Precisely balanced and light to touch, Yamaha Bb Clarinets permit you to effortlessly create the tonal colours you desire - to forget about the technical aspects of your performance and concentrate on pure musicality. Yamaha Clarinets Always Evolving - Yamaha has unique resources which just aren’t available to any other instrument makers. One of these is an R&D network with full-time staff stationed around the world. These designers are in constant contact with many of the world’s greatest musicians, who share their talent, experience and dreams with us. It is those artists who inspire Yamaha designers and craftspeople to keep reaching higher and higher. Together they have formed a team which continually challenges the traditional limits in clarinet design. Working together they have succeeded in creating a completely new standard of clarinet excellence. When designing the YCL450 Series, we conceived it as an instrument that a player just starting out, would want to continue playing well into the future. These are all Grenadilla instruments designed with the know-how gained through years of experience crafting professional level instruments.
Featuring a bell shape and barrel design similar to that of the V Series, the YCL450N offers a surprisingly 'professional' sound with an easy response. The new bell design gives improved intonation and projection, especially in the all-important lower register, while the new barrel enhances the 450's response, flexibility and tonal focus.
