YCL-221II Yamaha Standard Bass Clarinet

A two-piece body and compact case design make this student bass clarinet the "school-bus-friendly" choice!


Matte finished ABS resin body
The matte finish gives the clarinet a much better appearance, while the ABS resin body makes the clarinet more lightweight and very durable while giving it a warmer sound and an excellent response.

Redesigned neck angle
The neck angle is now the same as that of the professional models, resulting in a much more comfortable and natural playing position.

Leather pads with plastic resonators
These pads (also used on our saxophones) are longer lasting and provide a better feel with increased projection than standard clarinet pads.

Redesigned register tone hole
This tone hole was scientifically designed and placed for extremely accurate intonation.

Rounded bridge key connector
The rounded key prevents key damage and eliminates the need to hold the keys when putting the instrument together.

New joint system
The rubber rings surrounding the cork help to prevent air leaks, ease assembly and prevent keys from binding.

Compact ABS case
This durable lightweight case is smaller and easier for children to carry, making it much more bus-friendly. This case is also stackable and will take up much less space in the band room.

YCL-450N Yamaha Intermediate Clarinet

Featuring a bell shape and barrel design similar to that of the V Series, the YCL-450 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.


Features

New 65mm barrel
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"...

New bell design
Nothing can be more frustrating than a soft sounding, out of tune instrument. A new resonance chamber in the bell of the YCL-450 aids in projection and improves intonation in lower notes, allowing for consistency and confidence.

"Blue" steel spring material
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.

Sculptured, silver-plated keys
The 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 are keys that are exceptionally durable and contoured to the best possible ergonomic shape.

Straight tone holes with tapered undercut
Yamaha intermediate model instruments set themselves aside 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.
