About Classic C 121 Tradition
It is music to our ears when the French musical periodical Le Monde de la Musique describes the
model series as ‘evidence for the great tradition of piano manufacture in Germany,’ and further:
‘Schimmel pianos are without doubt ... more than a mere study instrument ... A direct hit amongst
the instruments tested ... [It] is distinguished by the fine richness in tonal quality and harmonic
structure. This is an instrument which has been thought through right down to the last detail ...’.
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.
