Yamaha YCL-255S Clarinet

The YCL-255S clarinet is the perfect start for clarinet students. The YCL-255S succeeds its popular predecessor, the YCL-250S. Made from durable ABS resin, the YCL-255S is easy to handle and with the new adjustable thumb-rest and improved strap ring, it is now more comfortable to play. By removing the metal ring from the bell, the instrument has been made even lighter yet still remains very robust. Accurate intonation and immediate response from the YCL-255S help students to produce a round sound.

The Yamaha YCL-255S is an excellent student clarinet that is more than capable of allowing you to reach all grades.
