in a reasonable condition, it needs cleaning and service

Country of Origin: Germany
Condition: Used
Brand: Hammerschmidt
Type: B♭clarinet

This Clarinet is made by "Karl Hammerschmidt und Sohns", Burgau, Schwaben, Germany. Year of make unclear. Made of wood.
I got this Clarinet in the 1980s, from an auction. I'm not sure it is a B-clarinet.
The 5 parts fit a bit loose, and are not tight enough now to play the instrument right away. The instrument needs a good cleaning and service. The ligature is partly broken, the metal around one screw, see picture. Of course, the old reed (vandoren, paris) needs to be replaced.
The several parts have no cracks or other damage. Total length is 67cm.
The leather of the handle of the case is broken at one end. The case is made of wood frame, covered faux-leather carton and has a plate with "Melchior de Vries - Lier - Belgique - producer of musical instruments".

Will be sent fully insured.
