Sound is always personal and a difficult thing to describe.

Jumbo Java has a very high baffle and is very bright, and it can be like "metal" sound as you said.

SuperSession has a medium/low baffle and has a warmer sound.

Now remember I mostly use Fibracell, so they can sound in different shades when other reeds are used.

Through my 3 plus years learning and playing I have moved to more open mouthpieces and didn't put in the effort of selling off the ones I don't really use any more.   Some pieces came with the horns, so I am keeping them as the "original equipment".

For soprano
   I like both Barone and Sugal's pieces. They have that nice, dark vintage sound, which is not at all kenny-G-like, ever heard of Sidney Bechet?.  But I loaned the Sugal to my sister and the Barone is a little too (7*) open for me now to play comfortably. So I am mostly playing the Brancher, which is free-blowing but a bit bright for me.
   The Selmer metal, original Yani 5 and Caravan all too closed for me.

For alto
   I like Sugal Super Classic II because it is very free-blowing, bright but not edgy, but it is very picky about reeds, and harder to control. Super Session is warmer, not quite as loud. Java is too bright, not really my taste. The rest are too closed.

For tenor
   The Links and the two Berg Larsens came with the Super20 tenor, not my choice.  The Links 7 is a little stuffy (maybe too closed for me) and not interesting sound for me.  The metal Berg Larsens have high/medium baffles, bright and loud, not my sound either.  So I got the Jody Jazz DV, it's very free and easy blowing, not too bright, not edgy at all.  I am getting a JJ DV NY, which should be a little warmer sound. I love warm and saxy tenor sound, though loud and screaming R&B tenor sounds great too.

I am not a pro, so . . . . my advice is only as good as my embouchure
