The Yamaha CSVR clarinets are the result of years of development dedicated to a clearly focused concept: crafting a Custom clarinet that has a beautiful sound, consistent quality, and an affordable price. Both student and professional clarinetists require a rich sound and comfortable playability. These qualities were combined with the high level of consistency that only Yamaha can provide, allowing clarinetists to demand a higher standard than ever before! The Custom CSVR clarinets were specifically designed with the input of professional clarinet educators. Product evaluations were held in major cities across the country, including New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Antonio and Boston. Time and time again, the Custom CSVR clarinets proved to meet and even exceed evaluators' expectations for tone, response and intonation. Combined with Yamaha's high standards for quality and consistency, these new CSVR clarinets are exceptional instruments, ideal for clarinet students and also professional performers and educators.
- Refined for Freedom of Expression. The CSVR clarinet has been carefully ‘r’efined to give players unrivalled freedom of expression.

With its beautiful tone, rich expressive qualities throughout the dynamic range, and exceptional presence, the CSVR sets new standards in professional clarinet craftsmanship.
