Key of Bb. Each instrument has a select handcrafted grenadilla wood body and sculptured silver-plated nickel silver keys. The SEV bore design gives this clarinet a muted chamber sound with instant pop. Toneholes are individually hand-tapered and undercut for optimum tone quality, intonation, and uniform response throughout the instrument's range.

The Yamaha V-Series clarinets represent the very pinnacle of the clarinet making art. They are handcrafted from a select grade of grenadilla wood with uniquely contoured inner bore configurations. Hand-tapered undercut toneholes provide outstanding intonation and response. V-Series clarinets incorporate a unique silver-plated nickel silver alloy for key construction which adds to the resonance of these fine instruments. V-Series clarinets are instantly recognizable by the "V" emblem on the upper joint.

All Yamaha wind instruments come with a limited 5-year warranty.

Comments about Yamaha YCL-SEV Custom Bb Clarinet:

By the highest standards my new Yamaha YCL-SEV clarinet demonstrates superb craftsmanship and quality that exceeds those of higher-priced instruments. No adjustments were necessary after delivery, and the RH and LH lever key functions are light and smooth, having been perfectly adjusted at the factory. Intonation across all registers is true and precise. Tonal quality in the chalumeau register is warm and resonant, and the clarion and altissimo registers are rich, well-centered and not too bright. The advanced player may wish to consider a 66mm or 67mm barrel rather than the standard 65mm, as this is an A-442 clarinet. Also, I chose to replace the fixed thumb rest with an adjustable one to accommodate an arthritic condition. My YCL-SEV has maximized my playing level and blends well with large and small orchestras. The Yamaha YCL-SEV is an outstanding clarinet at an excellent price. From its silver keys to the high-quality case and outer cover, this clarinet exhibits superb refinement, quality and value.

Comments about Yamaha YCL-SEV Custom Bb Clarinet:

This clarinet sounds as good as it looks. The clarinet has a sound that is very round and warm but very dark at the same time. The sound carries to the back of concert halls and still sounds as rich and glorious. The keywork on this clarinet is one of the most astonishing things about this clarinet. The springs are blue steel and all of the keys move with a smooth and even motion. For the price that is listed this clarinet is a true steal. Before I bought this clarinet I tried many other models of clarinets from many different brands. The Yamaha SEV had all of the qualities of the pricer clarinets but was at a fraction of the cost. I love this clarinet for the reason that it performs. What ever I want or need to do this clarinet will let me do it. My Yamaha has not let me down on any occasion and will never let you down either.
