Standard model. This bass clarinet is made of ABS resin but its sound is as deep and open as that of a selected grenadilla instrument.
Never before has a study model offered such a richness of timbre. The YCL-221 model has sound qualities very close to those of a professional instrument. On hearing it, it is even difficult to believe that it is not made of high-end grenadilla. On the other hand, its ease of emission and its flawless accuracy will help the beginner to play better. The secret of this remarkable instrument comes from the fact that it uses the same base of body and the same design of fireplaces as our professional models. And its appearance is commensurate with its sound qualities: the mat finish gives the resistant ABS resin the grain of the wood. What other manufacturer than Yamaha could give you such quality in this price range?
Based on our professional models
For the jar and the pavilion, we used the same materials and production techniques as for our professional model YCL-621, which promotes better resonance. The whole mechanism is also based on the YCL-621 for a smooth and precise action.
A natural jar angle
The YCL-221 model has a jar angle similar to that of a soprano clarinet for increased comfort and better resistance. Thanks to its hi-tech production methods, Yamaha is the only manufacturer able to offer this angle on a study model.
Easy to hold / Easy to play
The positioning of the keys has been calculated to achieve perfect ergonomics while the ABS resin, lighter than wood, promotes grip and playing comfort. The superb matte finish resembles the appearance of grenadilla .
After extensive research, Yamaha specialists have found a new, ultra-resistant alloy for the mechanism. An extremely important point on the bass clarinet, because of the length of the rods.
