Who you callin' petit?!
Where I got a bit of print-through was on the top bow of my F tuba, in the vicinity of a small dent that I worked for about an hour. I think I should have given up a bit sooner, heh heh.
There's thick metal and then there's strong metal. My York Master is plenty thick, and I had no trouble with those little dents. The Yamaha is not so thick, but those dents were a bit too springy--the metal really needed to be annealed for the dent eraser to really work. Of course, if you go to that trouble, you might as well take the thing apart.
