  • Yamaha YCL-450N Intermediate Bb Clarinet
    Yamaha YCL-450N Intermediate Bb Clarinet

    Featuring a bell shape and barrel design similar to the V series, YCL-450N offers a professional sound with an easy response. Natural oil finish and nickel-plated keys help to provide a clear focused tone. 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.

    New 65mm barrel

    The YCL-450N 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.

    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-450N 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-450N "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, nickel-plated keys

    The nickel-plated keys provide a more clear and focused tone. Also, the nickel-plated keys of the YCL-450N provide a good alternative for people who have an allergic reaction to silver-plating. In order to make the keys to the appropriate strength level, a technique called power forging is used. The results 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-450N play like a pro-model instrument.

  • Yamaha YCL-650U Professional Bb Clarinet
    Yamaha YCL-650U Professional Bb Clarinet

    The 650 is an excellent alternative for those who are serious about their clarinet performance but need to watch their budget. The specifications of its bell, barrel, toneholes and other features are very close to those of the Custom SEV model, so its sound is warm, round, and deeply resonant. Made of carefully select and seasoned Grenadilla wood and boasting an enormous amount of handcrafting and hand finishing, the 650 features tapered toneholes which are undercut by hand for precise intonation and superior tonal balance. It also features beautifully sculpted keys whose touch has been regulated by master artisans for perfect balance.


    New 65mm barrel

    The YCL-650 professional model clarinet features a 65mm barrel design that produces a focused tone and quick response. Players looking for the tools necessary to maximize their performance will do just that with this clarinet.

    New bell design

    A new resonance chamber in the bell of the YCL-650 aids in projection and improves intonation in lower notes, allowing for consistency and confidence.

    Adjustable thumb rest

    Since there are so many different sizes and shapes of hands, it only makes sense that there ought to be some type of adjustment for different hand positions. An adjustable thumb rest is designed for player comfort while needle springs provide faster key action.
