This Yamaha YCL-255 Upgraded Student Bb Clarinet combines state-of-the-art production expertise with high-end Yamaha clarinet features. The result is an outstanding entry-level instrument that delivers a warm, resonant tone that is remarkably similar to that of a wood clarinet. It features an ABS resin body with a matte finish that imitates the look of a wood clarinet and an adjustable thumb-rest with a neck strap ring that allows for even those with small hands to easily hold the instrument.


The newly designed adjustable thumb-rest fits a variety of hand sizes, allowing the player to develop proper playing technique. Further, a strap ring enables the instrument to be held with less effort. A silver soldered ring and firmer screws give this new feature excellent durability.


A new solid and durable ABS resin bell made only of top quality materials results in an improved response and overall lighter instrument. The bell's resonance chamber aids intonation in lower notes and improves projection.

Excellent Review by ClarinetDad
Great student clarinet. Excellent quality, sound, and value. My child is more than happy with this clarinet, we will get many years use out of this one. I'm very happy with The Instrument Place too! I received communication every step of the process, the clarinet arrived quicker than I expected, and the price was great. Thank you! (Posted on 11/8/2018)
