Manufacturer's Description

The new YCL 255 clarinets are the perfect start for young clarinet students. Made from durable ABS resin they are easy to handle and with the new adjustable thumb-rest and improved strap ring, they are now more comfortable to play.

By removing the metal ring from the bell we have made the instrument even lighter yet it still remains very robust. Accurate intonation and immediate response help students to produce a round sound.

New adjustable thumb-rest and strap ring

New adjustable thumbrest

A new adjustable thumb-rest accommodates different sized hands helping the player develop proper playing technique. In addition, a strap ring allows for the instrument to be held without extra effort. Firmer screws and silver soldered ring gives this new feature excellent durability.

Newly redesigned bell

New Bell Design

A new bell made only of solid and durable ABS resin plastic results in a lighter instrument with improved response. A resonance chamber in the bell aids in projection and improves intonation in lower notes.

Barrel design

A 65mm barrel based on high-end Yamaha clarinet designs produces a focused tone.

Matte finish

The attractive matte finish simulates the actual grain of wood while providing the added durability of ABS resin plastic.
