Yamaha 450 Clarinet

Yamaha 450 Wooden Clarinet

In their range of clarinets the Yamaha 450 Clarinet is the least expensve available. In the Buffet Crampon range it is similar in price to the E11. This is what Yamaha say about their cheapest wooden clarinet.


"New 65mm barrel.The Yamaha 450 intermediate 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. Players looking to "step-up" their performance will do just that with this instrument.
New bell design. Nothing can be more frustrating than a soft sounding, out of tune instrument. A new resonance chamber in the bell of the Yamaha 450 aids in projection and improves intonation in lower notes, allowing for consistency and confidence.
"Blue" steel spring material. Intermediate instruments need to feel different than student model instruments. Part of making the Yamaha 450 clarinet "feel" better is the upgrade in spring material. Blue steel springs give the keys a lighter touch and feel while producing a smooth, quick action.

Sculptured, silver-plated keys
The silver-plated keys provide not only an enhanced appearance, but also a wonderful feel for the players. In order to make the keys to the appropriate strength level, a technique called power forging is used. The result of this hi-tech process are keys that are exceptionally durable and contoured to the best possible ergonomic shape.
Straight tone holes with tapered undercut. Yamaha intermediate model instruments set themselves aside with their use of professional materials and features. Straight tone holes with tapered undercuts provide outstanding intonation and response making the YCL-450 play like a pro model instrument"
