Schimmel 169DE Grand Piano Description
Schimmel 169DE Grand Piano
This is one owner Schimmel 169DE Grand Piano purchased from the local Schimmel dealer in 2006. It has been in the same home in Portland since it was delivered. The piano has been maintained and serviced regularly it has very little use and looks and plays like new. The cabinet is in flawless condition which includes adjustable and hardly used matching bench. It has rich and clear tone with deep bass, with the popular Renner action made in Germany which offers the player quickness and full control.
Schimmel Pianos was founded in 1885 by Wilhelm Schimmel. Shortly after the completion of his training as a piano manufacturer, he established his own workshop in Leipzig and produced his first piano at the beginning of 1885. by 1894, Schimmel had produced 1000 pianos.
Products made in Germany have an excellent international reputation. This is because German products, like Schimmel upright and grand pianos, stand for the art of engineering as well as innovation, design, craftsmanship and, of course, reliability – in short, quality that people trust in worldwide.
Unfortunately, there are some piano brands which misleadingly label themselves with ‘German design’, ‘German Technology’ or have chosen Germanic names. This creates a false impression that these instruments have been produced in Germany, which can be confusing for customers, as in most cases these copycat products originate from outside the country.
As a result the German piano manufacturers association (BVK) and the German chamber Network of commerce have developed a certificate for manufacturers to use so that customers can easily identify products that are genuinely produced in Germany. There is a strict criteria for manufacturers to meet which then results in ‘made in Germany’ certification. This certificate is then verified every two years to ensure these standards are consistently maintained. This certificate allows potential customers the reassurance that they are investing in a piano which truly encapsulates the prestige of a German product.
Schimmel is proud to be one of the few manufacturers who have received ‘made in Germany’ certifications for their Konzert, Classic and International collections – products that are still being made in Braunschweig, Germany. The Wilhlem range is manufactured in Europe at a facility owned and managed by Schimmel.
In the Schimmel workshop in Braunschweig, instruments of excellent quality are manufactured on the basis of consummate ability and passion. This is also where the most frequently played German-made grand and upright pianos are produced, as Schimmel has made the most substantial contribution to pianos made in Germany during more than 125-year-old tradition.
