When comparing the two types of tubas I believe that it is the thickness of the metal that determines how bright or how dark the tuba sounds. I don't believe that the color of the horn would effect the sound of the tuba. If someone was to remove all of the Laquer off of a Laquered tuba, what will it become? A silver tuba. The exact same tuba but only with a different color.
Just my $0.02 cents
