Need help and opinions!!

As of right now, I have two tenor saxophones, and I've just been recruited to play in a Reggae/old school Ska band. I'm trying to decide which horn of mine is a better fit. I have a Kielwerth SX90R and a Buescher 31A. These are completely different horns, and each add a different color to my playing, which makes the decision much harder. I also don't play a lot of tenor, so I don't really know what to look for. I do know that like the low end of the Buescher, and the high end of the Kielwerth. Looking for opinions from tenor-men. Which would you prefer and why? Which would sound better in relation to the style. Any tips to get the best of the both worlds?

    If you are playing "old school" music. I'd go for an "old school" horn.
