un bilanciamento migliore tra basso e alto registro, a livello di vibrazione dell’ancia. Ma soprattutto la cosa che mi piace di piu’è che il suono adesso ha molto piu’attacco !”

“With the Olegature I managed to have a better balance between low and high register, at the level of vibration of the reed. But above all, the thing I like the most is that the sound now has much more attack! “
– Alessandro Bertozzi

What they Are Saying:

“Oleg’s horns are simply the best I’ve ever played. The tone, pitch, response and ultimately the blend with other instrumentalists they allow me is unprecedented. The beauty of them is that the “sweet spot” of each note is exactly the pitch center as well. In other words, the horn “slots” perfectly and also has the same overtone signature and presence/color in every register and every dynamic. This allows me to decide exactly how bright or dark I want the horn to be based on my mouthpiece setup, embouchure or whim! Most importantly though, because of all these factors, I am free to express musical ideas freely and fluently. These horns are a joy to play.” – Jimmy Bowland
