Remove dents from the end of most mouthpiece shanks with this handy steel tool by Westside Machine, made in Elkhorn, Wisconsin, USA. Formerly sold by DEG.
We recommend use of a rawhide or rubber mallet with this tool. Insert the tool into the dented shank, then tap lightly on the outside to press out the dent. It's kinder to your mouthpiece then using only this tool to press the dented shank outward. Instrument Innovations also makes a full mouthpiece repair kit with brass sleeves to protect the outside of your shank. Perfect for the band director or busy technician.
