    5Beautiful sound!
    By Rosie Gross
    My child borrowed a Mark II from her school for 2 years. This Yamaha 255 Bb clarinet has a much, much better sound. I am not musically trained at all, but even I notice a significant difference. My child loves this Yamaha, and I foresee having it for a long time.

    You get world-renowned Yamaha quality for a fraction of the price. The look and feel of this clarinet indicates that it should have cost much more.
