Solling - Hümmelke
This Instrument was built by Adolf Hilke in the town Moringen in the Solling mountains between Hannover and Gttingen in Germany. Hilke built his first hummel in 1871. He and his son built 8 to 10 instruments which all but the first had disappeared. Now this Hmmelke was sent to me by a relativ of Hilke for restoring. The instrument hang on the wall for decoration without strings for more than 40 years. Great - it came to public again !!!
