Discover Unparalleled Versatility With The Yamaha YTR-8310Z Bobby Shew Custom Bb Trumpet Gen II - Silver Plated

Having made its debut in 2001, the original Custom Z was borne out of Yamaha's close partnership with legendary trumpet player Bobby Shew, who has been a Yamaha artist since 1992. An exceptionally versatile player, Shew wanted to create one super-efficient instrument that could alternatively scream out a powerful lead, or play soft, mellow ballads. The result of this collaboration was a hugely popular, world-class instrument - the YTR-8310Z - one that is lightweight, has a brilliant sound, and incorporates a step-bore design to maximize efficiency and comfortable resistance for live music.


  • New Leadpipe: The redesigned leadpipe results in a better response that provides smooth playability on detailed passages
  • French Bead Bell Rim: Unlike traditional methods that produce a round bell rim, the more advanced French bead technique results in a flat-dome rim shape that enhances feedback to the performer.
  • 3rd Valve Slide Stopper Screw: The new longer screw helps with tone stabilization and enhancing upper-register playability
  • TRC-801E Case: The new Z comes with the stylish TRC-810E double case with backpack straps, a shoulder strap and a Custom Z keychain.


New Two-Piece Valve Casing

In order to produce the powerful, well-defined tone that today's jazz players demand, the conventional one-piece valve casing has been replaced with a two-piece design. This refinement adds depth and core to the instrument's tone while also balancing the playing resistance.

One-piece Side-seam Bell

A one-piece yellow-brass bell plays an important role in achieving a brilliant tone and outstanding projection. The bell also features a side seam that passes through the points where tubing braces dampen vibration, for more open resonance.

TR-SHEW-Jazz Mouthpiece

This Jazz mouthpiece has a fairly deep, roomy cup for big, warm sound. The throat and backbore are designed to provide enough "jump and snap" to nimbly maneuver through quick jazz passages with rich, full tone.

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, while maintaining maximum efficiency and comfortable resistance for players in any setting and genre - from the jazz club stage to the recording studio.

The original Custom Z was born of Yamaha's long and close partnership with legendary trumpet player Bobby Shew. In 2018, Yamaha and Bobby collaborated to create a second-generation YTR-8310Z that further refines the brilliant tone and well-balanced playing resistance that contemporary styles demand. Bobby needed one versatile, efficient instrument that can wail out powerful lead lines and also play soft, mellow ballads with the musical nuance that Bobby is known for. Yamaha has developed the new Custom Z to satisfy all of Bobby's playing requirements while retaining the highest level of precision and consistency.
