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.

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.
Laser-fused pluzuma welded bell
A high-energy laser fuses the brass together for a virtually seamless bell which allows continuous even vibrations.
Movable mouthpiece receiver
Tuning is made easier with the movable mouthpiece receiver.
Pressure formed tubing
Perfectly rounded tubing results in less turbulence and a smoother air flow, thus allowing for an excellent scale and reduced resistance.
Available features
The YFH-6310Z flugelhorn is available in a silver-plated finish (YFH-6310ZS). It is available without a case or with a deluxe combo case (YAC 1366).

Pros: intonation, warm sound
Cons: none

I think the silver version of Bobby Shew's flugelhorn sound a little bit brighter as the lacquered version. For me it's one of the best flugels of the world!
