A brand new design based on the traditional smaller bore size preferred by players around the world.

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.

The Shew model is one of the few that is keeping pace with the B&S Challenger II. This instrument slots great in all ranges, has gorgeous tone, and the fit/finish and manufacturing quality are all spectacular in typical Yamaha fashion. This instrument needs to run a little "Wet" on the lubricant as do all Yamaha flugels, and the threading of the valve caps is quite small so this can be a bit of a pain. All in all this instrument is a great investment, and one of our top two favorites in the Band and Orchestra Department!
