Baritone PPT signature 7 compared to Yanagisawa 5 hard rubber

I currently play the stock Yanagisawa 5 hard rubber on my baritone.
I like the sound but it is missing a bit the deep firm tone on the lower notes.

In other posts I read that going to a higher tip opening would get a more full tone, so I wonder how does the PPT signature 7 sound and play, compared to the stock Yani 5 mpc ?
In the past, someone lend me a Selmer S80 C* to try, but I did not like the tone much, and also it was difficult to go from p to f dynamics, it seemed very quit and restricted.
I was also able to lend an Otto Link Super tone master 7 for a day or 2, and with a reed a bit sanded down I was well able to cope with the larger tip opening after a bit of getting used to it, it also had a more firm tone.

I particulary like the sound of the baritone in the youtube clip of the Quadraphones

On timestamp 0:40 another nice example

What are your thougts, would a PPT be a good switch from my stock Yani, to get to this kind of sound, or would you recommend something else ?

That's some fearsome baritone sound. I can't make out what she's using. Possibly a Selmer soloist. It's a small fleeting image on a phone.
I get quite a bit of oomph out of a Selmer S80 C* pp to ff, using a Rico Royal 5 or a Vandoren blue 4.
The vandorens have a longer vamp and feel quite different.
It may be more about reeds than mouthpiece.
The Yani 5 is wider, by several thousandths, than the S80 C*. In general a smaller tip needs a harder reed.
I think experimenting with reeds might be the way to go to find your sound.
Bear in mind though that a recorded sound might not be a true representation of the "in the room" experience.

I don't thinkl that is necesssarily the case.
so I wonder how does the PPT signature 7 sound and play, compared to the stock Yani 5 mpc ?
Probably a lot better (I would say that) but not necessarily due to the tip opening being wider.

But how would you compare it to the Yanagisawa hard rubber 5 mpc, does it have a darker/brighter/fuller/louder/softer sound.

I also see that is not available at this moment, when do you think it will become available again ?

Shotly after you order one probably. ;)
The incidence of players having used a Yani 5 and a PPT is probably very low.
