The name Kusserow goes back to the Berlin music teacher Ernst Kusserow (1897-1979), who taught and promoted this model and was involved in its development. Through his teaching activities from 1934 as head of the bandonion class at the Stern Conservatory in Berlin, and his advertising for this instrument, it was soon given its name.

Ernst Kusserow received "instruction in bandonion making and construction from Julius Zademack" and learned from one of his journeymen to play bandonion (Graf p. 237). He was also Author of the bandonion school on the left.
