 Re: Yamaha YCL200 vs YCL250

Alpha plays pretty well ... Ridenour Lyrique RCP-576 has improved fit and finish on his clarinets in recent years ... it might be a draw between the two on quality.

The Alpha is lighter in weight, lighter in it's sound (not as warm and robust), less blowing resistance and has fairly good tuning. The Alpha feels different under the fingers ... it vibrates (like you would expect of plastic). Ridenour Lyrique RCP-576 and Alpha are very different.

With the Ridenour, you will be playing an instrument that many advanced players and professional use. And, it is designed by one of the best designers on the planet, who also designed the professional clarinets produced by Leblanc back in the 1990s. The Leblanc Opus and Concerto was gaining market share over Buffet at the time ...

Hey, save your pennies and get one of each! It's all fun!
