Featuring a bell shape and barrel design similar to that of the V Series, the YCL450M offers a surprisingly 'professional' sound with an easy response. The upper joint body incorporates Duet+ technology where thermoplastic ABS resin is injected into the cavity, instantly forming the inner bore of the Clarinet. It is designed to preserve as much as 90% of the wooden portion, while its natural appearance is un distinguishable from conventional all-wooden models.
Yamaha YCL450M Clarinet
When designing the YCL-450 Series, we conceived it as an instrument that a player just starting out, would want to continue playing well into the future. These are all Grenadilla instruments designed with the know-how gained through years of experience crafting professional level instruments. The YCL-450M additionally features our “Duet+” treatment applied to the instrument bore making the instrument more durable and less susceptible to the effects of humidity and temperature.
