    You should break it MORE. Then drop it into cement.

    I was fiiddling around with the Christie's auction website to look up something completely unrelated, and I found this piece of art by Fernandez Arman, called "Saxophone." It sold for $71,394.

    (I can't find a bigger pic, but the horn is either an Evette-Schaeffer or one "borrowing" their patent: it's got the extra keys for C#/B/Bb above the D/E/F keys.)

    You know it does cost good money to rent a steam roller.

    Techs have always said to rent a steam roller for certain instruments.
    I guess someone has actually gone and done it now ...

    Why fix it?

    I'm sure the owner was playing sharp all the time. This process, of course, flattens it a bit :)

    You only have to sell one. :) BTW shouldn't this be in the "How Much Is My Horn Worth" section?
