Brand new Yamaha YFH-8310ZII Bobby Shew flugelhorn in lacquer. This second-generation Shew flugelhorn plays very easily with a light, fluffy sound that maintains its characteristic flugel sound in all registers and has excellent intonation. Comes with Yamaha hard case and Bobby Shew model flugelhorn mouthpiece.


Created in close cooperation with Bobby Shew, the YFH-8310ZII is a traditional flugelhorn that combines brilliance and lightness in a significantly evolved instrument. A stable high register and rich tonality offer new levels of musical expression. The unique character of this model will stand out in live jazz venues as well as studio applications.

New valve casing

YFH-8310Z New valve casing

The valve casing is the critical heart of any flugelhorn, and in the YFH-8310ZII everything from basic materials to the braces that connect the independent valve casings has been painstakingly analyzed and refined to provide improved breath efficiency and ideal playing resistance.

Brass leadpipe screw

YFH-8310Z Brass leadpipe screw

A new barrel shaped screw design is not only easier to operate when tuning, but also contributes to better tonal definition for improved playability and easier high note production. The use of brass results in a softer tone and freer blowing. The knurled barrel is easy to operate while the hollow shape contributes to a freer playing feel, and the design has been carefully refined to optimize the instrument’s overall balance.


YFH-8310Z Leadpipe

The shorter Malone Pipe™ is a revolutionary new design that features a tapered section between the leadpipe and valve casing for improved high register stability, playability, and pitch accuracy. In addition, it delivers the type of soft, warm, expressive tone expected from the finest traditional flugelhorns.

3rd trigger
