I have several instruments that will now and forevermore play flat, no 
matter what you do to them - -  -- - - -they were doing street street 
repairs in front of my house, and when I noticed that they had an 
asphalt roller I asked them if they would flatten several old brass 
instruments I had.

They thought it was hilarious to watch as I began tossing old 
trombones, trumpets, saxes, and a flute under the roller, and several 
of them began taking pictures.  I wanted them flattened to hang as 
decorations on my fence.  They no longer play sharp, but rather have a 
very "flat" sound.  ( not much change in the cymbal though)
