The CX is the first of the Yamaha Custom range, all of which are hand finished and crafted in Japan. This is the latest Bb model, released in 2022 that features a range of improvements including leather pads, a new thumbrest design, a modified low C/F left hand key mechanism and extended E/B levers and C#/G# keys. These technical changes make the instrument more comfortable to hold and play. Yamaha have also introduced a new surface polishing technique using a natural oil (that contains no additives) which help fully retain the natural tonal qualities of the wood.
The new CX design offers a full round sound with an immediate clarity to the tone. It has tapered toneholes and a silver-plated bell ring, which contribute to the presence and openness of its tone, ideal for the player specialising in solo or band playing.
The Custom CX offers the professional clarinettist a darker more powerful sound giving the player more versatility. Being the first in the range of custom series clarinets it has all of the benefits of a handcrafted clarinet at a very competitive price.

Very relaxed atmosphere - I loved the experience
Lovely tone and easy to play
Have only had the clarinet a week but very much superior to my old one ,will take a bit of time getting used to it but the sound is way better and a lot more free blowing.
It took me a few days to get used to the instrument but once I got used to the different tone and play of the instrument, I’m very pleased with the purchase. I am finding the short initial playing frustrating but understand why it’s done that way but realise that it’s also making me take my time to get to know the instrument.
