Yamaha YTR 8310Z Bobby Shew

Yamaha YTR 8310Z Bobby Shew

The Z was born of Yamaha' s long and close partnership with the legendary trumpeter Bobby Shew. Bobby is an incredibly versatile player, and to meet all his playing requirements he wanted to create one super efficient instrument which could scream out a powerful lead, or play soft, mellow ballades. He finally found that instrument in the Z. When Yamaha decided to try to improve the Z, trumpet designer Shunichi Niwata and R&D specialist Bob Malone worked together with Bobby, passing into it all the special techniques they'd learned since designing the first Z. And the results speak for themselves.

Windblowers - Best Independent Music Retailer 2019

Windblowers are delighted to announce that they have been awarded the SME Midlands Enterprise award for Best Independent Music Retailer 2019!

"The prestigious award marks the hard work and stellar efforts helping to shape this dynamic and innovative region."

The Midlands Enterprise Awards returns once more, allowing SME News to reward the hardworking individuals and firms hailing from the Midlands region for their innovation and excellence in their business practice as well as their outstanding overall performance.

The Midlands, home to over ten million people and hosts eight hundred thousand businesses, both large and small, is the heart of England. Many of these smaller, yet influential businesses to the region, often go overlooked, despite their achievements, missing out on the recognition they so richly deserve.

Natalie Farrell, Award Coordinator discusses the success of this year’s programme: “In a region which has become the most popular location, outside of London, for the emergence of new businesses to start-ups in recent years and attracting regional high record levels of foreign direct investment over the last decade, there is truly much to celebrate across the various trades and industries operating across the East and West Midlands. I am immeasurably proud of my winners and wish them the best of luck for the future.”

SME News prides itself on the validity of its awards and winners. The awards are given solely on merit and are awarded to commend those most deserving for their ingenuity and hard work, distinguishing them from their competitors and proving them worthy of recognition.

The scheme allows individuals between the ages of 18 and 25 to apply for a loan of up to £2,000 for the purchase of any kind of musical instrument, and pay it back in nine monthly installments, completely interest free.

The scheme has been extended to allow anyone to purchase an instrument for someone aged under 18. Please enquire for more details.
