Schimmel: The Art and Craft of Piano Manufacturing
A fine piano defies description, even in the most eloquent of words. The only way to gain an accurate impression
the outstanding qualities of a Schimmel piano is to actually sit down and play it, and discover for yourself why
more musicians and music lovers have chosen Schimmel than any other brand produced by a resident family owned
operated German piano manufacturer.
Schimmel pianos are committed to bringing joy to the hearts of those who play and hear them. With this aim,
devote themselves to the development of the traditional piano. Component for component, Schimmel pianos are
by the hands of experienced craftsmen. Thousands of individual work operations are necessary, over twelve
parts must be assembled, and materials and workmanship carefully matched to each other.
It is with good reason that Schimmel grands and uprights rank among the elite of the traditional name-brand
"Quality" is the word on everyones lips. Some manufacturers who specialise in the lower price classes adorn
products with German-sounding names and attempt to offer cheap imitations to top name-brand pianos. But, in
detail, such instruments remain cheap imitations. To produce a top name-brand piano requires much more. And this
precisely what Schimmel has to offer.
Bernies Music Land has been the Schimmel representative for Victoria since 1994, and is very proud to offer a
magnificent range of Schimmel upright and grand pianos on display on our "Schimmel Stage". In addition, you can
select a Schimmel piano to suit your specific requirements, be it colour, design or something even more special.

warranty, an exclusive "Caring for your Schimmel" booklet and membership to the "Schimmel Owners Club", with
newsletters and special events.
The traditional piano is an extremely complex musical instrument. There are over 12,000 individual parts, assembled in countless work operations. Experience is passed from generation to generation in the Schimmel factory. This is combined with Schimmel's revolutionary CAPE (Computer Assisted Piano Engineering) technology, designed and patented by their master craftsman. The delicate marriage of tradition and innovation produces a piano that is refined to new standards. Read more
