Yamaha YCL-255S Bb Clarinet
Student model in ABS Resin finish with Silver-plated keys
The new YCL-255 clarinets are the perfect start for young clarinet students. Made from durable ABS resin they are easy to handle and with the new adjustable thumb-rest and improved strap ring, they are now more comfortable to play.
By removing the metal ring from the bell we have made the instrument even lighter yet it still remains very robust.
- Accurate intonation and immediate response help students to produce a round sound.
- Silver-plated keys
- Silver-plated nickel silver keys give a softer, warmer sound.
- New adjustable thumb-rest and strap ring
- A new adjustable thumb-rest accommodates different sized hands helping the player develop proper playing technique. In addition, a strap ring allows for the instrument to be held without extra effort. Firmer screws and silver soldered ring gives this new feature excellent durability.
- Newly redesigned bell
- A new bell made only of solid and durable ABS resin plastic results in a lighter instrument with improved response. A resonance chamber in the bell aids in projection and improves intonation in lower notes.
Yamaha YFL-212 Flute
Silver-Plated Headjoint, Body & Footjoint
The quality of the musical instrument you learn on can have a huge impact on how your playing develops and how motivated you are to continue learning. This is especially true for brass and woodwind instruments. We’ve worked hard to ensure every Yamaha student flute model avoids the pitfalls of cheaper instruments – which so often perform inconsistently and unpredictably leading to students having to ‘fight’ with their instrument which hinders their progress.
- Toneholes: Drawn and curled
- Key type: Covered
- Key system: Offset G
- Split E mechanism: Not Included
- Body material: Nickel Silver
An inimitable blend of leading technology and craftsmanship goes into each and every Yamaha flute. New refinements for the YFL-212 include pointed key arms contributing to an elegant aesthetic and a completely revised key crafting process that significantly enhances overall precision.
Additionally, the YFL-212 features a lip plate designed to guide beginners toward proper breath utilisation and keys with dimensions and angles for optimum balance and easy playability. These and other details are some of the reasons why our student and intermediate flutes have become bestsellers worldwide.
Yamaha YAS-280 Eb Alto Saxophone
Student model in Gold lacquer
The YAS/YTS-280 saxophones offer a perfect start because they are designed with the young beginner in mind. Relatively light-weight and ergonomically shaped, they are easy to hold and to play. The intonation is perfect, as you would expect from Yamaha, and it is easy to get a great sound. The Yamaha design offers beginners optimum support, thus greatly assisting both learning progress and creativity.
A redesigned neck receiver promotes a quick response and ease of play while also increasing the durability of the mechanism.
Improved Low B-C# connection
An improved mechanism from low B-C# ensures the consistent closing of the low C# key and promotes a clear response from notes in the low range of the instrument.
All Yamaha saxophones feature an adjustable thumb-rest to allow for precise and comfortable hand and fingering position.
Yamaha YTR-2330 Bb Trumpet
In Gold Lacquer
The YTR-2330 trumpet is the perfect starter instrument for students. The main focus for the design was on a light and easy to play trumpet with a great sound and perfect intonation. Yamaha design instruments with an emphasis on the ergonomics so that they offer beginners optimum support thereby greatly assisting learning, progress and creativity.
To help create a lighter instrument, the YTR-2330 has been designed without a brace on the main tuning slide and benefits from the ideal thickness two-piece yellow brass bell. The monel alloy pistons are well known for their good, consistent action and minimise the need for maintenance.
Yellow brass bell
The newly redesigned, durable yet light two-piece bell is made of yellow brass for optimal playability and to promote good technique and endurance.
New piston, piston caps and buttons
Highly durable monel alloy pistons as well as newly designed piston buttons and bottom caps help lengthen the life of the instrument while also maximizing sound quality.
New tuning slides
The 2nd and main tuning slides are produced using the same method as high-end Yamaha models, which provides stability, a more refined tonal colour and added durability.
