Yamaha YTR-8310Z Trumpet
The Yamaha YTR-8310Z Trumpet 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 ballads. He finally found that instrument in the Z. When we decided to try 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 we’d learned since designing the first Z. And the results speak for themselves.
The legend continues, YTR-8310ZII
While maintaining many of the design features that made the original Custom Z trumpet so unique,the new YTR-8310ZII has an updated leadpipe and a precise valve casing design. These modifications combine to offer unprecedented tonal richness and depth, together with maximum efficiency and comfortable resistance for players in any setting and genre—from the jazz club stage to the recording studio.
Notes Shew: “I’ve been playing the original Z for a long time, but after a busy day of playing the new 8310Z, I was amazed. It speaks easily with little effort and fills the room with sound. Thanks,Yamaha—a wonderful step forward!”
“At Yamaha we are in a unique position to have the chance to work with legendary players like Bobby Shew who are helping us to develop and improve our instruments. The Z-Trumpets are an absolute success story starting from YTR-6310Z to our 2nd Generation YTR-8310Z model now. The great versatility and efficiency is absolute impressive and makes it one of the most popular Trumpets worldwide.” Timo Hänf, Product Specialist, Brass, Yamaha Music Europe.
Monel pistons are resistant to corrosion and are an ideal choice for professional trumpet pistons which must retain precise fit and smooth action over many years.
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 colours and better projection.
Hand lapped pistons and slides
Hand-lapping pistons and slides ensures 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 reversed 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.
