FRANZ KUNG was one of the early pioneers of 20th Century Recorder making. He founded his workshop in the family villa at Schaffhausen, Switzerland in 1938, and by the early 1950s he was winning international awards for his work. He continued making until his death in 1977, and has been succeeded by several generations of Kung family members.

The current model line-up began to appear in the 1970s and 80s, and has been refined in the subsequent decades into some of the most finely finished and prestigious recorders available.
