A good tool

Helmut926, 06.04.2010
I now play the 650e about a three-quarter year. I am still very satisfied with her.

The most important advantages are in my opinion:

- clean intonation over all registers (even at depth f and e still almost exactly)
- very easy response of the short notes
- the flaps lie exactly where the fingers want to go automatically
- high quality
- very chic by the unpicked wood and the silver-plated mechanism
- it has the second es-lifter which is important to me

The disadvantage was that I first had to reduce the thickness of the cork under the cis / gis lever and under the connecting lever between the lower part and the upper part, because the corresponding sounds rushed slightly because of too small a gap between the pads and the sound holes. One, two screws / axles could also tolerate a slight tightening. Actually small things, but that could fit also from the factory. For this, the adjustment of the spring tension was perfect, which gives a very even impression when playing the instrument. Also the cushions were very well set and tight from the beginning.

The tones e and f in the lower register do not sound as full as you would normally be used to, because of the intonatory adjustment of the mug, but now I think that this should not be a disadvantage, Taste ". Clearly positive, on the other hand, is the coherent sound impression of the registers, which allows a homogeneous sound over the entire bandwidth. From the beginning I had the impression that the Yamaha, in contrast to the previous clarinet, makes what is demanded by it and remains relatively neutral.

The supplied mouthpiece, on the other hand, is not satisfactory from the sound. I think for the class that the 650 represents, you could offer something better. But who has been playing with an original mouthpiece for a long time, most clarinetists will change their mouths after a short time.

All in all, the above-mentioned advantages clearly prevail. It is a superbly processed, well-sounding clarinet with clean intonation at a fair price. Visually, the 650 is very successful. It is a real piece of jewelery due to its fine wood and pleasing mechanics.

I would recommend them well into the advanced range. In contrast to the slightly more favorable 450, which can only be obtained without the second es-jack, it also offers the advantage of undercut conical tone-holes.

A wonderful instrument!

haasy25, 15.06.2018
Although with brass player I am but a clarinet newcomer. With the Yamaha YCL-650-E, I even quickly managed to create passable sounds in self-study and, after less than half a year, played in the orchestra. The instrument is great to play and makes a great sound. I am still excited.
