YCL-650 – Yamaha 650 Professional Clarinet
Handmade in Japan – Exception Performance and Value
The YCL-650 is an excellent alternative for those who are serious about their clarinet performance but need to watch their budget. The specifications of its bell, barrel, toneholes and other features are very close to those of the Custom SEV model, so its sound is warm, round, and deeply resonant. Made of carefully select and seasoned Grenadilla wood and boasting an enormous amount of handcrafting and hand finishing, the 650 features tapered toneholes which are undercut by hand for precise intonation and superior tonal balance.
Special Bell Design
Players will find that the YCL-650 has a response to it that it an immediate upgrade from other clarinets. This is largely due to the unique bell design that features a “resonance chamber” inside the bore of the bell. This chamber will help to improve response throughout a clarinet’s range and improves lower note intonation. Combined with the amazing affordability of instrument of this quality and it’s easy to see why the YCL-650 is one of the best selling products that Yamaha makes!
Every instrument we send out to a customer is not released from us unless it has been completely setup in our shop first. This is because the setup on a musical instrument is of the utmost importance! Sometimes, a clarinet (regardless of who the manufacturer) comes in needing 20 minutes of adjustments and then the very next one can require 2 hours! So if you were to get 5 of the same model right out of the box, they will all play different. This leads players to believe that they are “good” or “bad” clarinets. The reality is that the one that was the best out of the 5 was likely the one that needed the least amount of work and the “bad” clarinet was the one that needed 2 hours worth of adjustments!
Once the same 5 clarinets are properly regulated and adjusted to perfection, they become near identical instruments. Even the pickiest of players would be challenged to pick a true “favorite”. However, since most stores do not or even can not perform this setup, the player never knows this and is simply relying on the luck of the draw. This is why we perform our setup (in our www.ClarinetRepairs.com ProShop) on them before delivering your new clarinet to you. You trust us with your purchase and we want to make sure that you are rewarded by giving you your ideal instrument setup flawlessly!
