Sound effects of different metals

I thought a thread devoted to the tonal effects from different metals might be of general interest.
Here is a short vid for 2 Stomvi trumpets I find very interesting. One has a silver plated brass bell, the other a silver plated copper bell. [disclaimer: I am not affiliated with Stomvi in any way, and I am not promoting the brand.]. I am very intrigued by the tonal effects of the silver on copper.

I do believe the types of metals has some real contribution to the perceived quality of sound. An example is the general impression that the sound quality of the Martin Committee began to falter during the mid-1950's. The US Government in 1952 put restrictions on the lead content of metal alloys. Prior to this, the Committee did have a lead alloy component to there earlier model horns.
Sorry I have a lot of trouble listening to this. Please respect Mr Beethoven and play the excerpt correctly.
please see correction below
@Trumpetsplus Not being an opera trumpeter, I'm curious: what is he doing wrong? Reading the excerpt at https://www.trumpetexcerpts.org/leonore-overture-no-3.html I can only guess that you have objections to his flexible tempo?
Edit: vvv Ah, that explains it. I was afraid it would be some convention that is never written down but passed from generation to generation... Thanks!
@Jolter When I first heard it I heard extra C G C G. Turns out it was an oops in my playback! So sorry for this.
