Well, I have a fairly nice saxaphone, and the other day a big accident (hence the topic name) happened. I was going to go upstairs to my room to practice my horn when i grabbed my case. The thing that i did not realize was that my case was still open, and out comes my saxophone body, hits the ground on its bottom and then i catch it before any more damage is done. Well, i take it, play it a bit, and it seems to be fine, no leaks or anything. Finally when im putting it back away, i noticed on the very bottom, where theres a curve and a fin, the bottom of the saxaphone is flat (right in the center bottom) and the length of it is 2 inches long and about 1 inch wide. After finding this, I was freakin out . . . a lot. So, i have 3 questions 1) is this going to make my horn sound significantly worse? 2) is there any way to repair it? 3) if there is a way to repair, how much (estimate) do you think it would cost?
