This conservatory-quality Schimmel grand piano was handcrafted and built in Germany in 1997. The case of the piano is finished in high-polished Bubinga (African Rosewood). Since the 18th Century, woodworkers have prized Bubinga for its rich color and fantastic figure. French Renaissance furniture makers dubbed it “bois de rose d’Afrique” or “African Rosewood” and frequently incorporated it into high-end pieces for their wealthy patrons.
A Conservatory-Quality Schimmel Grand Piano
Schimmel has been a pioneer in the use of CAD (Computer Aided Design) in their production alongside specialized hand-craftsmanship. Their pianos are known for their precision and consistency and prized for the quality of their tone and their powerful rich sound.
Gold and Brass Accents Throughout
The finish on this piano is exquisite with its rich reddish-brown finish, stylish gold and brass accents throughout, and even a crest with gold leaf on the plate. The Schimmel Diamond Series pianos feature upgrades to the standard models. Most noticeable are the gold-colored plate (instead of a copper color), double-locking casters not featured on standard models, a slightly different shape to the legs with different ferrules, and a brass accent at the joint. The plate of the piano has also been personally signed by Nikalaus and Viola Schimmel.
