 Try before you buy?

I'm somewhat interested in trying out a couple of new ligatures that the local stores don't carry, but they're a bit on the pricey side for me. I'd be able to buy one, but not all of the ones I'm interested in, and even so, if I liked one, I would not really need the others.

I know with string instruments, a lot of the stores will send you, say, a box of bows to try out for a week and allow you to buy the one you wish to keep, and return the rest to them. Are there any stores out there which offer a similar deal for clarinet accessories?

Also, just because I'm here, has anyone used either a Vandoren Klassik or a Silverstein Works ligature? I've been using a Rovner Light (the dark makes my clarinet quite fuzzy) and got to try a Klassik at a convention a couple years ago. I did like it, but that was also playing for about five minutes.

Edit: I'm in the United States.
