Max Amberger Zithers

Munich native Max Mathias Amberger (1839 - 1889) constructed violins, zithers and guitars from his workshop at Müllerstrasse 27a and is credited with constructing the first concert zither. After his passing, the business remained in the family until 1921, when it was purchased by Hermann Hauser. The Max Amberger name, however, continued to be used until at least 1927.

The above image of a Max Amberger zither label reads "Max Amberger / München / Müllerstr. 27a / Preis Medaille / Paris / London / Wittenberg / Linz /."
