Quick Overview


Our #2680 Small Dent Rod and Ball Set is one of those everyday workhorse tools designed for use in practically any shop. Ideal for all trumpet, cornet, and trombone bell pipes, as well as a whole variety of other applications that call for a small diameter rod and ball. Machined from non corrosive stainless steel, the set includes two rods and six dent ball heads with storage tray.

The larger rod has an overall length of 30" (76cm) and is tapered from 0.625" (15.9mm) diameter down to 0.375" (9.5mm). The tapered end is threaded 1/4-28 to accept any of the six dent ball heads. The rod's other end is threaded 3/8-16.

This rod is perfect for raking and pushing up dents along the entire length of a trumpet or cornet bell pipes. The commonly dented area of the bell pipe between the mouthpiece receiver brace and the beginning of the downward bend of the crook has always been a hard area to work without resorting to dent balls. Using the larger rod with the smallest diameter dent ball head allows the technician easy access to rake and push up dents throughout this area. The rod's 30" length also allows access along the full length of trombone bell pipes.

The smaller rod has an overall length of 18" (46cm) with a diameter of 0.375" (9.5mm). One end is threaded 1/4-28 and the other end is threaded 3/8-16. Works great for a variety of dent repairs such as slide pipes in larger brass instruments, sax necks, tuning slides, etc.

The six dent ball heads are precison machined and polished from non-corrosive stainless steel and are designed with a 1/4-28 thread size. The smooth polished finish lends itself very well for raking and pushing up dents.
