    So I recently purchased a jupiter Xo 1602s trumpet and I noticed a dent only about a month in...I am in a marching band and there are very rough environments for an instrument, so I started using my old one. Getting to the point both my trumpets have a dent under the first valve slide and its pretty big on both of them, is was it made like this? I have seen a show that said that I just could not word this problem

    I've heard of intentional dents in some natural and keyed trumpets (Help me out here Barliman) but not in standard Bb

    Nicely dented 'singing bell' from Brassego/Austria. You can even sent your horn for denting (up to € 650.-)

    Veredelung - brassego.at

    Seems to play great.

    School trumpets commonly have dents where the horn and chair that it is often laid on meet (bell). In addition there is often a dent on the second valve slide bow from laying the trumpet down on the wrong side.

    I would look for something like this. Trumpets should be in your hand making music, or in the case. Trumpet stands and chairs are bad for trumpets!

    I never lay it down like that, my school is very picky about where we put our instruments even if its owned by yourself. Thanks for the help though.
