    Anyone have any experience in comparing the playing characteristics of a Yamaha 6310 Z to a Schilke S42L or even a fixed bell S42.
    Any thoughts,ideas or comments would be greatly appreciated.

    I have played them both.
    To me, the 6310 Z plays and feels more like a B6 than the S42.
    It has, to me, a thinner sound than either the B6 or the S42.
    I think the S42 is a little stiffer than the B6 with a little more centered sound.
    In my opinion the 6310 Z does not favorably compare with the S42 or the B6.

    This is re: an S42, not the S42L
    Also, there is just something about how the Schilke FEELS in your hands.
