Buy Extended Service Plan ( What This? )
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. He finally found that instrument in the Z.
When Yamaha decided to improve the Z, trumpet designer Shunichi Niwata and R&D specialist Bob Malone worked together with Bobby, passing into it all the special techniques they learned since designing the first Z.
Unique Bell Bead Design
This design allows for a more resonant and projecting sound.
Hammered one-piece bell
The newly designed yellow brass bell features a side seam and a variable wall thickness. This new manufacturing process results in a quicker response, a deeper rich sound, a wider spectrum of tone colors and better projection.
Hand lapped pistons and slides
Hand-lapping pistons and slides ensure an absolutely perfect fit and seal between the pistons and casing or slide parts. Such a perfect fit helps to achieve smooth air flow and smooth action and improves the response and intonation of the instrument.
Laser-fused pluzuma welded bell
A high-energy laser fuses the brass together for a virtually seamless bell which allows continuous even vibrations.
Unbraced inner outer tuning slide
As with all Yamaha lightweight trumpets, the YTR-8310Z has an unbraced inner outer tuning slide which makes the trumpet comfortably open with less resistance.
One-piece, drawn, gold brass leadpipe
This type of leadpipe offers excellent intonation, response and proper resistance.
Large bell flare and large bore tuning slide
The large bore tuning slide and large bell flare in combination with the stepped bore design allows this medium bore trumpet to produce a very big sound with very little effort.

Comments about Yamaha YTR8310ZS Bobby Shew Trumpet (Silver Plated):
The Bobby Shew horn is probably one of the most remarkable horns that I have ever played. The horn is extremely open and warm, the perfect pairing for a section leader or screaming lead trumpet player. Intonation and slotting on the horn is superb and never fails to perform at 110%.
