Inspired by Yamaha's long-term collaboration with the world-renowned and highly popular jazz trumpeter Bobby Shew, the Custom Z has it all. It has been designed for versatile professionals and those serious about their music. With a superb range, tone and dynamic compass, this trumpet will feel equally at home playing a soulful ballad, as part of a screaming big band or as a punchy pop solo line. Bobby's unique input was combined with Yamaha's superior product knowledge gained from the original Z to create a stunning sequel to this industry standard.
Every stage of this trumpet's manufacturing process has been optimised to maintain Yamaha's uncompromisingly high standards. The valves and slides have had attention from a specialist Yamaha technician to make sure they are even and maintain an even air seal. The bell has been laser-welded to make it virtually seamless, allowing continuous even vibrations and a smooth, reliable sound that you can confidently adapt and make your own.
Yamaha orchestral instruments represent quality and durability to musicians around the world, building on a reputation reaching back to the 19th Century. Their beginner instruments are respected as superb introductions to an instrument for those serious about making music, while their professional models have all the custom features and design tweaks necessary for musicians at the top of their game.
