The accomplished concert pianist Alberto Reyes assessed, with remarkable insight, the entire Schimmel range of pianos. When he worked his way up to the K122 he got lost in his own world and when he finally stopped he simply exclaimed, ‘This is the best upright I have ever played!… it’s absolutely fantastic.’
Nothing could be more pleasing for the piano designers at Schimmel than to have the goals they strived for so clearly recognised by pianists. ‘The piano that completely satisfies’;
The K122 Tradition Upright Piano immediately generates a seldom experienced degree of confidence due to its excellent action’; ‘The most favourable aspect is undoubtedly the very fine structure of the tonal balance which comes into its own through the outstanding, controllable, dynamic level. These qualities transform the piano into an equally refined and precise but also round-toned and singing instrument. It is rare for so many qualities to be concentrated in one piano’; ‘This excellence extends to the bass registers which are well-defined and enable the performance of a great diversity of musical styles to equally great effect.’ These are the verdicts of the judges of Diapason and Le Monde de la Musique magazines conducting ‘blind’ piano tests.
The Soundboard is the soul and voice of a piano. In it is concealed the secrets of tone quality and carrying power of a Schimmel grand or upright piano. Schimmel Scale Designs form the basis of extraordinary tone quality. The sound spectrum and timbers are of exemplary richness, enabling the pianist to precisely transform their artistic intentions into sound.
The Backframe Assembly of a Schimmel piano is solidly built and time tested. Together with the heavy cast-iron plate, it bears almost 18 tonnes of string tension. The Schimmel Keyboard and Action Assembly, designed by Schimmel and produced in Germany, features painstakingly optimised leverage ratios and reliability. Its dynamic modulation potential enables the finest nuances in sound.
