Yamaha YCL-650

Many thanks to Greg N in CA for giving me the opportunity to review this clarinet.

Serial #112135 marked only at the top of the RH joint.

Barrel: 65.26mm

Bore LH joint top: 14.75mm

Bore LH joint at bottom: 14.50mm

Intonation results taken when playing loud and not lipping. See how to interpret these results on the Model Comparison Page.

For this test, I pulled 0mm at the barrel and 0mm at the center tenon.

Intonation summary: This is wonderful poly-cylindrical bore intonation. This is a professional level instrument.

Key work quality: The key work is both beautiful and very sturdy. They keys are silver plated. The springs tend to be a bit stiff, which could slow one down in some technical passages.

This clarinet is most appropriate for: Anyone, but especially the serious student or even professional.

Condition issues noted: None.
