Design Influenced by Pro Models
The YCL211II features materials that are normally used on professional models but for a budget friendly price. Special crafting techniques are used to produce the bell and neck, improving the roundness for better resonance. The keys were influenced by the YCL621 model for smooth comfortable performance.
Natural Neck Angle and Ease of Playing
The Yamaha YCL211II features a neck angle comparable to a soprano clarinet. The neck has a natural feeling comfort, endurance and great playability. Yamaha uses its hi-tech production capability to offer this neck angle on a student model. The YCL221II also includes ergonomically designed key positioning to ensure comfort during use. The ABS resin body is lighter than other wooden models and therefore easier to hold and play. These three factors make this instrument much comfier to use for the individual and so creates a nicer experience for the player. To finish off the instrument Yamaha has used a stunning matte finish that looks just as good as a professional grenadilla model.
Stronger Keys & Thumb Hook
After extensive research, Yamaha have come up with a new stronger alloy for the key mechanism. This enhanced durability is especially important on a bass clarinet with its long key rods. The positioning and size of the register key tone hole was scientifically determined to give the most accurate intonation and strong tonal projection. The new register key mechanism has been created for stable smooth action. In addition to this the YCL211II also includes an adjustable thumb hook that provides comfortable positioning of the right hand. The thumb hook is made of ABS resin so that it can be strong and durable as well as flexible to prevent chaffing.
New Register Key Design
To provide smooth and stable action Yamaha has created a new register key mechanism. The positioning and size of the register key tone hole was scientifically analysed to get the most accurate intonation and strong tonal projection.
Easy to Assemble
To produce an effortless assembly Yamaha has used a unique combination of natural cork and synthetic rings. A rounded key connector ensures that the keys fit together during assembly of the upper and lower joints.
