So it's settled, the clarinet is going back! I'll loose 50€ in process, as he requires them for his "expenses" (Nevermind me removing all keys, cleaning + polishing them and oiling the wood) but that's OK I guess, because I'm totally sure this "erosion" affects the upper joint and there are serious, yet subtle differences in intonation of the upper joint relative to the lower joint that I could only notice using a tuner while playing certain intervals. It seems like I unconsciously lipped some tones up or down during rehearsal, which fixed some issues, but produced others. Generally, any changes from the clarion to some throat notes are far off and there was no way to correct that quickly enough when playing faster passages, for me at least.

No such issues with my RC.

Long story short: Don't buy horns that just feel too used and listen to your gut feeling. Despite what the seller claimed, I'm 90% sure about this Superior having serious issues, so I'm rehabilitating my RC.

I've attached 2 other horror images... ;) Yeah, don't even ask about the tarnished spots, I was not going to use a polishing machine on a horn I just bought. And I don't know what kind of tool leaves these marks in the touchpieces of the C/F + Eb/G# key.
