    After trying a number of new horns I have decided that i will be going with
    the newn Yammi 8310Z. The only problem is that after a good couple ours of testing the laquer and silver finishes I can't decide which to go with. From a performance stand point they both seem almost identical. There is now way around it the silver is brighter in sound, the laquer a little darker. Just wondering if there are any 8310Z players out there, and what there experiences might have been. I'm leaning towards the sound of the laquer at this point. I don't have any experience with heavy caps and am wondering if I could darken the sound of the silver with heavy caps and or differnt mouthpiece. Either way both horns are beautiful to play.

    68 Flair.........and soon to be 8310Z

    I preferred the blow of the lacquer version. But I guess it's just personal preference.

    One thing to keep in mind...the lacquer can always be stripped. Then you'll have a horn that plays almost identically to the silver. Besides, lacquer is cheaper. :D

    Actually went back yesterday with a friend and tried them both again and it looks like it will be the lacquer model. Thanks for your opinion.
