The Yamaha 37 color seems more middle of the road, and therefore might blend in more situations. I do find that the Suzukis get water in the reed gap a lot more often than the Yamaha’s after I have been playing for a while. so in that way I find the Yamaha to be safer in performance. And sometimes I wonder if it’s maybe easier to blow out a reed on a Suzuki. But I would usually rather play the Suzukis, so I just make sure I have two of them with me.
