The Yamaha YCL450 clarinet has to be the perfect instrument to choose for not only starting your musical journey, but also being able to continue playing well into the future. With Yamaha’s experience of crafting professional level instruments, and using Grenadilla wood for the body, it is not only a great sounding instrument but is also extremely reliable and easier to play than some other models.
The Ycl450 Features a bell shape and barrel design similar to that of the acclaimed Yamaha V Series. This result offers a surprisingly professional sound with an effortless response. The new bell design gives improved intonation and projection (especially in the all-important lower register) whilst the new barrel enhances the YCL-450’s response, flexibility and tonal focus.
Silver-plated nickel silver keys give a softer, warmer sound.
New adjustable thumb-rest and strap ring
A new adjustable thumb-rest accommodates different sized hands helping the player develop proper playing technique. In addition, a strap ring allows for the instrument to be held without extra effort. Firmer screws and silver soldered ring gives this new feature excellent durability.
