YCL-255 Standard Bb Clarinet.
The YCL-255 combines state-of-the-art production expertise with high-end Yamaha clarinet features. The result is an outstanding instrument that delivers a warm, resonant tone that is remarkably similar to that of a wood clarinet. It features an ABS resin body with a matte finish that imitates that of a wood clarinet and an adjustable thumb-rest with a neck strap ring that allows for even those with small hands to easily hold the instrument.
New adjustable thumb-rest and strap ring
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
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.
A 65mm barrel based on high-end Yamaha clarinet designs produces a focused tone.
The attractive matte finish simulates the actual grain of wood while providing the added durability of ABS resin plastic.
Valentino pads are more durable, easier to repair, and less sensitive to temperature changes.
