Schimmel Classic Collection
About Classic C 116 Modern
Maximum musical pleasure combined with first-class design produces masterworks such
as the C 116 Modern piano. The clear and minimalist design emphasises the vertical plane
and gives the models stature. New manufacturing techniques and materials, such as the
aluminium employed to provide a counterpoint to the polished piano varnish, highlight
the essential elements of the instrument. The exceptional puristic design has earned these
instruments numerous design awards.
The Classic Collection is the second tier in Schimmel’s piano range after the Konzert series. The three grand pianos in the Classic Collection are known as the ‘Schimmel Trilogy’. This term refers to each of three pianos being different, but as one in their sound system. You are able to share in Schimmel’s full size concert grand experience when you play any of the Classic grand piano models.
All pianos in the Classic Collection are made in Germany and each of the grand pianos in the series are based on the design characteristics of the full size Konzert grand piano K280. The sound system in the middle and treble section and the action of the Schimmel Konzert grand piano K280 was transferred into the Classic grand pianos and thus, the tonal character and touch closely resembles a concert grand.
