Each January we send a group to the NAMM (National Association of Music Merchants) show. This is a great opportunity for us to see new products and come up with new programs to help us better serve you.
This week, we wanted to focus on a new product that is really exciting for the clarinet world. Yamaha has developed a new professional clarinet, the CSVR. Yamaha has been a leader in the band and orchestra market for a long time, and they take, in many cases, years to develop, test, and release a new product. Below we have listed some of the key features and benefits and what they mean to the player.
- It has redesigned keys that offer a comfortable and ergonomic hand placement making it easier for the player to play it longer without fatigue. The new keys also have thicker silver-plating which will make it sound darker and more resonant.
- It also had a durable leather pad that will ensure a precise seal between pad and the tone hole. This makes it easier for a player to get a consistent sound out of the instrument with a lighter touch enabling more difficult passages to be played more quickly and with less effort.
- The CSVR also comes with a new Custom barrel design. It causes the clarinet to have a well-balanced response and a rich, warm tone that will help elevate the progressing clarinetist’s playing.
