Beautiful semi-pro instrument for a reasonable price

VMate, 26.07.2018
I played the clarinet for 8 years before university. The instrument I used was rented from the music school, I myself never owned a clarinet. 15 years later I wanted to play again so I started a research about intermediate level wooden instruments. After narrowing down the choices I needed to decide between a Buffet Crampon E13, Yamaha YCL 450 and Yamaha YCL 650. I managed to try them out in few different local shops (much more expensive than Thomann), and found that even the model YCL 450 had better build quality than a Buffet (on which the ring on the bell could freely rotate for instance). Between YCL 450 and 650 I decided to go for the latter, as it sounded more rounder and sophisticated.
The whole instrument is solid yet light, made of beautiful grenadilla wood (with some nice dark grain), the keywork is perfect. I highly recommend this product for intermediate players who would like to play on a quality instrument. The compact packaging and box is also a pro.

Mixed feelings

gramofan, 11.12.2016
Has called this instrument for me:
Sometimes they are the little things that make you feel unhappy. At the price you expect an instrument that is perfect in every respect. Unfortunately, here is no ring for hooking a strap, I need with such a heavy instrument but absolutely and a Fummellösung with leather strips, which one pushes over the dauemnhalter little satisfied. The flap for the h 'closed on delivery not properly and had to be directed only by Thomann (which happened quickly and uncomplicated). This is not expected at the price, as well as the circumstance that the fitting for the thumb holder was clearly misaligned (which is not correct, because the wrong holes remain). At the price unacceptable. The case is indeed beautiful, but due to its unusual shape it can not be placed on a flat surface, but wobbles and is therefore not suitable for practical use (especially since Yamaha has saved the hinges at the hinge side.) Here the reference material, The one who takes over the task somehow tear). The supplied mouthpiece (Yamaha 4C) is inadequate for an instrument of this price class and should be replaced by something more high-quality, otherwise the instrument is also hardly distinguishable from the YCL 255.
The real advantage is the look: with the natural wood surface and the silver-plated fittings, the instrument makes something, especially when it is in its open box - but I did not want a display case but something to play.
Conclusion: a wrong investment, which can be corrected by Thomann money back guarantee.
