gladly took up Regina Engelhardt’s and Arne Siebling’s concrete idea for a new flute shape immediately, implemented it in terms of craftsmanship and built a first prototype, which Regina Engelhardt was able to try out thoroughly and happily. In the course of time, he additionally tinkered with various hand supports that could be a relief for the new flute shape.
Arnd Mumberg knew very early on that he wanted to become a woodwind instrument maker. After his journeyman’s examination in 1986, he worked in his profession for 15 years until he felt the desire to develop further and become self-employed.
