Roger plays his custom Yamaha F not because they pay him to, but because he feels that it is the best F for what HE does. He used to play a stock YFB-621, which he had modified with the left-hand fifth valve and the 2 step slide. Then Yamaha built him the custom F (a wild variation of the 621) which he still plays. Word is that Yamaha has no plans to build Roger's horn...unfortunate as it has exactly what the current 621 needs in changes.
He does get free work done on his horn, but no "Thanks for playing Yamaha" check in the mail.
Hope this helps....
