Dent removal in the north west

Hi, over the weekend I managed to do something royally stupid and picked up my sax case without clipping it closed, this led to a small dint with a nasty scratch across it on the bell of my sax (A Yani A911)

I'm not overly concerned about scuffs and wear but the dent does annoy me a little.

I'm thinking of getting a tech to take a look at it but unsure who to use.

I used Eddie Ashton of woodwindco once before for a small key adjustment which he kindly did for free, and have been given the name of Alan McGinity based on Wirral.

I live in Liverpool and work on Wirral so Alan would be more convenient in terms of location, just wondering if anyone can recommend either of them based on experience or recommend someone else?

Thanks

Welcome to the caffé jaz.
What about introducing yourself in the doorbell section?

About royal stupidity, you are not alone. When it happened to me, I ended up at 6am waiting for my repairer to open, with a banana-shaped MkVI tenor in the case.

You can always keep the dent as a reminder, or make up a story like "when Cab Calloway shot, Dizzy was holding this very horn for a friend, and it saved his life stopping the bullet"

Alan should be able to sort it out, I've heard nothing but praise for his work from my friends in Liverpool

Off topic but the phrase " dent removal in the north east" is a corker... maybe an album title or some sort of track by The Fall!..

Hi again, I introduced myself in the doorbell section and I'll keep the name of the thread in the bank in case I ever release an album :D

Thanks for the advice/feedback, on second inspection maybe I'll leave it as a war wound. I did however notice that the key protector for the Eb was bent/slightly shifted and catching the key, so I had to shift it back. I may get the sax checked over, it obviously got knocked reasonably hard, but I guess no rush as it seems to play ok.
