YTR8310Z – Custom Z Series, Light weight Bb Trumpet, Yellow brass Bell 127 mm (5 “), Bore M: 11.3 mm (0445”), Finishing: Gold lacquered, Mouthpiece: SHEW-JAZZ
The Z series was born from the long and close collaboration between Yamaha and Bobby Shew, a legendary trumpeter of the jazz scene. Bobby is a very versatile musician and in order to satisfy all his executive needs, he wanted to find a multi-purpose instrument, which could be used for very demanding solos, accompaniment parts or slow 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.
