Tell stories of your first dent or other major dents. Mine happened today After 7 years of playing. Yes, I had my minor dents, but none of them I deemed serious enough to repair on my student Jupiter horn. However, today, I was holding my trumpet walking over to my music, and I slipped (socks on a hardwood floor). Everything went into slow motion and I tried to save my trumpet, but unfortunately I couldn't save it. Now my Getzen 700 bell is essentially a semi-circle. Oh yea, and my arm is all bloodied up from when I fell. Oh yea, and then how much do these repairs cost? And should I trust my local repairman? Tell stories about your first/major dents.
