For sale is a semi-pro Yamaha YCL-52 Bb Clarinet in nice condition with all new pads! This instrument is difficult to find for sale because they are such high quality instruments. Easily beating out the intermediate level YCL-34 and YCL-450 in terms of response and tuning. This absolutely fabulous clarinet is one of the best money can buy without going with a fully priced professional model. 52s are difficult to come by because they are only rarely sold by their owners. I can see why. This instrument is an excellent player, It is made from a high-quality wood that responds well and is easy to learn on. This particular instrument is in good condition. There are scratches on instrument body from normal use, but the logos are visible in the right light. The silver plating on the instrument is stunning, but has wear marks from use and some stubborn tarnish in places.. The case is a high quality hard case that is very sturdy and compact. There is a chip in the lower tenon, but it doesn’t affect the playability of the instrument. In addition to the Instrument and case, you will receive a mouthpiece, ligature, swab, cork grease, and a new Vandoren reed: everything you need to get started and take good care of your new instrument for years to come.
