A top-tier student clarinet that inspires.

The Yamaha YCL-255 Bb clarinet is an outstanding choice for beginner and intermediate clarinetists. Yamaha combined their expert production techniques with premium features to craft an instrument that produces a warm, resonant tone similar to that of a wooden clarinet. The durable yet lightweight ABS resin body has a matte finish that imitates the look of wood while providing added protection from damage. An adjustable thumb rest and strap ring allows you to find a comfortable hand position and provides extra support when needed.

Focused Tone from Professional-Level Barrel
The YCL-255 has a 65mm barrel based on Yamaha's professional clarinets that helps you easily produce a clear, focused tone. The longer barrel aids in projection and improves intonation, especially in lower notes.

Responsive Keys and Pads for Reliable Performance
Nickel-plated keys and Valentino pads deliver responsive and dependable performance for years to come. The durable pads are less sensitive to temperature changes and humidity and are easy to repair or replace when needed. The silver-soldered ring that connects the keys is firmly attached for added durability.

Ideal for Developing Good Technique
The adjustable thumb rest allows you to find a comfortable hand position based on your hand size and as your hands grow. A neck strap ring gives extra support when needed so you can focus on learning proper technique and producing a great tone. The included 4C mouthpiece is sized for beginners and helps you develop good embouchure and breath control.

Premium Case for Safe Transport
Your YCL-255 clarinet comes with a plush-lined CLC-180 case to keep it protected when transporting to and from lessons or performances. The durable case has straps to keep the clarinet secure and pockets to store small accessories.
