OVERVIEW

It's a screamer and a ballad horn all at once.

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.

FEATURES
  • Key: Bb
  • Bore: .445-inch Stepped Bore
  • Leadpipe: One-Piece Drawn
  • Leadpipe Material: Gold Brass
  • Bell: 5-inch One-Piece Hammered
  • Bell Material: Yellow Brass
  • Valves: Monel Piston
  • 1st Valve Slide Adjustment: Thumb Saddle
  • 3rd Valve Slide Adjustment: Fixed Ring
  • Features: One-Piece Drawn Gold Brass Leadpipe; Stepped Bore with Large Bore Tuning Slide; One-Piece Hammered Bell with Large Bell Flair; Lightweight Body Design
  • Case: Deluxe Wood Case
  • Mouthpiece: Yamaha Bobby Shew Signature

Unbelievable sound and versatility for the price

Comments about Yamaha YTR-8310Z Bobby Shew Custom Series Bb Trumpet:

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.

Comments about Yamaha YTR-8310Z Bobby Shew Custom Series Bb Trumpet:

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.

Comments about Yamaha YTR-8310Z Bobby Shew Custom Series Bb Trumpet:

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.

Comments about Yamaha YTR-8310Z Bobby Shew Custom Series Bb Trumpet:

I will keep this short and sweet. I lead a big band and specialize in dance music and the music of Maynard Ferguson. Originally, I played a Holton MF Horn, but wanted a smaller, lighter horn to make my work easier. I purchased the Yamaha 6310Z and never looked back! I was able to blend with the ensemble without killing the poor saxophones, AND step up front for a Maynard chart without a microphone. Since many of our venues are smaller, this was important. When I tried the 8310Z, I was stunned. It had somehow surpassed its predecessor! It's by far the most versitile horn on the market. How often can you use the same horn for Chet Baker AND Maynard Ferguson? However, I did not purchase the 8310Z because it once again allowed me to easily overpower the big band. I love my 6310Z and play it religiously. But I think the 8310Z is more dynamic and responsive.

Comments about Yamaha YTR-8310Z Bobby Shew Custom Series Bb Trumpet:

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.
