YTR-8310Z – Yamaha Custom Z Bobby Shew Trumpet
Handmade in Japan
The Custom Z trumpet was born of Yamaha’s long and close partnership with legendary trumpeter Bobby Shew. Even though not officially called a “Bobby Shew” model, the Yamaha Custom Z is most known by players as a result of the unofficial namesake. An incredibly versatile musician, Bobby Shew needed one efficient instrument that could scream out a powerful lead and play soft, mellow ballads. With the 8310Z, he finally found an instrument that met all of his playing requirements.
The expressive tonal capabilities of this instrument will satisfy the needs of jazz artists as well as players in just about any other musical genre.
The handmade bell is one of the biggest Yamaha makes at a 5″ diameter, and its tapering thickness gives players a very open and comfortable response as well as better feedback into their sound. The flat-dome bell rim helps players create their own personal tonal colors. With the newest Custom Z, Yamaha kept the same basic design concepts—the precise lead pipe taper and super-efficient step bore—that made the original Z so popular. But Yamaha has improved on it in many subtle ways, often using techniques learned in developing the heavyweight Xeno Trumpets. As a result, the Custom Z offers an unprecedented amount of tonal richness and depth.
Yamaha Performance Consistency
One of the biggest benefits of the Yamaha Custom Z Bobby Shew trumpet is the performance consistency. Known for their exceptional intonation/slotting as well as their consistency, the Yamaha Bobby Shew trumpet offers players a perfect performance blend regardless of performance skill level.
