History

The bandonion, which was invented by Heinrich Band in 1847, was being made by Carl Friedrich Zimmermann in Carlsfeld/Saxony as early as 1854. He sold his business to Ernst Louis Arnold ten years later. His son, Alfred Arnold, took over part of the company in 1911. His bandonions were exported all over the world until the World War II.
