Herman Wilhelm Hammig Viola

Recommended Posts

Has anyone seen a Hammig viola sell recently?  I know they are rare. I have seen one listed as sold previously, but I can't find the source now. 

Are there any Germans watching this site who know more about these?

Herman Wilhelm Hammig was a pretty interesting maker. When I was still in NY  I have seen a very nice Strad 'copy'. I would say his work has somehow the rank of Gand & Bernardel. Very consistent workmanship and pasty oil varnish of good texture and transparency applied.

Unfortunately I can't help with a viola.

Hammig was a huge family who worked for at least four generations. Without knowing which Hammig you are asking about there is no way to know the price. I also think there were quite a few instruments labeled Hammig which had nothing to do with them

Sorry , didn't see that you had specified Herman Wilhelm
