The YCL-255 offers high-end Yamaha features on a student level instrument!

The YCL-255 combines state-of-the-art production expertise with high-end Yamaha clarinet features. The result is an outstanding entry-level instrument that delivers a warm, resonant tone that is remarkably similar to that of a wood clarinet. It features an ABS resin body with a matte finish that imitates the look of a wood clarinet and an adjustable thumb-rest with a neck strap ring that allows for even those with small hands to easily hold the instrument.

The YCL-255's Adjustable thumb-rest for improved player comfort and new neck strap ring to allow the instrument to be held without any extra effort, coupled with firmer screws than previous models and a silver soldered ring that give these new features excellent durability The new bell is made of solid ABS resin which reuslts in a ligher weight and better response.  The bell's new resonance chamber aids in projection and improves the instrument's intonation. The 65mm barrel is designed after those seen on professional level Yamaha clarinets and gives a strong, focused tone. The YCL-255 also features Valentino pads, which are more durable, easier to repair, and less sensitive to temperature changes than standard clarinet pads found on most other student models.
