The history of the production of musical instruments marked Josef Lídl
began more than one hundred years ago, when the workshop of Josef Lídl
was founded. This workshop began to work in 1892, first as a trading
company and repair shop for musical instruments. This repair shop spread gradually
to the first musical instruments factory in Moravia.
The history of the production of musical instruments in Czech countries
has a rich tradition. Its beginnings date back ot the first half of the 17th
century. Josef Lídl's workshop linked up to the experience of the
producers from several well-known regions, such as Luby by Cheb or
Kraslice. Soon, however, the firm educated its own specialist who began
to spread its high repute. This horn has a few dents in the crooks but they
could easily be repaired.
