OVERVIEW

The bridge between an introductory clarinet and a professional instrument.

With its intermediate line, Yamaha seeks to provide the diligent, promising student with an instrument that will likely be the "last stop" before he or she takes a deep breath and purchases an investment-grade instrument. So it is with the Yamaha YCL-450.

The YCL-450 intermediate model clarinet incorporates some of the distinct qualities of Yamaha's professional and custom clarinets. One of these features is a 65mm barrel design that produces a focused tone and quick response. Players looking to "step-up" their performance will do just that with this instrument.

Intermediate instruments need to feel different than student model instruments. Part of making the YCL-450 "feel" better is the upgrade in spring material. Blue steel springs give the keys a lighter touch and feel while producing a smooth, quick action. Additionally, the YCL-450's silver-plated keys provide not only an enhanced appearance, but also a wonderful feel for the players. In order to make the keys to the appropriate strength level, a technique called power forging is used. The result of this hi-tech process is keywork that is exceptionally durable and contoured to the best possible ergonomic shape.

Yamaha intermediate model instruments set themselves apart with their use of professional materials and features. Straight tone holes with tapered undercuts provide outstanding intonation and response making the YCL-450 play like a pro model instrument.

So here it is. You've been practicing. You've been studying. You've been listening to your instructors. You have talent. And here is your reward. The Yamaha YCL-450. You deserve this.
