Tebaldo Monzani began his workshop in London with the experience of having been a professional flute-player. He also composed and published music (Monzani & Cimador) and probably made his first flute circa 1801. Monzani is credited with putting serial numbers on his instruments before anyone else thought to do so. Monzani retired and was succeeded by Hill in 1829. Monzani was quite prolific and many of his flutes are favored even today by Irish and Baroque flute players for their elegant workmanship.
