Why brass or silver? What's the difference? Does it really matter? Answer: Not really. Brass has a slightly brighter tone, and is less costly to repair when a child accidentally drops it off the High School football bleachers while in marching band. (Yes, that really happened!) Silver, on the other hand, has a smoother tone with a brilliant ringing quality, better suited to more formal play, such as in an orchestra. Most of the really high end professional instruments for that reason tend to be in silver. However, these differences are not hugely significant. Often, it comes down more to what color the player likes best.
