So happy with this instrument.

By Josh-hDGVf

from Oakland, CA

Comments about Yamaha YCL-450 Series Intermediate Clarinet:

Just got mine in the mail the other day, and it sounds absolutely beautiful. Warm sound. Beautiful dark brown wood. Couldn't be happier. Upgraded from the standard Yamaha student model, and I notice a huge difference in quality.

Comments about Yamaha YCL-450 Series Intermediate Clarinet:

I have owned the Yamaha YCL-450 for roughly 2 years now and i am very satisfied with it. If you are looking for an intermediate level clarinet this is unbeatable for the price. Most people look at the Buffet E-11 in addition to this model however from experience i have noticed that with Buffet instruments prices tend to be substantially higher with little to no difference in the quality/features.Overall i would recommend this instrument to anyone.Pros:great sounddurableinexpensivewider bell (for better projection)Cons:The one problem i had with this instrument is that the B key dosent work unless you press very hard (i have noticed this on several yamahas) hoverer this is a very easy adjustment that can be done with a screwdriver

I have played the clarinet for many years, but the sound, quality and beauty of this instrument are hard to beat. Yamaha is musically 1st class, and the price was excellent.

      Comments about Yamaha YCL-450 Series Intermediate Clarinet:

      I'm reviewing based on my daughter's comments. She's and advanced middle school player (plays with HS Band) and this is her first Intermediate clarinet. She said that it is easy to play and has really enjoyed it so far (only have had for a few weeks). The wood looks very nice as do the keys and pads compared to her Student clarinet. I've also noticed that when she's learning new pieces, that I haven't heard any squeaking. We are following the break in recommendations for a wood clarinet, so once that period is over I'm sure that I'll hear her put hours into playing.
