Schimmel C189 Tradition

The medium-sized grand piano of our Schimmel Trilogy meets the high expectations of pianists in a special way. Rigorous construction ideas come together with the most frequently played grand piano size as working tool for pianists. The instrument shouldn't be too big, because often space is limited. But it has to be large enough to offer pianists tonal richness and sonority. The precise transfer parts of the action and large parts of the sound system of our full size concert grand into the C189 therefore makes this model an ideal "tool" for demanding pianists. 

The German Standard

A shining example of exclusive instruments "Made In Germany", Schimmel Classic pianos are built with balanced, harmonious sound and quality which has proven itself over the decades. Classic pianos offer the basis for premium "all round" application for both institutional and private use.

How Schimmel Quality Is Created
 
The Soundboard is the soul and voice of a piano. In it is concealed the secrets of tone quality and carrying power of a Schimmel grand or upright piano. Schimmel Scale Designs form the basis of extraordinary tone quality. The sound spectrum and timbers are of exemplary richness, enabling the pianist to precisely transform their artistic intentions into sound.
 
The Backframe Assembly of a Schimmel piano is solidly built and time tested. Together with the heavy cast-iron plate, it bears almost 18 tonnes of string tension. The Schimmel Keyboard and Action Assembly, designed by Schimmel and produced in Germany, features painstakingly optimised leverage ratios and reliability. Its dynamic modulation potential enables the finest nuances in sound.
