Yamaha YCL-CXA-03 Clarinet Custom Model

The Traditional Design With A Well-Defined Tone

This model has a well-defined tone. Breath flow is smooth with highly regarded tone, articulation, and pitch that blend easily in ensembles.

What is "CX"

CX comes from "Chalumeaux", a historical musical instrument that is considered to be the origin of the clarinet.

The CX design pays homage to this tradition.


Warm tone for outstanding projection

Leather pads are chosen after extensive testing with emphasis on sound quality.

These pads afford smooth breath flow and stress-free playing while making it easier to produce beautiful, warm tones.

Because the surfaces of the pads do not vibrate when the instrument is played, no spurious pad noise occurs.

Thanks to a good seal, breath flows directly toward the bell for outstanding projection.

Deliver the sound consistently over a distance

Special selected material* is used on the barrel that greatly affects the sound.

*Natural granadilla is selected according to specified standards to ensure the highest possible quality and tone with minimal variation.

The instrument surface is polished with a natural oil that contains no additives, fully retaining the natural tonal qualities of the wood.

Reduce thumb discomfort and fatigue

This model features an adjustable thumb rest with strap ring.

The thumb rest can be set to a height that is most comfortable for individual players.

It can be set to make fingering comfortable for players with small hands and can be readjusted as necessary as the player grows and becomes more proficient.

The thumb rest also includes a ring that can provide a convenient location for strap attachment when needed.

Key returns more precisely, making left-hand operation easier

The mechanism with an adjustment screw alleviates problems that would sometimes occur because of the mechanism’s small range of motion.

The key returns more precisely without wobble, making left-hand operation easier. This also improves the mechanism’s playing feel.

Friction is lower, so there is less need for maintenance. Optimum playing action is maintained for longer.

Prevent fingering mistakes

Longer E/B levers and C#/G# keys are featured.

This design reduces the likelihood of fingers slipping off the keys while playing, preventing fingering mistakes.
