John Heald & Co.

Recommended Posts

I recently posted images in the TrumpetForum gallery on a late John Heald & Co. American Premier model from the early 1920s (best I can figure is 1922) that was built in Boston, MA.  I'm curious after playing the trumpet - this is a modern style trumpet - in fact plays like Bach trumpets of that era / even today.  They were ahead of their time, and unfortunately went out of business in the late 1920s.

Have any others played a John Heald trumpet from the early 1900s?

I ended up selling the John Heald trumpet this past week.  The trumpet played great, used a cornet size mouthpiece shank. I'm continuing my search for early trumpet/cornets that play well.
