The Gemeinhardt story begins with Kurt Gemeinhardt,
a fourth generation flute maker.
He was born in Markneukirchen, Germany,
a region with two centuries of instrument making tradition,
and served an apprenticeship under his father.
Upon completion of his apprenticeship,
Kurt left Germany to work his trade in St. Gallen, Switzerland,
where he crafted handmade flutes for the world's most prestigious musicians.
While in Switzerland his fame as the foremost creator
of quality hand-crafted musical instruments spread worldwide.
In 1928, Kurt Gemeinhardt was persuaded to travel to America
to create instruments in Elkhart, Indiana.
After twenty years of developing flutes for others,
Kurt opened his own manufacturing plant,
The Gemeinhardt Company,
where every instrument since has been engraved
with the Gemeinhardt name.
Initially, Kurt's vision was to produce a limited quantity
of professional all-silver flutes,
but demand for his unique flutes
increased beyond his expectations.
The original 20- by 40-foot Gemeinhardt factory
was replaced in 1951 with a new plant,
designed by Kurt himself, to meet new manufacturing needs.
By this time the Gemeinhardt line expanded to include mid-priced flutes,
soon followed by the introduction of entry-level flutes.
Gemeinhardt's newest expansion occurred in September 1997
with the acquisition of Roy Seaman Piccolo Company.
Roy Seaman manufactures handcrafted, grenadilla wood piccolos.
This legendary name is known worldwide for professional quality instruments.
Through growth and product demand,
Gemeinhardt emerged as the music industry's largest
exclusive manufacturer of flutes and piccolos.
Today, Gemeinhardt Co., Inc. manufactures flutes and piccolos
for all levels of musicians,
ranging from student to professional.
With the advancement of technology,
sophisticated machinery enables a level of precision
and consistency that was once uncontrollable.
But, it is the human touch that properly fits and regulates each flute
to reach optimum sound quality and
Here at Gemeinhardt Musical Instruments we globally manufacture our instruments, utilizing the talent, expertise, and efficiencies of our factories in the U.S., Taiwan, and China. For example, many of the key components are produced in all three countries, the C flute head joints, and all of our piccolos are made in the U.S., The flute final assembly is done in Taiwan and China to meticulous standards.
