OVERVIEW

Newly redesigned student clarinet.

The Yamaha YCL-255 is a newly redesigned Bb Clarinet with a matte ABS resin body, nickel-plated silver keys, 65mm barrel, and an adjustable thumb-rest with strap ring. It ships with the CL-4C mouthpiece.The YCL-255 combines state-of-the-art production expertise with high-end Yamaha clarinet features. The result is an outstanding entry-level instrument that delivers a warm, resonant tone that is remarkably similar to that of a wood clarinet. It features an ABS resin body with a matte finish that imitates the look of a wood clarinet and an adjustable thumb-rest with a neck strap ring that allows for even those with small hands to easily hold the instrument.

The new adjustable thumb-rest accommodates different sized hands, which helps 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. The YCL-255's new bell made of solid and durable ABS resin results in a lighter instrument with improved response.

A resonance chamber in the bell aids in projection and improves intonation in lower notes. The 65mm barrel is based on high-end Yamaha clarinet designs helps to produces a focused tone.The attractive matte finish simulates the actual grain of wood while providing the added durability of ABS resin. The YCL-255 also features Valentino padsh, which are durable, easy to repair, and less sensitive to temperature changes.

Great Product!

Comments about Yamaha YCL-255 Standard Bb Clarinet:

I bought this for my daughter who is in high school. She hasn't used it yet at school, but has played it at home a few times. She is so excited to have a new clarinet that sounds so good. She had been using a hand me down clarinet that was very old and just didn't have good tones. Matte finish is very pretty. Keys are easier to use and the ligature is better. Allows the reed to vibrate better. She can't wait to play in concert band.

Comments about Yamaha YCL-255 Standard Bb Clarinet:

I recently joined a community band after a 23 year hiatus. Ordered this instrument because it mirrored the one I played in high school. This newer model instrument is extremely easy to play with a sound just as nice as a wood instrument. Highly recommend this instrument to all.
