YTR-8310Z Bb Trumpets
The Legend Continues
The original “Z” was born of Yamaha’s long and close partnership with legendry trumpeter Bobby Shew. Then in 2018 Yamaha and Shew collaborated to create a second-generation YTR-8310Z that further refines the brilliant tone and well-balanced playing resistance that contemporary styles demand. The Shew ideal is one versatile, efficient instrument that can wail out powerful leads and also play soft, mellow ballads. The Z satisfies all of his playing requirements. The tapering thickness of the handmade bell 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.
Balanced playing resistance, brilliant tone and a solid tonal core for all types of jazz.
The revised Yamaha Custom Z model introduces the latest Yamaha structural technology and other features refined through countless evaluations by Bobby Shew and the Yamaha R&D team.
“The new Custom Z speaks easily, fills the room with sound without a lot of effort. Thanks, Yamaha. Another wonderful step forward”
— Bobby Shew, Yamaha Artist
