Brighter Jazz Bari Mouthpiece Setup?

So my current setup is a size 7* Metal Otto Link, Francois Louis brass Ultimate Ligature, and size 4 Rico Reserves. This setup is pretty dark, and I want to experiment with a brighter tone. The problem is, I can't really just get a new mouthpiece and/or ligature due to cost, so changes in my tone are dictated entirely by reeds. Would sizing down help with a brighter sound? If not, are there any other kinds of reeds that tend to produce brighter tones? Is it possible that a bright sound can't really be achieved due to how open the chamber of the Otto Link is? Any advice helps, thanks.
