This bass clarinet features a two-piece body allowing for a compact case design, also making it a very "school-bus" friendly instrument.

Matte finished ABS resin body
The matte finish gives the clarinet a much better appearance, while the ABS resin body makes the clarinet more lightweight and very durable while giving it a warmer sound and an excellent response.

Redesigned neck angle
The neck angle is now the same as that of the professional models, resulting in a much more comfortable and natural playing position.

Leather pads with plastic resonators
These pads (also used on our saxophones) are longer lasting and provide a better feel with increased projection than standard clarinet pads.
Redesigned register tone hole
This tone hole was scientifically designed and placed for extremely accurate intonation.

Rounded bridge key connector
The rounded key prevents key damage and eliminates the need to hold the keys when putting the instrument together.

New joint system
The rubber rings surrounding the cork help to prevent air leaks, ease assembly and prevent keys from binding.

Compact ABS case
This durable lightweight case is smaller and easier for children to carry, making it much more bus-friendly. This case is also stackable and will take up much less space in the band room.

Great Yamaha, Batman!


I had the pleasure of seeing one of these bad boys come through my department recently. Before I put it on the wall, I HAD to put a reed to it and see how it sounded. Boy, did it sound great! It has quick response in all registers, wonderful tone, and all the extra keys to get you down to those extra low notes. I love this horn, I love Yamaha as a brand, and everyone should try one of these out!
