While retaining the traditional wide tone holes, tapers, and undercuts of the SE Series, the SEVR Custom Clarinet offers rich tone and even greater freedom of expression. It not only blends beautifully in ensembles, but is a standout choice for solos as well.
Refined for Freedom of Expression
The SEVR/SEVR-A clarinet has been carefully refined to give players unrivalled freedom of expression. A number significant changes have been made to the instrument’s design allowing Yamaha to deliver a clarinet that meets clarinetists’ desires for a higher standard of clarinet. Its beautiful tone, rich expressive capabilities throughout the dynamic range, and a tone with exceptional presence, Yamaha’s new SEVR/SEVR-A sets new standards in professional clarinet craftsmanship.
Thick Key Plating
A thick key plating means that SEVR/SEVR-A has rich expressive capabilities, particularly when played loudly.
Durable Leather Pads
Durable leather pads are used for their Rich tonal quality with the additional benefit of giving players a buzz-free playing experience.
65 mm Traditional Barrel Shape
The traditional barrel shape of the SEVR/SEVR-A enhances the playing experience giving players a well-balanced response, and perfect resistance. The elegant new ‘R’ logo on the barrel emphasises this beautifully refined instrument.
New Ergonomic Design C#/G# Key
Attention to detail was paramount when re-designing the SEV and by making the C#/G# key 2mm longer, the touch and playability have been greatly improved.
Traditional Bell Shape
The traditional bell shape without scallop chamber achieves tone with superb presence and a focused core.
Adjustable Thumb-Rest with Strap Ring
The adjustable thumb rest allows players to find the most comfortable setting. The addition of a strap ring gives players the option to distribute the weight of the instrument and relieve some of the strain of holding the instrument.
