PHILOSOPHY AND AIMS
The craftmanship on our instruments goes down to the smallest details. With more than 50 years of experience in making musical instruments and intensive research and development our models comply to the high expectation a professional musical instrument should have.

The FINKE instruments are the product of a unique philosophical approch. It is possible to keep the traditional style and sound of the instrument and to reach an improvement of the response, intonation and flexibility, at the same time. Therefor the development of each instrument was based on the desire of a certain sound concept, but to leave the player enogh room for exposition.

THE FINKE SYMBOLS
The three bells have been part of the logo since the beginning. They have been slighly modified. The original idea came from Helmut Finke.
 
The name "Finke" (finch, a bird) first appeared in Germany around 1223 as Vinck or Vink. It was the expression for a bird catcher/trader, also used for a carefree, fond of singing person.
 
For centuries the rose of Lippe was the symbol of the duketum and independent state of Lippe. The county Lippe is only a few hundred meters from our home and you find the rose on every boundary stone.
