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!

  6. Brass Mouthpiece Shank Tool
    Brass Mouthpiece Shank Tool Our Brass Mouthpiece Shank Tool allows you to true up the shank of any size brass mouthpiece easily. This is a traditional tool in the band repair industry and has been used by technicians and band teachers for many years. Normally this tool comes with a T-handle and can be forced into the shank of the mouthpiece, causing damage to the mouthpiece shank by unskilled users. We removed the T from our tool and replaced it with a handy key chain! This keeps unskilled users from shoving the mandrel into the mouthpiece shank and over expanding it. The safest method of restoring your mouthpiece shank to true round is to insert the tool into the shank, and tap with a rawhide mallet to bring it back to round. This method will prevent damage to the mouthpiece and keep it playing great! Made of stainless steel at our facility in Wilmington, NC USA. Learn More
