"The tone is colourful and even. The tuning is also judged to be a great success, particularly in the problem area of C - C# and in the third octave. In the judgement of the jury, the instrument has strong, immediate appeal and is easy to play."
The way that I am becoming increasingly familiar with my new flute resembles a kind of voyage of discovery. I must admit that I am totally enamoured of this
I really feel that you have succeeded in further developing the very good instruments built by your grandfather into a new style of flute, which does justice to top-level, contemporary musical tastes and requirements. Your achievements have truly enriched the world of the modern flautist.
The general "objective" requirements have all been excellently met: more powerful tone which is homogeneous throughout all registers, an increased dynamic effect and increased scope, very good response, an excellent intonation scale, good flexibility when it comes to link-ups and shifts and a precise yet silent mechanism.
And then, of course, there is the most important factor, the sound quality: a warmth without any kind of hollowness, a lustrous tone with no trace of emptiness or aggression, a power that is not overpowering, piano yet absolutely complete in essence, a restful, flowing tone devoid of any artificial character, a good balance of lightness and darkness and to complete the perfect picture an impressive degree of resonance.
Dear Mr. Hammig, with great pleasure that I have been playing for 4 years Hammig flute. Even for a layman musician has a lot to offer this wonderful instrument. The sound I would describe as distinctive and unique. With the Hammig flute I bought an instrument for life and have always enjoy it. It is also great as you can when buying try and tune the instruments with different mouthpieces. Thus I was able to purchase an individual instrument. Many greetings from Switzerland. Erich Scheibli
