Throw your clarinet away and get a proper one. If you dont know how to look after it you dont deserve one.

Gosh! Buffet is usually pretty good. I have never heard of that happening before... although I'm sure it has. Are you thinking of taking it to a music store?

Your problem is due to shrinkage of the barrel due to changes in temperature and humidity. The instrument should be protected from these by temperature and humidity control. Do not try to glue the rings back on......they will return to their original condition as the climate changes. Log on to the "clarinet bboard" for professional advice on this subject. Let me know if you continue to have concerns.

don't worry! I play a buffet R13 and one of my rings usually gets loose during the winter time due to the weather. It just depends on the temperature and climate you live in. It'll go back to normal once the weather changes.

You can put paper under the ring to hold it in place.
