Durability and ease of play make this standard clarinet the clear choice for the beginning clarinetist.
The YCL-250 combines state-of-the-art production expertise with high-end Yamaha clarinet features. The result is an outstanding entry-level instrument that delivers a warm, resonant tone that is remarkably similar to that of a wood clarinet. It features an ABS resin body with a matte finish that imitates the look of a wood clarinet.
A 65mm barrel based on high-end Yamaha clarinet designs helps to produces a focused tone.
The attractive matte finish simulates the actual grain of wood while providing the added durability of ABS resin.
Valentino pads are more durable, easier to repair, and less sensitive to temperature changes.

*Baritones are in excellent condition, inspected and maintained by a YAMAHA certified technician.
*Honed valves - The precise fit between valve casings and pistons after honing means no air leakage.
*Pressure-formed tubing - Perfectly rounded tubing results in less turbulence and a smoother air flow, thus allowing for an excellent scale and reduced resistance.
*Laser-fused pluzuma welded bell - A high-energy laser fuses the brass together for a virtually seamless bell which allows continuous even vibrations.
*Hand-lapped valves and slides - Hand-lapping valves and slides ensures an absolutely perfect fit and seal between the valve pistons and casing or slide parts. Such a perfect fit helps to achieve smooth air flow and smooth action and improve the response and intonation of the instrument.
*Well balanced - All Yamaha marching instruments are well-balanced so they are easy to hold while marching.
*Heavy bracing - All Yamaha marching instruments have heavy bracing throughout so they are more durable at vulnerable points and can withstand marching band.
