Elevate your performance with the Yamaha YCL650, a professional model designed with the essence of Yamaha's Custom models. This clarinet combines classic craftsmanship with innovative features to deliver a truly exceptional musical experience.

Rich and Warm Tone: The YCL650 is renowned for its warm, rich tone that resonates with clarity and depth. This superior sound quality is achieved through the use of leather pads, carefully selected after extensive testing to emphasize sound purity. These pads ensure smooth breath flow and ease of play, allowing musicians to produce beautiful tones effortlessly.

Optimal Playing Feel: Experience the ideal resistance that enhances ample breath flow, enabling expressive and dynamic playing without undue strain. The precise construction of the YCL650 ensures that breath is channeled directly toward the bell, promoting outstanding projection and clear articulation.

Professional Bell and Barrel Design: Sharing the same bell and barrel design as Yamaha's Custom models, the YCL650 benefits from a meticulously crafted taper that greatly influences resonance, tone and intonation. The barrel's shape is optimised for efficient air flow, while the bell features an original Yamaha shape, enhancing the B intonation and overall sound richness.

Superior Playability: Designed to help musicians focus on their musical expression, the YCL650 features an adjustable thumb rest with a strap ring. This ergonomic thumb rest can be customised to individual comfort, significantly reducing thumb discomfort and fatigue and it accommodates players of all sizes, adapting as the musician grows and advances. 

Enhanced Key Design for Reliable Operation: Each key on the YCL650 is adjusted by hand, using techniques derived from Yamaha's Custom models, to ensure an excellent tactile response and comfort during performance. The design includes longer E/B levers and C#/G# keys, which reduce the risk of fingering errors by preventing fingers from slipping off the keys.
