The Z was born of Yamaha’s long and close partnership with legendary trumpeter Bobby Shew. An incredibly versatile musician, Shew needed one efficient instrument that could scream out a powerful lead and play soft, mellow ballads.
This is how the Z model was born. When we decided to perfect it, the designer of Trumpets Shunichi Niwata and the technician Bob Malone collaborated with Bobby to create an instrument exploiting all the constructive skills that they learned from the construction of the very first model Z. The result speaks for itself.
