Selmer Bundy metal clarinet on ebay, seller claims silver, it isn´t!

Hello, i bought a clarinet (in an auction off) of ebay. The seller claimed it to be silver. Silly of me I should have thought about that silver seldom leaves red rot or "rusts".
But what to do?
Me, in northern Europe (Sweden) and the seller in the USA, sets shipping costs to USD $ 54 oversea. I have already started to work on the horn. Havn´t yet contacted the seller and already given positive feedback. :crybaby:

Any good advice anybody?

Beg your pardon for posting here but the ebay thread isclosed. I guess quite a few viewers here seems to have an experience of ebay.

Most metal clarinets are less than desirable, some are real gems. Other than the word "silver" in the auction's title, I didn't see anything in the text that was deceiving. I suppose one could claim it was "semantics" and what he meant to write was silver colored . . .

Looks to me like you are stuck with it and maybe should chalk it up to a lesson learned.

But the OTHER question is, how does it play? It was obviously in need of work when you bid on it, so I assume you had plans to overhaul it. Maybe you should do that . . . silver or not, it may turn into a player. DAVE
