Johann Joseph Ziegler (1795-1858)

Ziegler's workshop, established in 1821 and operating until at least 1895, was the longest-lived and most prolific of the 19th-century Viennese woodwind manufacturering companies. Its instruments were played in bands and orchestras throughout the period in Austria and Germany, Italy, and Scandinavia, even making appearances in England and France where Boehm-system and hybrid flutes wer more common.

Ziegler's flutes changed with the times: the elegance and panache of the earlier models was superceded by a more robust construction under the influence of the Meyer flute after about 1850.
