Comments about Yamaha YFH-8310Z Custom Z Series Bb Flugelhorn:
Like many professional musicians, I've attended NAMM shows over the years and attempt to play everything out there. For many years, I've owned a beautiful Bach Stradivarius flugel and have been very happy with this fine horn... until I played this small-bore Yamaha Bobby Shew flugelhorn. Wow, the Z-horn has an amazingly rich sound with dead-on intonation and it is exceptionally comfortable to play.
For weeks, I played this horn side-by-side with my Bach. As a straight-ahead jazz musician, I definitely prefer the Yamaha's sonic accuracy and versatility, as well as the superior mechanical precision of the Shew horn. Making music on this superb instrument is next to effortless. I'm so impressed with the Yamaha product that I recently sold both my Bach horns and then purchased a Yamaha YTR-8310Z trumpet as well.
The remarkable ease of playing these Yamaha brass instruments allows me to focus on the music rather than on the effort of playing the notes. These are elegant horns that are truly a joy to play.
