New Design from Yamaha Duet+
The Yamaha Duet+ YCL450M Bb Clarinet employs innovative techniques to form a protective layer next to the air column, which makes it a clarinet that is much easier to play. The upper joint body is drilled out slightly larger around the bore and tone-holes. Thermoplastic ABS resin is injected into the cavity, instantly forming the inner shape of a clarinet. It is designed to preserve as much virtue of traditional clarinets as possible, while its natural appearance is hardly distinguishable from conventional all-wooden models. Silver-plated nickel keys give a softer, warmer sound.
New Adjustable Thumb-Rest and Pivot Screw
A new adjustable thumb-rest accommodates different sized hands helping the player develop proper playing technique. In addition, a strap ring allows for the instrument to be held without extra effort. Firmer screws and silver soldered ring gives this new feature excellent durability. The YCL-450M incorporates the same taper screws as YCL-650 that makes adjustments easier than ever.
New Second Register Vent Tube
A new register vent tube shape improves pronunciation in the second register. Whereas the YCL-450 needs sufficient air pressure for good response, the YCL-450M offers great response, even with low air pressure, making it easy to play even for children.
