Dent Removal Tools

Why stainless steel?

We chose to make this tool from stainless steel.  We know we’re spending our customers’ money, because that means that the tool price is higher.  Stainless steel costs more to buy and more to machine, and it’s harder to machine. So, why do it?  

We’re creating more and more tools that we hope will last a lifetime, and we think that’s worth a little more cost upfront.  Stainless steel is harder and stronger, and it’s much longer lasting because it isn’t susceptible to corrosion. 

At the Sax ProShop, I didn’t want my customers to see rusty tools in the shop, and I’m sure every other technician and shop owner can relate!  But regular steel tools rust quickly due to chemicals used in the industry, like vaporized flux, and it requires technicians to spend a lot of time polishing tools and coating them with oil, instead of doing what they do best. 

Stainless steel is also great because it’s non-magnetic.  Our tools won’t collect fillings and shavings, and that means you don’t have to worry about damaging brass with metal debris while you’re doing dent work.

Lastly, out of pride, I don't want to have the MusicMedic name on some rusty tool.  I want tools with my company’s name on it to be the best, to shine bright, so we make tools out of stainless even though we must sell them at a lower profit margin.

Thanks for choosing stainless steel and MusicMedic!

Just received my dent rod and oblong slotted dent ball. Never used one before. I thought it through, worked carefully and took my time. Removed a thumbprint size dent that was below the thumb rest on a 1946 Conn 6M. It turned out great. The thumb rest was pushed in a little too. Fixed that also. Wow, it turned out great. 
Thank you!

  10. Flute Stabilizer
    $27.00

    It is a real challenge to polish, or rag, a flute body on a mandrel because the flute slides and spins around. Our repair department created the Flute Stabilizer for use with our whole line of flute body mandrels to hold the flute in place to make it easy to polish and perform other tasks which require the flute to be stationary.

    The Flute Stabilizer threads on to the end of the mandrel and can be left in place during most uses of the mandrel. Use the included hex key wrench to tighten the end, which expands a rubber gasket to make steady contact with the inside of the flute body, holding it in place. The gasket will only expand to a certain point, which eliminates the risk of over-expanding and causing damage to the flute. 

    For use with our Economy, Professional, and Alto Flute Body Mandrels

  13. Flute Dent Barrels

    Starting at: $20.00

    An accessory that pairs with the Flute Body Mandrel, you’ll love how fast, safe, and easy it is to remove dents with a barrel shape.  The Stainless Steel Flute Dent Barrel threads onto the end of the mandrel, and the result is a strong radius for removing dents on a rigid body mandrel.  You can apply extra pressure for serious dents with supreme control because you won’t be battling a flexible rod, which can bounce and give.  On an extremely damaged flute, use the dent barrel to make way for the body mandrel to go through the body.  It also works great for pushing up low spots on tone holes.

  19. Sax Body Slam Tool
    $54.95

    Our saxophone body straightening tool was designed at the body work station in our shop. We designed the plugs for this tool to have a gentle taper which will contact the receiver on the body at more than one point. This helps hold the tool securely in the receiver. The center plate has been cut out to reduce the weight of the tool. The radius on the "I" shaped center plate distributes the force of the blow evenly. This allows the technician a little bit of leeway when tapping the horn against the bench. If you miss you still transfer the same amount of force as if you had hit the tool squarely on the bench. The Sax Body Slam tool plugs will fit in most makes of alto and tenor saxophones. If you need a custom-made plug for a larger or smaller tenon please email us. Learn More
