Description

Herman Hauser I needs no introduction to the classical world. However, aside from the family of Spanish guitars for which he is best known, Hauser I also built a number of other instruments according to the musical trends of the turn of the twentieth century, among them zithers and even lutes. Here we have an example of his Vienna Hybrid model, a design favored in the Munich music scene with Maple body over Spruce, an adjustable neck, mustache bridge, and zero fret. The sound is lively and quick, with a punchy, bright treble register that cuts through the mix. The bass register is energetic and brassy and projects with a crisp sweetness. Playability is superb, plus this Vienna model with its thin sides (only 3” at the tail) weighs in just over three pounds.
A remarkable example of one of traditional lutherie’s giants, this Hauser I Vienna model is a testament to his enduring legacy.
