J. Higham, Manchester • no. 46049 • 1892

Higham was a highly-respected English brasswinds maker in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.  It is no surprise that their pocket design is above-average. Few are known to exist, but are reported as being good players.

The photos show the Higham following restoration in my shop. It was evidently overhauled and replated in its distant past.  It plays in “high pitch” with the very short shank shown.

Length (shank removed): 8.0”

Bell Diameter: 3.75”

Bore: .453
