Yamaha Custom CSGIII Clarinets Feature Innovative Keywork and Advanced Ergonomics
ANAHEIM (January 19, 2017) – Yamaha today unveiled the Custom CSGIII Bb and A clarinets — two fine instruments that offer players a broad range of sound character, from deep and beautiful to light and colorful.
The CSGIII features keys with ergonomically comfortable positioning that allows for relaxed hand placement, an important and oft overlooked consideration. A low E/F pitch correction mechanism assists with typically hard-to-tune notes, and the optimal mix of leather and cork pads allow for a broader range of sound character options. Finally, bore design updates and strategically placed raised tone holes give players more expressive freedom and a rich sound throughout any dynamic. Combined with the high standards of quality and consistency found in Yamaha instruments, these new clarinets are an exceptional option for advanced clarinetists.
"The market demands musically-flexible, high-quality clarinets for professional musicians," said Brian Petterson, marketing manager, wind instruments, Yamaha Corporation of America. "The Custom CSGIII clarinets provide players — from pros to high school and college students — with flexibility of sound character while also addressing the high standards of playability that discerning customers require."
