Yamaha YCL450M Bb Clarinet

The YCL450 is a very popular intermediate level Clarinet. Taking this success further, Yamaha release the 450M. With a Grenadilla exterior, this new model has a plastic interior injected into it to make it more sturdy and travel friendly.

We think:

To combat problems often inherent in wooden instruments, the 450M introduces a state of the art protective layer of resin next to the air column. This innovative technology, which premiered with our oboes, has been brought to the clarinet after extensive engineering specific to the instrument. The upper joint body is drilled out slightly larger around the bore and tone-holes. Thermoplastic ABS resin is injected into the cavity, instantly forming the inner shape of a clarinet. It is designed to preserve as much virtue of traditional clarinets as possible, while its natural appearance is hardly distinguishable from conventional all-wooden models.

Other improvements over the standard 450 model include a new register vent tube shape, which improves pronunciation in the second register. Whereas the YCL-450 needs sufficient air pressure for good response, the YCL-450M offers great response even with low air pressure, making it easy to play even for children.
