Description
The most popular bass clarinet for schools.

Yamaha YCL-221 Student Bass Clarinet with Low Eb
The Yamaha YCL-221 Low Eb Bass Clarinet has many of the same features as professional models, but the ABS brushed resin body keeps this horn very affordable. Proven quality and durability keeps Yamaha bass clarinets a top choice among band directors.

The matte finish gives the clarinet a handsome appearance, while the ABS resin body makes the clarinet lightweight and durable. At the same time, it resonates nicely and gives it a rich, warm sound and an excellent response. Its neck angle is now the same as the professional models, resulting in a much more comfortable and natural playing position.

The leather pads (also used on its saxophones) are long lasting and provide a better feel than standard clarinet pads. The YCL-221's tone holes were scientifically designed and placed for extremely accurate intonation. The rounded key prevents key damage and eliminates the need to hold the keys when putting the instrument together. Finally, a new joint system features rubber rings surrounding the cork that help prevent air leaks, ease assembly and prevent keys from binding.

Order today with the no-risk assurance of our Total Satisfaction and Low Price Guarantees!

"Great Bass Clarinet"

I use this model of bass clarinet in my advanced band at my middle school. I don't actually own this instrument, but I use the schools. It gets and excellent sound in the lower octaves. The rubber rings are great for assembly. The way that the bass clarinet (at least mine does, it might be a different model) splits in half, reducing the size of the case by almost half. The lower notes really vibrate! Nice sound in the altissimo register. Overall, great horn.

"Great school band instrument, best posssible bass for the price."

This instrument truly is the best bass clarinet model one can buy at this price. Unlike many other student models (all of the ones I've played), this one does not need to have the neck pushed down all the way in order to be in tune, allowing musicians who use any kind of embouchure to still play in tune by adjusting the neck either way. The full range of the instrument is great, with the low end resonating beautifully and the high end playing consistently with a full tone, with good intonation ranging over three octaves. The instrument I have used had some issues with a faulty register system, as well as a somewhat sharp low Eb. Both of those issues are likely to not represent the model as a whole, however. Overall, I consider it a great choice for anyone not willing to buy a professional grade instrument, and especially for school use.

This bass clarinet has a great sound! I was used to playing a wood Selmer and expected a poorer quality sound with a plastic and a (way under) $10,000 bass clarinet. But, this one sounds great and will give the more expensive one a run for their money!

This bass clarinet is well-made. I was able to play it right out of the box with no key fiddling or bending. It has a very nice warm sound. The professional features of this instrument with its low price make it a great buy for any enthusiast. I was impressed with the look and feel of the instrument as well. It fits together very tightly (requiring liberal use of cork grease!) and its multi-joint system makes it more portable. The only thing it lacks is a low-C range.

"Great beginner instrument but plays out of tune"


by saxman - 7/21/2011 4:47:26 PM  Share
Musical Experience: Style of Music: Hometown:
40 years of playing woodwinds classical / Jazz Philadelphia, PA

The instrument is well made and, for the most part, plays in tune with itself. However, after about 10 minutes of playing the instrument plays much too sharp and is difficult to play with an orchestra. The 2nd chair bass clarinetist that I play with also has the YCL 221 and she has the same problem.
