In 1895, Gustav Wittner founded a precision mechanical factory for the production of Metronomes, which his son Rudolf Wittner expanded one by one to a medium-sized industrial plant. Soon new standards were established. Besides the Maelzel Metronomes, Wittner started producing the “TAKTELL”. These Metronomes under the registered trademark “TAKTELL” became a term of quality and enjoy a high reputation among the experts of many countries. Thanks to experience and tradition, newest technologies and modern production methods, Wittner became the manufacturer with the widest range of Metronomes in the world.
Besides Metronomes Wittner manufactures other Musical Accessories (Tuning Forks, String Accessory, Stands etc.) as well as articles for storage and maintenance of Sound- and Data mediums. Since 2005 the third and fourth generation – Horst Wittner & Sabrina Wittner – are running the Company together. The Wittner GmbH & Co. KG is worldwide known for the reliability and quality of its products.
