The Yamaha V-Series Clarinets are the result of years of development dedicated to a clearly focused concept: Crafting Custom clarinets that have a beautiful sound, consistent
quality and an affordable price. Both student and professional clarinetists require a rich sound and comfortable playability. These qualities were combined with the high level of
consistency that only Yamaha can provide, allowing clarinetists to demand an even higher standard than ever before. Redesigned keys offer comfortable, ergonomic hand
placement. In addition, the new keys have thicker silver-plating for a dark and resonant sound quality. Durable leather pads ensure a precise seal between pad and tone hole for
ease of response throughout the entire range of the clarinet. Two different bore taper options pair to offer players with choices to find the optimal combination of response and
tone for their own playing style. A new custom barrel design provides a well-balanced response and rich, warm tonal colors that will elevate the progressing clarinetist’s playing.
