The Yamaha YCL650 Bb clarinet is an excellent option for those who are serious about their clarinet performance but are mindful of their budget. The YCL650 is a semi-professional model that uses solid wood with silver plated key work to produce a warm and deeply resonant sound.
The clarinets body is crafted from treated Grenadilla wood, which is an African hard wood often used in instrument manufacture due to its tonal and durable qualities. The wood of each professional-level Yamaha clarinet is carefully selected to obtain the best natural sound, which allows for a remarkable performance with every play.
The YCL650 has a very quick and responsive action, primarily due to the blue steeled needle springs. The undercut tapered tone holes have been delicately hand-shaped, which enhances the accuracy of intonation. This model has a special 65mm barrel design which produces a more focused tone. The flared bell has a specially designed resonance chamber which aids in overall projection and helps the tuning in the lower registers. This model also has an adjustable thumb rest so finding a comfortable playing position is very straight forward and enables the player to make the most of the quick and efficient action.
The instrument is supplied with a robust hard case with soft cover and a shoulder strap. It also comes with cleaning materials, a Yamaha 4C mouthpiece, and cork-grease. Like all our woodwind and brass instruments, this clarinet is set up by our on-site technician prior to dispatch.
