What kindof Bentz? Mercedes Bentz or just regular bentz? :)

Can you post pics? Unless they are really big dents, I shouldn't think they'd have too much effect.

Yes, it shuld not cost too much to repair them, although, as stated earlier, the dents should not affect the playing much, if at all. If they were higher up on the body of the horn, then they would be harder to get too, and more expensive to fix.

העיקומים הקטנים האלה לא אמורים להשפיע על הצליל או האינטונציה בכלל, גם בגלל המיקום וגם בגלל הגודל שלהם. יכול להיות שהמכה עיקמה עוד כמה דברים, אולי אפילו את כל הפעמון, וזה יכול לגרום לזה שחלק מהכריות לא סותמות, ויכול להיות גם ששום דבר לא קרה ואין מה לתקן​

(This is not a mistake but I just answered in a different language)

הכריות סותמות אבל כמו שראיתי הקילוורט עצמו בפעמון מעוצב שהוא עקום
אבל הרגע הרצתי סולמות עם טיונר וכמו שאמרת הצליל לא א נפגע וגם לא האינטונציה (This is not a mistake but I just answered in a different language)

I Play On The Tenor With Tuner And The Tuning And The Sound Not Damged

Berko,

I compliment you for your effort to communicate in a language other than your own. The closer the dent is to the mouthpiece, the greater effect it will have on the tone and the tuning.

במיוחד כדאי לבדוק סי וסי במול נמוכים, כי אלה הכריות שיכולות לזוז מהמכה. נכון שבקיילוורט (וגם בעוד סקסופונים) הפעמון מחובר "עקום" בכוונה אבל הכוונה היתה לתזוזה מהמצב שבו הוא אמור להיות. זאת תזוזה קטנה מדי בשביל לראות, אלא אם כן בודקים את הכריות. אבל אם הכל מנגן כמו לפני המכה אז כנראה שהכל בסדר

ניתאי​

Is that Hebrew script? Does this mean the "writing's on the wall" for the Forum as a whole? Or has Clarinbass just put a curse on me. You know of you read it backwards, it says "SG is the Devil." :D ;)

I can read just enough hebrew to tell you that he isn't making fun of you. :)

I wouldn't worry about the dents if they are by the bow.

Yes it's Hebrew, but if you don't have Hebrew fonts on your computer you can't see how they really look like and it will probably just look like jibrish to you (whatever your computer has instead, usually some weird symbols). Everything I wrote was only answering the questions and advice, nothing to do with anyone else, and since it's Hebrew reading it backwards is the correct direction.

:) Down Under, we call it "Gibberish" and we can all understand it. Every time a politician opens his/her mouth, everytime you run up against the Beurocracy and everytime you get switched through to a call centre in Mumbai. :)
I didn't know you read Hebrew backwards! Does this mean that to you guys/girls, reading English is like reading backwards? That must be tough. I'll start typing more slowly if that helps? :D

And, Clarnibass,
Does it start at the top right or bottom right?
And when it starts, does it head left, or up?
When you hit "Enter", does your computer go UP a line?

I honestly don't know if these are serious questions or not... :)

It starts from the top right and continues to the left. When you click 'enter' it drops a line just like in English. Basically it is like a side mirror of English, only the letters are different so comfortable to write from the right side. It is not like writing English from the right side.

Dog Pants, English it is not like typing backwards. I'm used to it and it is just the same to me. I don't read Hebrew backwards, I read it in the correct direction that's it's written.
