However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 90 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first two years

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

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.

Everything You Need

The Yamaha YCL-221 Bass Clarinet body separates into two pieces and so it fits into a very compact and lightweight case. The attractive and stylish case included in this pack is made to stack for easy storage, and offers extremely durable protection for the instrument. As well as this a mouthpiece, ligature, and reed have been included. Yamaha's standard series mouthpieces enable smooth attacks, secure control and easy playability. At the perfect weight balance for an all-round use this mouthpiece is the perfect addition to this outfit. This all-in-one package ensures players have everything they need to get started straight out of the box.
