Quick Overview


Anyone who has done dent removal on saxophone necks or slide crooks knows there is no single tool to cover all situations. The numerous combinations of tubing diameter, taper, curve, dent location and depth are practically unlimited and even the most well equipped shops will often wish they had a slightly different size or shape of dent ball or dent rod.

Our FLAT SIDE DENT BALLS offer a new unique shape designed to help expand the technician's arsenal of dent tools. As shown in the illustration below this shape provides the same radius as a similarly sized standard dent ball but with the 'front' and 'back' of the ball removed. This feature allows the position of the working surface of the dent ball (the center of the arc) to change in relation to the dent rod, allowing access to a greater number of areas than what just a standard dent ball will offer.

The narrow profile makes our flat side dent balls especially effective for raking or pushing up dents. And the slightly radiused edge is a real aid for focusing in on sharp dents.

Precision machined and finished using corrosion resistant magnetic 416 stainless steel. This type of stainless steel allows use of a magnet to assist in locating the dent ball which on heavy walled saxophone or clarinet necks can be difficult. Included with the set of balls is a strong rare earth nickel plated magnet that can be placed on the outside of the neck and work as a good visual for knowing exactly where the dent ball is while raking out a dent.

Set includes 18 flat side dent balls, 1 rare earth magnet, and storage rack with cover. Designed for use on all saxophone necks, alto & bass clarinet necks, and large bore brass instrument slide crooks.
