Yamaha YTR-8310Z Bobby Shew Custom Series Bb TrumpetThe Yamaha YTR-8310Z Bobby Shew Custom is a result of Yamaha' s partnership with the great trumpeter Bobby Shew. Bobby is a versatile player, equally at home in a lead role in a big band or in a largely soloing context in a quintet setting. Shew had a vision of creating one single efficient instrument that could screech a lead line, or blow sweet, mellow ballades. He finally found that instrument in the Z.When Yamaha decided to try to improve the Z, trumpet designer Shunichi Niwata and R&D specialist Bob Malone worked together with Bobby, making sure it had what Bobby needed in order to handle all of these various applications.The result was the Z as it is today. Key of Bb. Lightweight; .445" bore; one-piece, 5", yellow brass bell; one piece, drawn, gold brass mouthpipe; Monel pistons; hand-lapped pistons and slides; laser-fused pluzuma welded bell; unbraced inner outer tuning slide; large bell flare; large bore tuning slide; and special bead and bell taper.

I'm a highschool student and I figured it was time to up grade to a pro trumpet. After trying out lots of trumpets this one stood out. It has a great tone, it extended my range, and it's note slotting is right on. The only trumpet to compare this one to is the Yamaha New York Artist trumpet, but for the price this one is a much better deal. Also, the Bobby Shew mouthpiece it comes with is a great all-around mouthpiece.
I'm a sophomore in my high school band. We are playing a song for our marching band with several high G's above high C. I was able to hit them before I bought this trumpet, but on very rare occasion, now I can nail a G and do it consecutive times throughout the song. I've also been able to pull out an A. This trumpet projects its sound far better than other trumpets, yet it can play mellow and soft when needed. This trumpet has the quality of a Schilke but costs several hundred less.
I used to play on Bach strad light-weight with a 72 bell for a bigger sound. It was great. But found myself working harder than I needed at the end of a long night. With the 8310Z. Since day one. I noticed didn't have to use a large airstream. With less effort achieved same results. I have an increased response throughout the entire range on the horn. From my lowest note. To my highest. Makes a GREAT, AWESOME, LEAD trumpet. Everyone who's tried my horn notices it to. Guess they know my secret now. :-) Special Thanx to WW&BW for the great deal on a beautiful gem like this.
I have a '47 Chicago Benge and a '47 Martin Committee and the new ShewHorn has the smoothest jazz tone that is contemporary and drips with warm overtones. The slotting on this horn is dead on..I don't even need to correct the D and F drastically to stay in tune. This horn is one flexible bugle.You can go from low F# to G above the staff like the notes were next to one another. It only took 2 hours to completely feel at home on the Shew. The valves are very fast without feeling like your fighting the mechanism. The looks are killer. What's not to like with this baby. I went from a large bore Martin to this horn and I can last way longer on this horn. Still hitting the strato notes late in the night. Great tone really smooth..no harsh or brash tone at all. and if you have the lungs it will scream without breaking up....
I PLAY CONN AND OLDS CORNETS, HOLTON AND BACH TRUMPETS. MY STRAD WAS A REAL BEAUTY, A 43 WITH GOLD ACCENTS AND 1ST. TRIGGER, REEVES VALVE JOB ETC. THE 8310 BLEW IT AWAY. I TRADED THE STRAD AND BOUGHT THE YAHAMA. WOW, THE EASE OF PLAYING IS INCREDIBLE. I IMMEDIATELY ADDED 2 NOTES TO MY UPPER REGISTER. THE COLOR IS FABULOUS, LIKE GOLD PLATE, THE 5" BELL IS A PERFECT MATCH, TUNING SLIDES ARE LIKE BUTTER. I ALREADY ORDERED THE SHEW LEAD MOUYHPIECE TO GO ALONG WITH THE JAZZ MODEL THAT COMES WITH THE HORN. THIS HORN IS BY FAR THE BEST HORN I'VE SEEN IN TERMS OF PRICE, QUALITY, AND CRAFTSMANSHIP. TRY 10 STRADS AND YOU TRY 10 DIFFERENT SOUNDS. TRY 1 YAMAHA CUSTOM AND YOU'LL STOP LOOKING, IT'S THAT GOOD!
