Little John,

Traditionally, brass instruments have been engraved with a flat graver using a technique known as wriggle tooling. If you check out this link you will see Jason DuMars using the technique on the bell of a saxaphone. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s5OEDVrOtRg

Click on the link under may signature to go to my illustrated glossary where you can learn about terms like flat graver and wriggle tool.

Regards,

RB
