Kevin,

Try out the string / shoe lace as your ligature.

Relatively inexpensive and you have more control over the kinds of sound(s) you want.


You asked re shoelace/string:
"isn't it hard to articulate with it and give a muffled kind of sound?"

Try it for yourself and find out. Make it a very interesting and fun experiment. Try different length strings / laces, different types of string / laces; find what works for you.


Also, string is easy to replace if lost - and you don't have to wait for it to be delivered by mail order.  :)

I often use white cotton string and love the sound and response.
