    Okay, Tobylou8.... Are those laughing faces bait for Kingtrumpets rofls? Say it ain't so.....

    dBeav, I think I would start horn repair with a less ambitious project. Small steps, Grasshopper.

    I think the case is worth more than the horn.

    I'd say that one is a candidate for scrap. A little bit past saving:roll::dontknow::oops:

    The finger hook appears to be in OK shape.

    All kidding aside, a good repair tech could perform miracles if needed. A fellow that plays in our swing band was a repair tech in the navy years ago and he showed me a picture of a Mark IV tenor that got run over by I think a deuce and a half. Probably wasn't quite as flat as this trumpet but they repaired it and from the pictures it looked like a new horn. Probably worth the effort too.
