Yamaha YTR8310Z Trumpet

The Z was born of Yamaha's long and close partnership with the legendary trumpeter Bobby Shew. Bobby is an incredibly versatile player, and to meet all his playing requirements he wanted to create one super-efficient instrument which could scream out a powerful lead, or play soft, mellow ballades. When Yamaha decided to try to improve the Z, R&D specialist Bob Malone worked together with Bobby to create the ultimate horn for the legendary jazz player!

New Valve Casing for Powerful Tone

In order to produce the powerful, well-defined tone that today’s jazz players demand, the conventional one-piece valve casing has been replaced with a two-piece design.

This refinement adds weight to the instrument’s tone while also increasing playing resistance.

One-piece Side-seam Bell

A one-piece yellow-brass bell plays an important role in achieving bright tone and outstanding projection. The bell also features a side seam that passes through the points where tubing braces dampen vibration, for more open resonance.

French Bead Bell Rim

Unlike traditional methods that produce a round bell rim, the more advanced French bead technique results in a flat-dome rim shape that enhances feedback to the performer.
