YCLCX Custom Bb Clarinet from Yamaha

Professional clarinet by Yamaha with a grenadilla body.

We think:

The YCLCX Custom Bb Clarinet is beautifully hand-crafted from carefully selected grenadilla wood. This Clarinet features perfectly balanced, silver-plated keys that create the light and even touch and allow you to play freely. The intonation and tone is extremely accurate and well-rounded throughout the full range of the instrument. Custom Series clarinets are perfect for intermediate to advanced students or perhaps a very keen beginner. As oppose to the Yamaha SE Series clarinets, the CS Series has a shorter and narrower inner bore taper and a longer straight section. This helps deliver a concentrated and clear, straight tone.

Yamaha clarinets are split into custom and student ranges. The main difference between the two is the amount of time and craftsmanship taken to manufacture the instrument. The Tone holes of Custom range are more complex in terms of shape. Initially going through the same process as the standard and student models, the tone holes are ground by a cutter once more in order to boost the precision of the shape. This creates a better sound quality and resonance. The keys of Custom range clarinets are also precisely filed separately to improve the touch, playability and the appearance of the instrument.
