Repair Services – Reshape Crinkled Trumpet or Cornet Bell 2014 $65.00 plus $30 Shipping

Just $65.00 during 2014. Local Customers call 513-755-8695.

Roll out crinkled bell for just $55.00 plus $30.00 shipping. Crone Trumpet has invested in a Dent Machine and all the special rollers so that we can do a professional job on straightening a crinkled or damage trumpet bell.

Unless the bell is severely crinkled it can usually be straightened to its original shape without leaving any marks on the lacquer or silver finish. Our NAPBIRT trained repairman has attended NAPBIRT classes and seminars that included Dent Machine use and special trumpet repair techniques.

In addition, Ralph has attended a Dent Machine Seminar at the Ferree’s Tool plant in Battle Creek, Michigan and another at NAPBIRT in Normal,Illinois.

Since the Dent Machine uses polished rollers with adjustable pressure, it eliminates the need ro use dent hammers and burnishers so the finish is usually unmarked by the process. However, the lacquer or silver finished is often marked by the dent itself but the lubricated rollers will not add to this damage like a dent hammer or burnisher might.
