In that respect he can be correct... how many people THINK they sound to an audience is not how they ACTUALLY sound to an audience.
I have sat next to great players that I have heard many times and been SHOCKED by how they sound when you sit along side them. They know how to get results.
That is how you learn how it is REALLY done !!

I haven't recoded myself in a long time, so right now I really don't know how I sound at a distance.

Just wondering - in what way did they sound different?  You're talking about being familiar with someone's distance sound first, and then experiencing their close up sound.

I'll freely admit the reason I bought a Silversonic 2B is because of the gold wash bell and end crooks. I liked the look, and turns out I like how it sounds and plays too.

I also really like (and prefer) the Sterling Plus Bach 16 I bought recently. I don't own a silver plated horn, but I've played a colleague's silver plated 3B/F in a low-key quintet setting and really liked it...but that probably has more to do with the 3B/F than the plating.

I also like brass horns. I enjoy trying horns made from different materials, but I haven't tried to analyze them beyond 'yup, I still suck' and 'yup, I still suck and oh cool it sounds neat.' I'm enjoying reading about the technical analysis of the horns and materials, it's pretty cool even if it's (IMO) for poops and giggles.

Without reading 99% of the back and forth on engineering terms of art....it seems like a few folks name dropped modulus of elasticity and elastic materials without explaining A) what they are, B) how the terms are used in a materials science sense, C) how the terms differ in colloquial use, and D) why anyone should care in this application. I.e....elastic materials can be interpreted as stretchy rubber bands in sweatpants (e.g. 'elastic cuffs'). Seems to me like a huge argument could've been easily avoided by not assuming everyone has taken classes on mechanics of materials...

I will reply via PM. Professional ethics inhibit my public response. Hope that is okay.
