    Re: Silver vs. Gold

    Like others here I play both silver and gold plated horns. The only difference I can detect is in the required cosmetic maintainance. Silver plate WILL tarnish, and quite quickly. Gold plate is much less labor intensive. It just very rarely changes its appearance. Given a choice, I will elect for the gold plate. I have, as an example, a gold plated King Liberty made back in 1927 that still looks new, and plays that way too.

    Considering the whole concept of thinking the sound that you want, I wonder if a gold trumpet that inspires a warmer perception of sound would bring out a sound that is actually warmer
