I've got an old mellophone I play a few times a year during football season for alumni band. Unfortunately my 3yo son dropped the horn and introduced a nice warp to the bell. As you can tell from the pictures, it's just a beater, so I'm not upset about it. I thought it might be fun to try to hammer it back it shape myself. Any tips on how to go about this without destroying it? Thanks!