Absolutely love it! I was at grade 7 and really needed something better than the nice but limited flugel and very basic cornet I already had, tried loads of pro standard horns and this was by far the best. Hugely volatile and responsive, you can really get feeling into the music, without busting a gut. Brilliant tone throughout the register, a great buy. I managed to get it a very good condition second hand.
I purchased this horn after playing on another lightweight horn, a Strad Model 43, for many years, and I could immediately tell that I was going to buy it. It is extremely easy to play, even from the start,and it slots perfectly, though you can still throw it around when you want to. The sound, depending on the way you use your air, is very full, with a great even quality to it. The c-trumpet derived 5" bell offers great projection, and creates a big sound, which sounds excellent in classical and jazz. For lead work, this is your home. First of all the sound is big, so you can fill any room regardless of size, and the upper register is very clean (oh, and by the way, this trumpet can scream). So feel free to wale and leave smoke. It is also quite easy to play up there, but in some instances (it may be a mouthpiece issue), the horn is limited to a high F/G, but that is what Yamahas' are great for: Also, the horn is said to have a medium/large bore, but be prepared for something closer to a large bore, because it is very free-blowing.
Although, with this horn, it is very possible that you will find you like the free-blowiness!
Overall, great for classical, great for jazz (bigband, small group, and Maynard kind of stuff), and I am sure it would be great for lower orchestral parts as well. This is a great main horn!!!!
I have played many trumpets, including my LT180S37 Bach Stradivarius, and this is by far one of the best trumpets I have ever played. I perform in two local big bands (in one I play lead trumpet), in our local park band, and a few other various groups. Let me start by saying this trumpet screams in the high range. It opens up very easily and the intonation is great above the C above the staff. It also has wonderful projection. The director of our big band joked to the audience recently that our trumpet section is now accepting work peeling paint off the sides of buildings (Two of us use the 8310Z). I have also found that this trumpet is great for outdoors work. When playing with the local park band I don't get overly tired and it projects very well. This is important when playing in the summer heat.
One of my primary concerns about the 8310Z was if it had the ability to sound great at low volumes. I was happy to find that the trumpet plays just as wonderfully when playing softly and sweetly as it does when playing high energy, loud music. I couldn't be happier with the results I am getting from the 8310Z.
All in all I have found that this trumpet is great for any kind of performance I throw at it. I would not have expected so much out of such a reasonably priced trumpet.
Just as a side note the case it comes with is fantastic. It fits my 8310Z, my Bach, and my two Warburton mouthpieces perfectly. I also enjoy that I am able to lock them up in the case when I am not using them.
Yes, this horn "peels paint"... I have used several horns over the last few decades, Bach, Callichio, Kanstul, Besson, older Yamaha, Wild Thing, and Benge. This new Shew model is the cat's meow. I had tried out the older 6310 several years ago and it was too tight for me. They really opened up this horn to new heights. I tried it out of the box on a friend's new horn. Without much effort, I nailed a double high A. Having had this for a few days, it's now an easy double high C on the fly. Even better is that I can come down and play a soft, dark ballad immediately after soaring in the upper register. This is the first horn that actually hurt my ears when playing in Ferguson-Land. It will cut like no other horn out there... Don't spend a large amount of $$$ on specialty horns. This will be the only lead horn you'll ever need. FYI - I did stick a C Cap on the third valve to help slot a little more accurately.
I think this is a great trumpet. It is supposed to be a jazz trumpet but it seems to work well for band literature as well. If you are going to do this, I would strongly suggust not playing on the lead mouthpiece that comes with it. I read somewhere that you can do this and it will sound fine but this is definately not the case. Play this trumpet with the correct mouthpiece and it will sound awesome
