How good is a Schimmel?
« on: December 26, 2002, 02:17:46 PM »
I'm willing to buy an upright piano.

So I have found those brands: Schimmel, Kawai, Yamaha, Petrof, ...
Of all those, I founded that the Schimmel was the most warmth while playing.

Has anybody got some comment or price-indications?
(I was interested in the models about 125-132 cm)

Kind Regards  :)

I have a schimmel which I Bought 4 years ago.
It's the tallest one, I can tell you it has a wonderful mechanic, I also prefer it to a 10 years steinway model C which we have in conservatory. The Steinway has a too heavy keyboard. Only thing I don't like in my piano is that it is too difficult to make a good piano, while the forte or mf is wonderful. If you take a Schimmel I think you'll like it. Anyway try most pianos possible before buying one.

P.S. How long have you been studying piano?

It is now the fifth year that I'm playing the piano. So I can say that I've got yet a bit of experience  ;).

I agree with Chopinfan.

Schimmel makes a very nice piano, but play as many brands as possible before deciding. I might suggest Charles Walter as a possibility. Made in USA and also very nice.

Good Luck,
