An inimitable blend of leading technology and craftsmanship goes into each and every instrument. The products are developed and perfected to significantly enhance the overall precision and playing experience.

Grenadilla Wood Body

The Yamaha YCL450 features an African Blackwood (otherwise known as Grenadilla) body, which is regularly used for intermediate and professional level clarinets, due to its highly desired acoustic properties. The Grenadilla wood provides a rich, weighted and focused tone, with enhanced projection. This makes the sound more desirable for the advancing student, over plastic and composite clarinets.

Design Features

The Yamaha YCL450 Clarinet features silver-plated nickel silver keys for a warmer, softer sound. Also new to the design is an adjustable thumb rest and strap ring which accommodates most hands sizes. This is a great advantage for student players as it helps them to adopt a proper playing technique. As players grow they can adjust this rest to suit their needs.

Included Accessories

The Yamaha YCL450 Clarinet comes equipped with a CL4C mouthpiece and plastic mouthpiece cap. This clarinet also includes a semi-hard case to help keep the instrument protected during travel. The case can be carried in multiple ways to ensure a comfortable travelling experience.
