Forgive me for going off topic. I bought a BN Guardala (018XX) new from WW&BW. I had 2 BN's and a silver plate to choose from. The one I bought had extremely high key heights, but as compared to the other two has a sound that seems to envelope the player...from behind or in front of the horn. Lately, as I've started playing again and am aware that there is nothing Selmer-like about the sound, and that expression is limited compared to my YTS-61. The Guardala has no sizzle, and something of an unpleasant sound compared to a late VI. I guess I'm asking if anyone here has experienced this or has any thoughts.
