Yamaha YTR-8310Z Bobby Shew Custom Series Bb Trumpet
The 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.

"Never looked back (<_<) "

Professional performer Jazz,Latin,BIG band. Chicago, Illinois

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.

Playing lead trumpet for the 'Greatest show on Earth' is a VERY demanding job. I was perfectly content with my 6310Z and, much like Bobby Shew himself, was alittle skeptical when the word was out about Yamaha improving upon that popular lightweight horn. Well, they did it, and it's called the 8310Z!!!! It has made my job noticeably easier....and here's why: 1) The bigger bead on the bell, as well as moving the seam of the bell to the side, has made the sound BIGGER! You get nothing but pure sound at ALL dynamics and in ALL registers. 2)It's actually BRIGHTER,when you want it to be, than the 6310Z! Which is what I need to sit on top of the horn section! 3) It responds even QUICKER than the 6310Z! This is really nice 'cause you don't have to step on the gas at all for it to take just goes like a fine-tuned sports car!!!! INSTANT SOUND! 4) The upper register 'holds together better' and won't break-up on you. I guess you could say that it's a more focused feel up top--you feel more 'secure.' There may be a slight adjustment period if your coming off the 6310Z, but not much. And for those of you coming off a larger horn, just lay-back on it and let the horn do the work. As we all know, it's about making trumpet playing easier, and once you play the new 8310Z, you too will believe!

"Great Horn!!!"

I have owned many horns, a Schilke X-3 which I loved, a Calicchio, a Monette, a couple of Bach?s, other Yamahas. This horn beats them all. This horn has an even response top to bottom. It not only sounds great playing ear-ripping lead, it has a great "bounce" to it as a jazz horn. It also blends well in concert band and brass quintet. It slots well to a double c and above, including the notorious high a. I recently had the opportunity to play a Broadway type of revue show that I had played two years earlier on another horn, the above mentioned Calicchio, which is a really good horn. There was a nasty line that was in unison with a singer that needed restraint and control that went up to an e above high c and back down into the middle register. This line gave me problems on some of the performances two years ago. This time around I nailed it every time, in tune, without a scratch for all 12 performances on the 8310z. This is a horn I ordered without play testing. I have never looked back.

I couldn't have asked for a better lead horn! I use the 8310Z as my primary lead horn in a Big Band, with my churches Praise Band and as a soloist. This is one of the easiest horns i've ever played. Three and four octaves come with ease as does perfect intonation throughout. I recommend this horn to anyone. Be careful though, if you over play it, she'll bite back!

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 harsh or brash tone at all. and if you have the lungs it will scream without breaking up....

"One of the best Trumpets made Today!!!"

The Bobby Shew trumpet is by far the most versatile trumpet made today. For many years I have been playing many styles of music on it and I have never found a situation where the Shew horn has not fit. It is true, if you are playing professionally in an orchestra, the Shew horn might not be the most ideal, but if you are just starting out and you need a Trumpet that can cover all the bases and produce a good sound this one is for you.

If you are looking for a trumpet that can give you a heavenly sound with minimal effort look no more...this is the trumpet for you. Quality and responsiveness of the valves are flawless as well as the finish and feel. It comes with a great looking case and the Bobby Shew Jazz Mouthpiece. One word of caution "DO NOT OVERLOOK THE MOUTHPIECE THAT THIS TRUMPET COMES WITH" It was custom made for the instrument... the fit and sound for me were perfect. I take this opportunity to thank Dan Seda of WWBW for his professionalism in helping me choose an instrument that fit me perfect. Mil Gracias Hermano.

"Unbelievable sound and versatility for the price"

by John - 2/2/2014 7:15:12 PM  Share
Musical Experience: Style of Music: Hometown:
active,hobbyist classical,jazz,blues Satellite Beach, FL

Wanted a horn that could handle the high register interval slotting needed for classical arpeggios etc. but still had a nice full sound in the mid range. This horn did it all. I found the Bachs (180s37 and 43) were great for the high register accuracy but were lacking in projection and fullness in the mid range. If I played orchestra or wind ensemble only, I think I would probably go Bach but I was sold on the versatility of this horn. Not to mention the price. BTW the mouthpiece that comes with this horn should not be overlooked. If you're out trying horns, do not make a decision without trying 8310Z.

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!!!!

"Boy, am I happy!"

Musical Experience: Style of Music: Hometown:
Playing since grade school, 51 years old Jazz and concert South Bend, Indiana

I have played Bach products for 35 years, so I was looking for another horn,finally. I play tested for several hours over 3 sessions at WWBW and narrrowed my choices down to the Shew and the Bergeron yamaha's. Both these horns out performed the Getzen's I tried,which surprised me. The Shew could peel paint, as they say nowadays and the Bergeron could do it also but in a nicer way. In the end, I felt more comfortable with the Shew in my hands and my interval work was more spot on. Both horns slot well with the Bergeron being a little darker in tone. The only con I have with the Shew is the case...very small and really quite worthless. I kept my old refurbished Bach case. No more Bach's, this horn really improves your play and sound. Very good craftsmanship and I can't wait to play it live...
