Uhlig's built his first Concertinas around 1834 in Chemnitz. 13 years later Carl Friedrich Zimmermann also began to produce concertinas not far away in his factory in Carlsfeld (pictured), which he had learned to know and play at Uhlig's in Chemnitz.

Zimmermann built larger instruments than Uhlig with "many rows of keys" and soon the first with 2-choirs in octave interval.
