Hammig, Wilhelm Hermann
He learnd the craft of violin making in Markneukirchen from his father August Hammig. In 1875 he moved to Leipzig. This is the onliest Hammig-bow maker we could find. Hammig is a typical name for our region and famous for violin making in the past and flute making in the presence.
