The YCL-250 incorporates all the lessons we’ve learned from crafting our high-end models. Made of ABS resin, it is exceptionally durable, maintenance-free, and resistant to moisture. And it features the revolutionary new ‘V Pads’. These synthetic pads are extremely resistant to damage from moisture or oil, are easier to care for than traditional pads, and provide long-lasting adjustments.
New barrel design
The YCL-250 student model clarinet incorporates some of the distinct qualities of Yamaha’s professional and custom clarinets. One of these features is a 65mm barrel design that produces a focused tone and quick response. This will help new students in finding those hard to hit first pitches while giving an edge to students who have been playing a while longer.
New bell design
Nothing can be more frustrating to new students who are learning notes and fingerings for the first time than a soft sounding, out of tune instrument. A new resonance chamber in the bell of the YCL-250 aids in projection and improves intonation in lower notes, allowing for the consistency and confidence in learning things correctly the first time.
Everyone knows the rigorous lifestyle that a student model instrument endures. It only makes sense to use equipment that will match the lifestyle. Valentino pads are more durable, easier to repair, and less sensitive to temperature changes than other pads making them the student model choice.
The look of this plastic model is reminiscent of the more expensive wood models due to its matte finish. This attractive finish simulates the actual grain of wood while providing the advantage of a durable ABS resin material. Students will no longer feel uncomfortable playing their plastic model next to other students with wood models.
