MUSIK SCHWARZ was founded in 1679 and already has 12 generations of family ownership.
Originally, the company dealt in Jew’s harps and retail music products.
Around 35 years ago, the Steirische Harmonika aroused the interest of the grandfather and father of Karl Schwarz, today's business owner.
The appropriate name for our quality product comes from the grandmother. Since she was of Carinthian descent and the grandfather was only too happy to commemorate the good old times, the name ORIGINAL KÄRNTNERLAND Harmonika was decided to be most appropriate.
