Evaluating Straightness of Body Tube

835 Views 4 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  hornfixer
I haven't asked a dumb question in a while (at least not to my knowledge), so here goes...

What's the best way to evaluate the straightness of a body tube? I assume you just eyeball down the neck end? How do you know when there's enough curvature to potentially be a problem? Does any of this vary by size of horn (sop, alto, tenor, bari)?

I look down the inside of the horn.
It is only a problem if it causes leaks.
The best time to straighten the body is when it is getting repadded.
