Yamaha YFH-8310ZS Custom Flugelhorn; Silver-Plated

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.

 

Features

  • 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

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.
