Seasoned grenadilla body and sculpted silver-plated keys
Grenadilla is the material of choice for professional-grade clarinets, due to its dense grain, moisture-repellent qualities, eye-catching look, and warm tone. For the YCL-CSVR, Yamaha selected the highest-quality grenadilla, which is seasoned for improved performance. The YCL-CSVR is populated with 17 sculpted, silver-plated keys, with a thick key plating for added expressiveness. The keys are fitted with durable leather pads — a favorite among clarinet players at Irvine Art & Music — to provide you with a dynamic feel, a rich tonality, and buzz-free playing. Moreover, the YCL-CSVR sports tapered tone holes with a hand-tapered undercut, ensuring optimum intonation and a uniform response up and down the instrument.
Hand finished for superior performance
Beyond the grenadilla body, barrel, and bell, and superior silver-plated keys, the Yamaha YCL-CSVR boasts several top-notch appointments and hand-finished touches: blue steel needle springs are on deck to give you a smoother feel and swift action; a newly designed 65mm barrel upgrades your tone; and the YCL-CSVR’s traditional bell shape eschews scalloping in the chamber to enhance presence and focus. When you get your hands on the YCL-CSVR for the first time, you’ll be blown away by its exquisite feel and sound. It’s a richly expressive, heirloom-quality instrument that will inspire your performances.
