For sale is a Yamaha XT-1 Professional Wood Clarinet in a vibrant blue protec case. This instrument was a custom production for a large music store in Texas several years ago and was based off of the YCL-650 in construction and overall quality. This is a fabulous instrument that is well worth the search to find. This rare professional clarinet carries with it high quality Yamaha production, an excellent tone, and ease of play that even Buffet players would be jealous of. This instrument is difficult to find for sale because they are high quality instruments, had a low production number, and are only rarely sold by their owners. Yamaha is known for making excellent and consistent instruments, and this instrument is no different. It is a wonderful instrument that is of true professional quality, and is at a better price point to the more common R13.
