Have you tried a different mouthpiece to darken up the sound? I got a pretty nice rich sound to come out of a Yamaha F (the 622) It was nearly as dark as that of the miraphone BBb I played in Symphonic Band. ( The miraphone felt a bit too bright for band)
Or you could just use the BBb. The miraphone I played sung all the way to the top F above the staff with little intonation problems and a great sound.
