YCLCSVR

Online

The CSVR clarinet has been carefully refined to give players unrivalled freedom of expression. A number of significant changes have been made to the instrument's design allowing Yamaha to deliver a clarinet that meets clarinetists desires for a higher standard of clarinet. With its beautiful tone, rich expressive capabilities throughout the dynamic range, and a tone with exceptional presence, Yamaha's new CSVR sets new standards in professional clarinet craftsmanship.

Custom Series Clarinet, Available in two keys: Bb and A, 65 mm barrel, Grenadilla body, Silver-plated keys, Silver-plated ligature and mouthpiece cap.

Features:

• Thick Key Plating, which means that the CSVR has rich expressive capabilities, particularly when played loudly.

• Durable Leather Pads are used for their rich tonal quality with the additional benefit of giving players a buzz-free playing experience.

• 65 mm Traditional Barrel Shape enhances the playing experience giving players a well-balanced response, and perfect resistance. The elegant new R logo on the barrel emphasises this beautifully refined instrument.

• New Ergonomic Design C#/G# Key - Attention to detail was paramount when re-designing the CSV and by making the C#/G# key 2mm longer, the touch and playability have been greatly improved.

• Traditional Bell Shape without scallop chamber achieves tone with superb presence and a focused core.

• Adjustable Thumb-Rest with Strap Ring allows players to find the most comfortable setting. The addition of a strap ring gives players the option to distribute the weight of the instrument and relieve some of the strain of holding the instrument.

They really got it right with this one, folks! Please understand first of all, that the Buffet R-13 will always deserve its reputation as a fabulous instrument used by the great majority of pro players the world over. That said, the reson for my rave is that this horn has a much "fatter" sound than the R13, which has a more 'traditional' sound. The CSVR could be used equally well for jazz or classical, if youre looking for one clarinet to fil both uses. it has great carrying power. I personally like to use the Vandoren Profile 88 M13 mouthpiece with Vandoren V12 or Rue Lepic "56" reeds to get that "fat" sound. NOTE; You can also use the Custon Yamaha mouthpieces, models YCL4CM and YCL5CM and get equally satisfactory results. They are somewhat cheaper than Vandoren mouthpieces, and th 4CM comes with this clarinet. This mouthpiece is also an excellent choice when graduating from any student level mouthpiece.
