Schimmel Classic C169

C169 is in our opinion, the best piano available, of its size.

The sound produced by this instrument is typical of the Konzert series with a great range of dynamics, superb sustain, beautiful clarity and a large palette of tone colors.

Schimmel Classic C130

This is why the combination of first-class sound and corresponding design is so vital.

We also deliver the black polished version with an oval panel inlay � a small but effective stylistic element.
