Olds Trumpet

Do dents in my trumpet affect my playing at all?

I have a pretty old trumpet and i noticed that there are a few dents on it. Will this affect the playing?

Small dents in the horn generally do not affect the tone quality of the instrument. However, dents in places like the lead pipe can lead to tuning problems, especially if the dent is deep. Larger dents in the tubes of the horn can also affect tuning, but from your description it sounds like this is not the case. It would be worth it in the long run to take it to a music repair shop to have the dents hammered out; you can also get a nice polishing job to make your trumpet look fresh!
