Zacharia, Eduard



Born at Holzappeler-Hutte, Nassau, where he received his education, studying theology and particularly music, physics and acoustics. He is the inventor of the Kunstpedal for piano, a set of four pedals lifting the dampers from eight divisions of the strings, and for many years he demonstrated this contrivance in the principal cities of Germany. During the last years of his life he has been a pastor at Maxsayn, in the Unterwesterwald district.
