Balanced playing resistance, brilliant tone and a solid tonal core for all types of Jazz; the revised Yamaha Custom Z model introduces our latest structural technology and other features refined through countless evaluations by Bobby Shew and the Yamaha R&D team.
While the weight of the valve casing has been increased, the new Custom Z YTR-8310Z has been designed to achieve brilliant tone and ideally-balanced playing resistance.
A redesigned leadpipe and new piston pads result in better response that provides smooth playability on detailed passages.
The new stopper screw also helps to improve tonal solidity while enhancing high-register playability.

New Valve Casing for Powerful Tone
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 weight to the instrument’s tone while also increasing playing resistance.
One-piece Side-seam Bell
A one-piece, yellow-brass bell plays an important role in achieving bright 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.
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.
Signature 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.
Key Bb Bell Material One piece, Yellow brass Bell Diameter 127mm (5") Bore Size Step bore 11.3mm (0.445") Weight Light Finish Gold lacquer Mouthpiece SHEW-JAZZ Case Included
