The Yamaha Z combines the tonal richness and depth of character of the older traditional flugels with the easy playability and superb intonation made possible by high-tech engineering. Inspired by legendary artist Bobby Shew, the Z features the perfect amount of air resistance to let you color the sound-your sound-exactly the way you want to. And it slots so nicely in the upper register you'll forget you're playing a flugel! A special 'Bobby Shew' signature mouthpiece is included which perfectly balances and complements the Z.
Brand new design
A brand new design based off of the original YFH-6310Z Bobby Shew Professional Bb flugelhorn.
New trigger system
The newly designed third valve slide trigger is more ergonomic and will accommodate a wider range of hand sizes.
New leadpipe design
The YFH-8310Z features a newly designed leadpipe, outer leadpipe area and a new connection brace between the leadpipe and the valve casing.
New top and bottom valve caps
The new top and bottom valve caps match the YTR-8310Z Bobby Shew Custom Bb trumpet.
Vertical valve tubing
Traditionally, flugelhorns are made with vertical valve tubing.
Monel pistons are resistant to corrosion and are an ideal choice for professional flugelhorn pistons which must retain precise fit and smooth action over many years.
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 improve the response and intonation of the instrument.
The YFH-8310Z flugelhorn is available in a silver-plated finish (YFH-8310ZS).
