Subject: Leblanc Paperclip Bb Contra & Selmer Paris Rosewood Bb Contra

Besides $3,000 and the shape, what are the differences in these horns? I would
figure the Selmer sounds better, since it is made out of wood and not metal.
The Leblanc seems more practical, because it is looped and not straight. Can
someone with experience on both respond? (or anyone for that matter)
