Intermediate clarinet perfection

The Yamaha YCL-450N clarinet offers developing musicians a chance to cultivate their skills with a professional instrument. Handcrafted from rich grenadilla wood, this intermediate Bb clarinet produces a warm, resonant tone that will fill any performance space. Its durable yet responsive nickel-plated keys react to even the most intricate fingerings, allowing for seamless transitions between notes at any tempo. The Yamaha YCL-450N's adjustable thumb rest provides comfort and stability, with the option to adjust to the player's comfort. This exceptional clarinet comes complete with a Yamaha 4C mouthpiece and CLC-400EII hard case to protect your investment.

The YCL-450N features a grenadilla wood body, barrel, and bell that infuse each note with richness and depth. Grenadilla wood is prized for its acoustical properties, creating an instrument with projection, warmth, and tonal complexity that stands up to rigorous performing demands. The wood's natural beauty also gives the YCL-450N an elegant appearance on any stage.

The nickel-plated keys on the YCL-450N respond instantly to the lightest touch, allowing musicians to play with speed, articulation, and control. The keys' durable nickel plating prevents corrosion while providing a smooth surface. High-quality pads create an airtight seal for a consistent, resonant tone with every note.

The YCL-450N's adjustable thumb rest supports proper hand position and technique. Its stationary design helps developing clarinetists maintain a consistent hold and hand posture, which is essential for producing a focused, centered tone. The contoured rest fits comfortably against the thumb, enabling long practice sessions without fatigue.

Yamaha includes high-quality accessories to protect your investment and get you playing right away. The YCL-450N comes with a durable CLC-400EII clarinet case with plush lining, shoulder straps, and storage for accessories. It also includes a Yamaha 4C mouthpiece made of hard rubber for a balanced tone and comfortable playability.
