I cannot find the catalog you reference. If "T7" and "T8" denote only a difference in tip opening, it is up to you to decide its application. My idea of "all around playing" might differ widely from yours - in fact, my "all around playing" INCLUDES big band section work. And, depending on the band, I might use my .088" or my .120".
