Personally, I do not like the sound characteristics of silver horns. I find that silver adds more brightness to the sound than I'd prefer. Although Hirsbrunners are very well-made instruments and they play really well, it is the sound that I am not sold on.
I much prefer brass lacquer or, depending on the horn and the thickness of the metal, NO lacquer.
