Funny to mention the Yanagisawa metal, I used to play one--a 9. It was a very flexible piece actually, but I thought the square chamber left something to be desired. Anyhow, thanks for the info. Maybe something like the V16 but with a slightly smaller chamber would be interesting---but its pretty good as is. Is the Jody Jazz about the same as a V16 in terms of chamber size? I have the impression that is true, but I find the V16 brighter than the Jody Jazz.
