I must agree with Steve Morgan about the Mirafone 181. I've been playing on one for about 2 years now, and I love it!! I recently looked into getting a 186, and I found that my sound on the 186 and my sound on the 181 are very compatable with each other. (When I have the money for a third horn, I'll probably lean towards a 186) You definitely owe it to yourself to try a 181 out.
As far as the Yamaha 822s, it's also a great horn. It has a wonderful and open low register.
All in all, I think your best bet is to try out a bunch of horns and see what you like and feel comfortable with. Best of luck!!!
