*Here’s something I discovered: we call them “Yani’s” but they’re actually spelled “Yanagisawa”. I thought this was a fake when I took a second to read the name on the sax.
Bell dent removal. Apparently this horn hit the ground hard enough to put a dent and then the customers teacher bent it out of the lip leaving some plier marks. I am not sure what it looked like after the initial hit, but my assumption is it would be better to have left it alone. The dents came out well with my bell lip form tool and it is nearly perfect again.
Before and after first working of bell.
