Start off right with the Yamaha YCL-250.

The Yamaha YCL-250 Bb Clarinet offers many features students, private instructors, and band directors have come to appreciate in a beginning clarinet. The high impact, resin body of the YCL-250 is impervious to temperature and humidity changes and resists cracking. It features keywork that is durable enough to withstand the pounding it will get in a school band yet remains smooth and easy to use. The best feature we found of YCL-250, however, is the scale. You will be hard pressed to find a student clarinet that plays better in tune. Complete with case, Yamaha 4C mouthpiece, ligature, cap, swab, and cork grease.
All Yamaha wind instruments come with a limited 5-year warranty.

My Clarinet

By Maia Bailey

from Undisclosed

Comments about Yamaha YCL-250 Bb Student Clarinet:

I play in a high school marching band and my clarinet section is not very good. This is due to the other clarinetists who find difficulty in keeping their horn together, however I purchased this Clarinet five years ago and it still works perfectly, the only problem I find with it is it's loose screws or it's tendency to bend keys. The tone is rich, and I prefer it above other Clarinets I have used in the past. I highly recomend this Clarinet

Excellent beginner horn, but there are better

By Will Smith

from Lake Worth, Fl

Comments about Yamaha YCL-250 Bb Student Clarinet:

This instrument features excellent tone quality for a student clarinet. I moved up from a dreary Vito plastic clarinet and my tone is much stronger and darker. Most notes sound very strong, but the tonal color is different on certain notes. The throat tones (middle G, G#, A, and Bb) are a bit sharp and the Bb flat can be airy. It might be me, but I cannot seem to get a funny buzzing sound out when I play the lowest F, F#, and G with the 4c mouthpiece, so I purchased a Lomax Symphony Med-Close. What really amazes me about this student model is the upper register and the altissimo(the notes above high C). The sound is very alive and is very clear. All in all a good instrument.

It's awesome!

By David Kim

Comments about Yamaha YCL-250 Bb Student Clarinet:

Hi my name is David Kim. I am a beginner and I am eight years old. I will turn nine on October 31. I take one lesson every week. I love this clarinet because it has a warm and toneful sound.Also because I love this clarinet is that when I put cork grease and a reed I like, AND do my favorite line, it does not squeak. Also it fits me.I think you should get it. It's awesome.

A Must For Beginers

By Kenny Myers

from Cleveland, Ohio

Comments about Yamaha YCL-250 Bb Student Clarinet:

I highly reccomend this Clarinet. I'm still playing on this and i'm a sophomore in high school! This Clarinet can sound good in Marching Band, Concert Band, and even an Orchestra. Don't let the plastic or the price fool you. This Clarinet is worth the money. I once compared a Vandoren B45 mouthpiece to the Yamaha mouthpiece on this Clarinet and I found the Yamaha one better! This Clarinet will last you about 4 to 5 years depending on whether or not you're in marching band or how well you take care of it. This is the King of all the plastic Clarinets and the sound and playability is great. From here, I suggest the Buffet E11, but until then, for beginers, THIS IS A MUST!

I totally love it

Comments about Yamaha YCL-250 Bb Student Clarinet:

This is a wonderful instrument. In my band, the 1st three chairs in the clarinet section are Yamaha's. I recommend this to any one. Its tone and its appearance are beautiful. I've been playing for half of a year and I got 1st chair in band 3 times and second chair once.

Very Good

By Dauphin

from Toronto, Ontario, Canada

Comments about Yamaha YCL-250 Bb Student Clarinet:

I have encountered no problems with this clarinet. The tone quality is much better than the school-owned clarinet I was using in band and in class. The difference was very noticeable! If you're a beginning or intermediate clarinet player, you should definitely consider this model!
