An outstanding student/improver's clarinet (and used by several pro' friends of mine as a highly reliable back up instrument). A favourite of Stephen Howard and highly reviewed and recommended on his website. Recently checked over by Griff and fitted with several new pads. Plays extremely well, as you would expect from a Yamaha. Comes complete with a new gig case and a 6C mouthpiece, and a new Ton Kooman Etude thumb rest, which makes it very comfortable to play. Priced at £230, usual 5% to the charity, and postage around £17.50. P1010957_edited-1.jpg

I live in Exmouth Devon.

Having recently given this clarinet a thorough checkover, I can confirm that this is a great clarinet in real good nick.
I am in now way connected to Paul - apart from him being a good customer of mine.

Ton Kooiman lives next door (no kidding!).

That YCL-250 sounds very tempting ... would £17,50 also cover shipping to the Netherlands?

Then you would probably know what a lovely thumb rest he makes. I imagine that the postage wood be about right, as long as you wouldn't might sending a bit extra if it's wildly wrong; I don't mind too much over a few quid. It's a really good buy.Have you read Steve Howard's review?
Buy the way, to whomever is interested, I am away for eight days from tomorrow.

He does indeed, though I was always happy with the regular Buffet Crampon thumbrest and a piece of cork. The great thing about the Kooiman thumb rest is how it spreads the pressure, and how easily you can adjust it.

To be fair, Ton Kooiman does not live exactly next door; it is a 10 minute walk from my house ;)

Regarding the Yamaha; I found a very nice Buffet Crampon from the early 70's, so I satisfied my clarinet appetite for now ;)

Just been reminded that this very nice instrument is still languishing, so I will reduce the price to £200 in the hope of finding a new owner.

Yes, Jeanette. It is actually in my local music shop, but I can get it back tomorrow if you would like it.
An excellent clarinet, by the way…..but I'm sure you already know that.
Paul.

O.K…….How about £175? Other possibility is a swap for a decent flute. (contribution to fund still applies, of course)

Hi Jx,
Yes, this clarinet is still for sale and I have decided to reduce the price to £200 which must be a bargain! However, I have removed the Ton Kooman thumb rest and restored the original Yamaha one.
