Yamaha | YCL-CX II A Clarinet


Out of stock


The CX is the first of the Yamaha Custom A clarinet range. All of which are hand finished and crafted in Japan. The CX II A Clarinet model, released in 2022, is the latest iteration of this model that features a range of improvements including leather pads, a new thumbrest design, a modified low C/F left hand key mechanism and extended E/B levers and C#/G# keys. These technical changes to the ergonomics of the Clarinet, make it more comfortable to hold and play. Yamaha have also introduced a new surface polishing technique using a natural oil, free of additives, which aid in fully retaining the natural tonal qualities of the wood.

The CX II is characterised by a full, round sound with an immediate clarity to the tone. The toneholes of the Clarinet are tapered and the bell is finished with a silver-plated ring. These features contribute to the presence and openness of its tone, ideal for players specialising in solo or band playing.

The Custom CX II offers the professional Clarinettist a darker more powerful sound allowing the player greater versatility. Being the first in the range of custom series clarinets it has all of the benefits of a handcrafted clarinet at a very competitive price.
