Schimmel grand and upright pianos have participated in international instrument tests since 1988 and were repeatedly able to bring home top marks. the numerous awards provide proof that the quality of Schimmel instruments are universally acclaimed by experts. For this reason, Schimmel is exceptionally proud that the major music periodical of France Le Monde de la Musique wrote the following about the C169 grand piano, "It's attractive, natural tone lengths combined with a velvety and arm construction of tonal colours are suitable for the widest range of repertoire. It stands out as a grand piano with noble character: the greatest out as a grand piano with noble character: the greatest care in its manufacture and its richness in tonal colouring predestine the instrument for musicians. The Periodical Pianist describes the C189, "An organ piano which is suitable for all musical styles and can be adapted for a variety of situations thanks to its excellent tonal vibrancy." And Diapason wrote of the K 132 model "The homogeneity of all registers is faultless. The feeling of touch allows all performing intentions to be fully expressed and display no weak points."

Even with the smallest Classic C169 grand piano, we do not compromise. Partwise the identical action and large parts of the 'sound system' from our full-size concert grand is implemented. Combined with our extreme soundboard expansion in the lateral region, this creates a true giant among the small grand pianos that are effortlessly comparable to the larger grand pianos. This uniqueness can be heard and felt.
