Hello all,

I'm wanting to try and potentially buy a Francois Louis Ligature for both my hard rubber and my metal tenor pieces. The store that closest to me charges around $85 for them, vs the $68 on WWBW. My question is this: If I like the ligatures enough to buy them (which I think I will; I've played them in the past and really liked them, just didn't think about buying them back then), would I be better off buying it more expensively at the store, or just getting it online? If these ligatures are really consistent from ligature to ligature, I'd rather not waste the extra money. If anything, I might ask the store if they could just price match the ligatures to the ones on WWBW, but in the situation where that didn't work out, I wanted to hear your guys' opinions and experience with the FL Ligature, and if you've played multiple ones, whether or not they are consistent.

I have never done this with ligatures, but I've also never had the opportunity to. I could imagine that multiple ligatures that were the same kind would play similar, but lots of my saxophone teachers and people that I follow and respect on YouTube have talked about how the same brand/type of ligature can vary slightly as you go from one to the next, which is why I also wanted to get opinions from people on this forum.
