Yamaha YCL-450 Bb Clarinet
- Available to order
The YCL450 is the first wooden and the first intermediate clarinet in the YCL range. Very robust and responsive, this instrument produces a surprisingly professional sound, while being very reasonably priced. Perfect for the intermediate student who has outgrown their beginners’ clarinet and wish to move on to something more serious.
With a barrel design and bell shape very similar to that of Yamaha’s professional Custom V Series, the YCL450 Clarinet offers a very pure, focused and responsive sound through all registers. The body is made solely of Grenadilla wood, and features 17 silver-plated, hard-wearing keys that are supported by blue steel springs for added ergonomics. Yamaha YCL450 Clarinet has been extremely popular with intermediate/advanced students and keen beginners and deservedly so – Yamaha instruments are known for their excellent quality and durability that will go the distance.
