The most popular bass clarinet for schools.

The Yamaha YCL-221 Low Eb Bass Clarinet has many of the same features as professional models, but the ABS brushed resin body keeps this horn very affordable. Proven quality and durability keeps Yamaha bass clarinets a top choice among band directors.
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 its 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 prevent air leaks, ease assembly and prevent keys from binding.
All Yamaha wind instruments come with a limited 5-year warranty.

    Comments about Yamaha YCL-221 Student Bass Clarinet with Low Eb:

    This bass clarinet is amazing!!!! The only thing is to get used to the amount of air you put in. It uses a different amount other than the clarinet. Also, the high notes are a bit rough around the edges.
    The tone is rich and deep, which is PERFECT!! Hopefully, other people will buy this and also agree on how amazing and beautiful this instrument truly is.
