has a stag to do with brass instruments?
A stag is to be found as the firms logo
on old woodwind instruments from the early years of
the Hirsbrunner musical instrument makers.
The family coat of arms of the Hirsbrunner Family
also shows a stag. All the illustrations depict the
stag standing by a well or a spring.
The family name of Hirsbrunner can be seen to
correspond with the pictorial illustration.
Hirsch (stag) plus Brunnen (well) makes
Hirschbrunner, or as the name is today written
When Peter A. Hirsbrunner obtained worldwide
recognition with his instruments, the question was
raised for the creation of a company logo.
He remembered the old logo on the woodwind
instruments. This is now being used on the
instruments of the present Hirsbrunner Company.
