For the YCL-CSGII/YCL-CSG-AII, Yamaha reanalyzed and reevaluated literally every single design specification until they had created an instrument that harks back to the tonal purity and natural resonance of aged grenadilla wood.
There's less metal used on the YCL-CSGll, so the whole body reverberates with sound, while the new bore, barrel, and bell shapes offer a tone of breathtaking richness and depth. The sound is warm yet has a clear focused center surrounded by a wealth of overtones, resulting in extraordinary beauty and expressivity.
Please refer to table below for model specs
Improved key shape with Yamaha original silver-plating
Ergonomically-designed new key shape offers comfortable and natural key touch. Yamaha-original silver-plating is applied on them, allowing a focused and centered sound.
Two barrels with different lengths
YCL-CSGll/YCL-CSG-AII comes with two barrel variations with different lengths (54.00mm/55.00mm) to provide players with a range of barrels from which to choose.
New Eb lever
A newly shaped Eb lever is adopted as a standard, along which the entire mechanism is totally re-designed as well.
A strategic combination of cork, synthetic, and leather pads optimize and balance tone and response.
New toneholes maximize superior tone quality, even intonation and a uniformed response throughout the full range of the instrument.
