Re: Difference between silver and brass tenor sax
Some companies claim there is a difference in sound between finishes, I think silver may be brighter in tone. My primary concern with silver is the tarnish that builds up. If it's a student playing it, it may end up looking bad.
My alto is silver plated and hard to keep clean after ten years. My lacquer finished tenor still looks good after a decade of usage.
I'm looking at new YTS-82ZII EX Custom on WWBW. There is no price difference between the silver one and the regular brass one.
What is the difference? Is it just personal preference? Is one more mellow and one more bright? Aesthetics?
Thanks in advance.
