We can remove dents from any part of your instrument. While most of this work is performed using traditional tools and techniques (rods, balls, mandrels, burnishers, cables, etc.), we also have magnetic dent equipment. For certain types of dents, this can mean less effort and a quicker, less expensive repair, especially with sax bows and low brass instruments.
