I'm surprised that anyone would describe the CX-12 as "shrill." I find the CX-12 to sound more like a diatonic than any other chromatic I own. Loud, yes. Shrill, no. But if you don't like the sound of the instrument, no more need be said about it. Players should play the instruments they like.
I suppose you've already considered trying a chromatic in a different key than C? Most makes and models are available in a range of keys. Perhaps an E, Bb, or G chromatic will give you the sound you're looking for.
