I can't believe I almost missed this!I'm Craig Heyworth. Jack Heyworth was my Great Great Grandad.
If you've any questions I can try to see what I can find?
Sadly this is the only vid I have of it in action on stage:That's amazing to see! It's also great to hear it's still being gigged!
This one was found in a junk shop. It also had an old mouthpiece with it when I found it but it had been irreparably damaged - as far as I could tell, damaged in the shop as the broken parts were still in the case. The mouthpiece cap, however, was usable so I was able to keep it. It's still used with the Selmer. And it's identical, if in slightly worse shape, to the one you've posted here.So if you've any ideas on where I might continue my search then let me know .
That would be great. If you find any of his shop(s) I'd love to see those, too.We have some pictures of him in our archives so I'll take some pictures when I'm next over at my Grandparents.
I think that's right @stitch. I considered getting Ed Pillinger to open it up for me, but I've found a great mouthpiece that suits my alto. I still might get it opened up.As I think was mentioned in the early stages of this thread, it's most likely a Heyworth-branded Lelandais.
