    Ok I recently Had a BERP on my trumpet the thingy that you buzz into that attaches to the lead pipe, and when I took it off I noticed some small scratches left from it that my silver polishing cloth couldnt get out. Are people at repair shops and such able to get these scratches out. Also I have a little ding at the top of my bell I want to get out.

    Is it possable to get these out and like how much would it cost? Im guessing like $50 maby er somthing?

    if the silver plate is deeply scratched, then you need to have that part buffed and replated if a perfect finish is you main worry. Whether dings can be removed easily depends on where they are and if the metal has a crease. Only the shop can tell you. We all live in different places and get charged different rates.
