The Custom CSVR clarinets were specifically designed with the input of professional clarinet educators. This led to a complete revitalization of Yamaha clarinets seen with the SEVR, CSGIII, and now the CSVR-ASP clarinets. The Atelier Special clarinet gives players an exacting level of consistency and quality for the most nuance control and performance, with a darker and more projecting tone than that of the original CSVR.
CSVR-ASP models feature a metal tenon ring for improved definition and projection. The newly redesigned linkage system for the Eb lever allows for a smoother key action and comfortable playing experience. The A and Register keys have adopted a more ergonomically engineered shape that offers a more natural, comfortable playing feel. Two barrels of different length, 65mm and 66mm are supplied. The player can choose the barrel that is best suited to the pitch of the performance.
