About Classic C 189 Tradition
The medium-sized grand piano of the Schimmel Triology meets the high expectations of pianists in a special way. Rigorous construction ideas come together in this most frequently played grand piano size. The C189 is the equivalent of a working tool, for pianists and teachers. An instrument of this nature shouldn’t be too big, because usually space is limited. But it has to be large enough to offer pianists tonal richness and sonority. The precise transfer of part of the action and large parts of the sound system of their full size concert grand into the C189 therefore makes this model an idea ‘tool’ for demanding pianists and teachers.
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.
