There are many good reasons why Schimmel instruments have been the best-selling German pianos for decades: For example, they have had numerous innovations which provide pianists that play smaller Schimmel grands, all the sound and touch characteristics of a full-size concert grand piano. Other reasons for their popularity is Schimmel's status as the German piano maker with the most awards received from the musical press, as well as the timeless design of their cabinetry. Above all however, is the passion to create flexible, musically inspiring instruments which are built to last. Schimmel pianos are created to support and respond to even the most rigorous demands of any piano player to make uniquely beautiful and inspirational music.
