After extensive testing with an emphasis on sound, Yamaha selected top-quality leather pads. These pads allow breath to flow easily and stress-free while making it easier to produce beautiful, warm tone. Because the surfaces of the pads don’t vibrate when the instrument is played, no spurious pad noise occurs and breath flows directly toward the bell for outstanding projection.

Same bell and barrel design as Custom models

The YCL-650II professional model clarinet features a new 65mm barrel design that produces a focused tone and quick response. Players looking for the tools necessary to maximize their performance will do just that with this clarinet.

Superior playability that helps players concentrate on the music

Reduce thumb discomfort and fatigue

Since there are so many different sizes and shapes of hands, it only makes sense to include a way to accommodate for different hand positions. That’s why you’ll find an adjustable thumb rest specifically designed for player comfort, while needle springs provide faster key action.

Looks as good as it sounds.

A great clarinet should also be easy on the eye – and the YCL-650II certainly is. The unique, natural finish that accompanies this beautiful-sounding instrument is bound to capture any audiences' attention.

Make less mistakes.

In the 650, you'll find longer E/B levers. Additionally, the C#/G# keys are featured. This design reduces the likelihood of fingers slipping off the keys, improving performances, and lowering the chances of mistakes.
