There are simply too many variables involved in a question like this, the most important of which is you, the player, let alone the fact that “ bright” or “ warm” are relative and personal concepts.

I have owned and played Zephyrs of this vintage. The fact that it is silver plated is totally immaterial when it comes to sound. But of course there are plenty of folks out there that say both things , some say silver is bright and some say silver is warm and some say that it is dull (a girl once came to my house to test a Mark VI and she literally said that she could “ feel” the thickness of the few microns of silver plate under her fingers!).

I play a 1970 Super 20 with a mouthpiece that most would call bright ( Brancher J27 ) and get plenty of dark sound.

Anyway, you will receive tons of recommendations and get a long list of names and in the end you still will have to try what works for you.
