My Yamaha YEP-642 has a beautiful sound, but it seems "tinney", particularly on the higher notes. I've heard euphonium CD's that sound more mellow and soft. How would the compensating Besson or Wilson compare to the Yamaha, speaking only in terms of the "mellow" sound? I've tried several different mouthpieces, but the sound I'm seeking doesn't seem to depend upon anything except the instrument itself.

I'd appreciate some input from those of you who know.
