YCL-CSGlll is the culmination of years of development and features new mechanisms and design.
Yamaha have re-analyzed and re-evaluated literally every single design specification. New bell, barrel offer a tone of breathtaking richness and depth. The sound is warm yet has a clear focused centre surrounded by a wealth of overtones, resulting in extraordinary beauty and expression.
Bell and Barrel
Slightly plump barrel and thick-walled bell produce a deep tone with rich resonance.
Improved key shape with Yamaha original silver-plating
Ergonomically-designed new key shape offers comfortable and natural key touch. Yamaha-original silver-plating is applied on them, allowing a focused and centred sound.
New Eb lever
A newly shaped Eb lever is adopted as a standard, along which the entire mechanism is totally re-designed as well.
Pads made of cork and leather
Cork pads and leather pads are optimally placed to maximize on their tonal quality, touch and functionality.
New toneholes maximize superior tone quality, even intonation and a uniformed response throughout the full range of the instrument.
New optional low E/F correction key
Yamaha original intonation correction mechanism inspired by the Oehler system (German style) clarinet is available to control low E and F note. This system assures natural finger control, excellent feel and playability.
