A fantastic young learners first clarinet, the Yamaha YCL-255S is both durable and easy to play. The instrument has been constructed from hardwearing ABS resin to ensure a long life and to make it lightweight. This has been given a matt finish, which more closely resembles wood grain. Not only is the ABS resin plastic used resilient, it also gives the Yamaha YCL255S Clarinet improved bell response, while the bell’s resonance chamber offers powerful projection and accurate intonation. The metal ring has also been removed from the bell to lower overall weight and because the strength of the ABS negates the need for it.
The design of the Yamaha YCL 255S Clarinet’s barrel is been based on that of top-end clarinets, measuring 65mm, to ensure a pure, focussed tone. Silver-plated nickel keys are in place to give a soft, warm sound. Along with its construction and sound production the Yamaha YCL-255S Clarinet also makes an excellent young students instrument because of how comfortable it is to play. In addition to it being lightweight the YCL-255S also offers an adjustable thumb-rest, which fits different sized hands so correct playing technique can be developed easier. Another feature that ensures the comfort of the player is the clarinet’s strap ring, which makes holding the Yamaha YCL-255S effortless.
