product description

65mm barrel
The YCL-400AD Advantage wood clarinet incorporates some of the distinct qualities of Yamaha's professional and custom clarinets. One of these features is a 65mm barrel design that produces a focused tone and quick response. Players looking to "step-up" their performance will do just that with this instrument.

Bell design
Nothing can be more frustrating than a soft sounding, out of tune instrument. A New resonance chamber in the bell of the YCL-400AD aids in projection and improves intonation in lower notes, allowing for consistency and confidence.
"Blue" steel spring material

Part of making the YCL-400AD "feel" better is the upgrade in spring material. Blue steel springs give the keys a lighter touch and feel while producing a smooth, quick action.

Sculptured, nickel-plated keys
The nickel-plated keys provide a more clear and focused tone. Also, the nickel-plated keys of the YCL-400AD provide a good alternative for people who have an allergic reaction to silver-plating. In order to make the keys to the appropriate strength level, a technique called power forging is used. The results of this hi-tech process are keys that are exceptionally durable and contoured to the best possible ergonomic shape.
Straight tone holes with tapered undercut

Straight tone holes with tapered undercuts provide outstanding intonation and response making the YCL-400AD play like a pro-model instrument.
