Yamaha YCL-250 OCCASION
One of the smartest selections for student clarinetists.
The Yamaha YCL-250 Bb Clarinet offers many features students, private instructors, and band directors have come to appreciate in a beginning clarinet. Made of ABS resin, the YCL-250 is exceptionally durable, maintenance-free, and resistant to moisture. It additionally features the revolutionary new 'V Pads,' which are extremely resistant to damage from moisture or oil, a requirement of student clarinets. They are easier to care for than traditional pads, and provide long-lasting adjustments. For student instrumentalists, the chores associated with maintaining a wood clarinet are removed without a drastic sacrifice in terms of sound and playability.
The YCL-250 incorporates much of what Yamaha understands from crafting its high-end models, including a 65mm barrel design that produces a focused tone and quick response. This will help new students in finding those hard to hit first pitches while giving an edge to students who have been playing a while longer. It also features a new bell design that aids in projection and improves intonation in lower notes, allowing for the consistency and confidence in learning things correctly the first time.
The 'V' in V-pads stands for Valentino. The Valentino pads are more durable, easier to repair, and less sensitive to temperature changes than other pads making them the student model choice. The instrument's matte finish is reminiscent of the more expensive wood models. This attractive finish simulates the actual grain of wood while providing the advantage of a durable ABS resin material. Students will no longer feel uncomfortable playing their plastic model next to other students with wood models. And as we all know, music is an image-oriented business!
This clarinet is a solid choice that will give your student every opportunity for success.
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 on the 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.
