A twin of the Yamaha 450, this used Yamaha Advantage 400AD clarinet is a
great-sounding instrument with a comfortable feel. All of the tenon
corks, except for the one on the mouthpiece, are new, and pads and
springs have been replaced where needed. There are no cracks or repaired
cracks in the wood body, and the tenons are in good shape. Although
there is light plating wear, with a few scratches and cloudy areas on
the keys, they retain a nice appearance overall. As can be seen, the
logo is faded on the top joint, but bright and clear on the bell.
Growing hands will appreciate the adjustable thumb rest. The mouthpiece,
with an inverted leather ligature, has scratches and discoloration on
the back; however, it is in excellent playing condition. It comes in an
impact resistant Yamaha case that has scuff marks on the outside, and a
little wear and cork grease spotting in the plush interior. Included are
a reed guard, cork grease and new swab.
