The Best Possible Start
The Yamaha YCL255S will give you the best possible start to the clarinet. Boasting great intonation with a fantastic sound without a large price tag, the YCL255S will comfortably take you up to a grade 5 standard. Ideal for wind bands or orchestras, the Yamaha student clarinet is perfectly suited for any ensemble.
The Yamaha YCL255S clarinet features everything you need to start learning the clarinet. Crafted the durable ABS resin, the clarinet is a much lighter than similarly priced models. Unlike wooden clarinets, the ABS body won't be susceptible to splits or cracks which is essential for hot and humid climates.
Another development for the YCL255S is the bell which is now made only of solid and durable ABS resin plastic. Inspired by high-end Yamaha clarinets, a 65mm barrel has been added to the design. The barrel is capable of producing a more concentrated and focused tone, with more resistance than previous models.
The silver-plated nickel silver keys provide a softer but warmer sound. New to the design is an adjustable thumb rest and strap ring to accommodate different hands sizes. This is a great advantage for younger musicians as it helps them to develop a proper playing technique. The strap ring brings further comfort and enables players to hold the instrument without any added effort. Another new addition includes durable screws and a silver soldered ring, which are attached to keep the thumb-rest securely in place.
Included with the Yamaha YCL255S clarinet is a lightweight moulded case. This case offers tough protection for your instrument to ensure it stays in the best possible condition. The case features a large exterior pocket for holding all of your music, and has an adjustable shoulder strap for easy transportation between events.
Also included with the Yamaha YCL255S clarinet is a 4C mouthpiece. Made from high-quality phenol resin, the 4C features a design inspired by the Yamaha Custom series. The 4C offers consistent playing technique and is recommended by teachers as a suitable upgrade for avid students. The facing of this series is shorter than the custom series which makes it easier for beginners to play, and is capable of achieving rich characteristic sounds.
