The YCL-221 bass clarinet boasts the new pro-neck angle. The pro-neck angle is exclusive to this model and enables a more natural playing position.
The matte finish ABS body on the YCL-221 provides a better appearance by showing fewer handling marks, warmer sound, excellent response, and a lighter weight than a grenadilla wood body. The position of the register tonehole is scientifically designed for extremely accurate intonation and the easy-to-assemble joint system and rounded key connector make this an ideal instrument for students. The smaller-sized case design makes it easy to carry the clarinet back and forth to school, and requires less storage space.
The YCL-221 adds many new features to improve comfort while playing, reducing the risk of future problems associated with bad posture during rehearsals,” stated Kurt Witt, Wind Instrument product manager.
