Comments about Yamaha YCL-650 Bb Clarinet:

This is a wood product with a very rich warm tone. Comes with a reed (kind of Hard but will mellow after playing) hard case, cork grease, a cleaning cloth and even a soft case that has a zipper for music and assessories. Key action is fantastic and pads seat consistently. This clarinet is to be played for only 1/2 hour at a time for the first two weeks...presumably for the wood as the moisture and temparature elevating to quickly could crack the instrument.

    Comments about Yamaha YCL-650 Bb Clarinet:

    We needed an upgrade that would make it through high school and college and this is what my son's instructor suggested. He noticed a difference right away from his student clarinet. His instructor wants one for herself!

        A beautiful and rich sounding instrument. This clarinet was purchased to be played in a symphony orchestra by an advancing student. It was ready to play out of the box.

          Very solid choice to move up to...

          By Thomas Rose

          from Undisclosed

          Comments about Yamaha YCL-650 Bb Clarinet:

          My son has been playing the YCL-650 for 3 years (he just completed his Sophomore year in high school). The progress he's made has been amazing (he made his all-state band this year). The tone on this horn is deep and rich. It's a pretty good alternative to moving all the way up to the professional-level horns other manufacturers make (that cost about twice as much).
