Yamaha is always open to feedback from artists and players.

At the same time, we continue to carry out basic research into materials, acoustics, manufacturing technology, quality control, and other related fields.

We are continuing to create musical instruments that are friendly to the environment and society so that we can continue to share passion and performance to as many people as possible in the future.

All preconceptions were discarded, and a large amount of time was devoted to basic research that began with a fundamental question: What is an ideal clarinet.

The results of that essential work were actualized in fine detail by master craftsman and refined through extensive artist evaluations.

This exhaustive process led to the birth of the unique CS and SE series clarinets.

Two Unique Custom Clarinet Series: CS & SE

CS Series

Tone: A solid tonal core and excellent definition that are well suited to solo playing. Also a strong choice for orchestral use.

Playing feel: The player can blow freely and let the instrument take care of outstanding tone production and extended projection.

The instrument responds directly to the player’s breath volume.

SE Series

Tone: A rich and luxurious tone that envelopes the listener. An excellent choice for ensembles.

Playing feel: A gently flared bore produces tone that expands radially from the player.

Expressive range is broad, allowing the player to produce ideal tone in any musical situation without wasted breath.
