Second-gen Bobby Shew Signature Trumpet

The YTR-8310ZIIS Custom Z represents the second generation of Yamaha's acclaimed Bobby Shew signature trumpet. This horn's refined design not only supplies unparalleled richness and depth, but its well-balanced playability will also meet the ever-changing needs of modern players. The YTR-8310ZIIS's corrosion-resistant monel alloy valves are housed in a 2-piece casing for added weight and muscle, while redesigned piston pads ensure ultra-smooth action. This trumpet's .445-inch step bore elicits a focused, brilliant sound; its revamped leadpipe ensures a comfortable, free-blowing feel. You also get a 1-piece side-seam bell with a French bead rim that maximizes this trumpet's resonance and projection. You'll appreciate the superior tone stabilization and heightened upper-register playability supplied by the YTR-8310ZIIS's extra-long third valve slide stopper screw, and how its silver-plated brass body lends a brilliant sheen to every note you play. If you're searching for a lightweight, high-performance horn for jazz and commercial applications, the Yamaha YTR-8310ZIIS Custom Z will make the ideal addition to your arsenal.

Serious jazz or lead trumpet players searching for a lightweight horn with lots of flexibility will find much to appreciate in the YTR-8310ZIIS Custom Z. This trumpet's revamped leadpipe offers a comfortable level of breath resistance along with smooth playability on detailed passages, and its .445-inch step bore permits you to create a vibrant, larger-than-life sound with little effort. The YTR-8310ZIIS's rugged monel alloy valves yield smooth, quick action and excellent resistance to impact damage, moisture, and air leaks, while its 2-piece valve casing adds depth and core to your playing. To top it off, this horn's extra-long third valve slide stopper screw facilitates tone stabilization and upper-register playability that are second to none.

1-piece side-seam bell

Constructed from yellow brass, the Yamaha YTR-8310ZIIS Custom Z's 1-piece, 5-inch bell contributes greatly to its vibrant tone and cannon-like projection, and its side-seam design dampens vibration for an incredibly open, resonant sound. The YTR-8310ZIIS also includes a French bead bell rim — a flat-dome rim shape that further bolsters this horn's resonance and projection. The YTR-8310ZIIS features a silver-plated brass body, which produces an ear-grabbing brilliant quality. At Sweetwater, we've also found that this trumpet's silver-plated finish gives it a gleaming, polished look.
