Expert Review

The Yamaha YCL-CSGII eliminates as much metal as possible, allowing the clarinets wooden body to resonate freely and naturally. This allows for more reverberation of the instrument and rich sound thanks in part to the additional ringing of overtones from the unencumbered wood body. The focus on natural wood includes removing a metal ring in the bell of the instrument, further enhancing the natural beauty of the instrument’s sound.

Hand-crafted for precise placement and consistent shaping, a series of undercut tone holes help even out the sound across the entire range of this instrument. The bore has been designed to give the player more flexibility in tone color while a low E/F correction lever has been included in the key system to stabilize notes in the lower register of the clarinet. Available with silver-plated or Hamilton plated keys (Gold-like in color), the Yamaha YCL-CSGII presents another great option for the professional clarinetist at a slightly higher price point.Rating: 4/5
