On curved sopranos and straight ones that have two necks, the necks can sometimes get dents. They are a tricky to get out because of the shape and size - and the octave pip getting in the way. If you have the curved neck they tend to slip round when you apply pressure.
Just wondering what you use to get dents out of these. Any tricks/ tips???

(I usually try knuckle dent tools used on brass instruments but it's not ideal.)

Yeah, it's tricky. The octave pip on this one doesnt' want to budge. It's so close to the cork that I'll have to recork it as well. It looks like it should be easy to fix, but nothing wants to shift without a fight. I've just noticed the body to bell brace has been knocked too so I'm going to have to strip it down for more de-denting. <sigh>
