Yamaha YCL 450N B Flat Clarinet
This Yamaha YCL 450N Bb clarinet is a commission sale for Clarinets Direct. It has been owned and played by a University Music student, who has just up-graded her instrument. The clarinet has been fully overhauled in our workshop and is sold with 1 year warranty. The nickel silver plated key work is in fine condition, with only one patch of wear to the throat G# key. The wood has no cracks or damage it is in fine order throughout. The serial numbers are 109042.The Yamaha 450 is the top selling rival to the Buffet E11. It has a couple of major advantages over its Buffet rival: 1. The wood tends to give less trouble than the E11, which indeed, has developed such a poor reputation in this regard, that the Buffet E11 "France" is now a deleted model in the Buffet range, and has been re-badged E12. Yamaha quality control and build quality are exemplary, and these instruments are easy to live with and perfect for the advancing student. 2. The instrument has a "voicing" groove in the bell, in common with the more expensive models in the Yamaha range and also the Buffet Prestige RC. The supplied m'piece is a used Yamaha 4C, in very good condition, as the original owner used a different m'piece. The original case is in very good condition.
