It was in 1885 when the first Schimmel piano was built by Wilhelm Schimmel. Inspired by a pioneer spirit and single-minded perseverance, his goal was always to exceed the expectations of his customers.
From that year on, the Schimmel name has delighted the world with instruments of distinction and beauty. They have produced some of the most provocative designs in the world, including the transparent ‘Plexiglass’ grand piano and the Art Edition, designed by Otmar Alt. In their history, the Schimmel family has overcome the odds to become the first among the resident German piano manufacturers still owned and operated by the original founding family.
Today Schimmel celebrates its fourth generation of family management. Their instruments continue to present the finest hand-crafted quality with the latest in piano technology. With the assistance of CAPE technology (Computer Assisted Piano Engineering) Schimmel produce some of the finest performance instruments in the world.
The new selection of Schimmel pianos include models for home, studio and concert venue. With the addition of the ‘Vogel by Schimmel’ series these magnificent instruments are now even more affordable. Brilliant tone and first-class touch make Schimmel pianos a feast for the eyes and ears.
