A student bass clarinet built to last.

The Yamaha YCL-221 student bass clarinet is designed with beginning musicians in mind. Its durable yet lightweight ABS resin body withstands the rigors of practice and performance while remaining easy to transport and assemble. The redesigned neck angle provides a comfortable, natural playing position, even during long rehearsals. High-quality leather pads last longer and project sound better than standard pads. Precisely designed and placed tone holes guarantee accurate intonation for the developing ear. A rounded bridge key connector prevents damage to the keys and simplifies putting the instrument together.

ABS Resin Body Offers Durability and Easy Transport
The YCL-221's ABS resin body is resistant to damage from temperature changes, humidity and minor impacts. Its two-piece breakdown design fits in the included compact case for easy transport to and from school or performances. The matte finish gives the bass clarinet a professional look while keeping costs affordable for student musicians and school band programs.

Redesigned Neck Angle Provides Comfort for Developing Players
Yamaha redesigned the neck angle to match that of their professional bass clarinets, resulting in a comfortable, natural playing position for students. The redesigned neck angle reduces strain, even during longer practice sessions and performances. Its design encourages proper hand positioning and technique early on.

High-Quality Pads and Precise Tone Holes For Superior Sound
Long-lasting leather pads provide a better feel and projection than standard pads. They are also more resistant to damage from temperature and humidity changes. Precisely designed and placed tone holes are engineered for accurate intonation to train student's ears. These high-quality components allow beginning bass clarinetists to produce a rich, focused sound.

Rounded Keys and New Joint System For Easy Assembly and Play
The YCL-221's rounded bridge key connector prevents damage to the keys and makes assembly simple. Its new joint system, with rubber rings surrounding the cork joints, prevents air leaks, allows for easy assembly and avoids keys binding together. These features reduce frustration for students and make for a more enjoyable learning experience.
