Catalogue No: GSCH-K219T-BP
Konzert series grand piano model K219T by Schimmel in black polyester.
This piano is based on the highly regarded K213T model, however has a number of significant developments; most obviously the full length action from the K280T 9 foot concert grand.
This gives the player exceptional levels of control, making playing at all dynamic levels extremely rewarding.
We can automate this piano for you with the QRS PNOMation III or install Ad-Silent System in our workshop. This instrument can also be ordered with Twintone Silent System - please ask for further details.

Why Schimmel Konzert?
Unbelievable range of dynamics really needs to be experienced first hand!
The Schimmel Konzert series is split into two trilogies and the K219T grand is the older brother of the first trilogy of Konzert grand pianos. The philosophy behind the Konzert series is that all the ideal concepts of the large 280cm concert grand should be consistently integrated into the smaller models and, where possible, with identical construction. This enables pianists to enjoy the outstanding touch and tonal characteristics of a large concert grand even when performing on smaller models. Perhaps most immediately obvious to the pianist is that the action is taken directly from the full-sized 280cm concert grand. Thus even the smallest K175 model benefits from exactly the same nuanced control available to the concert stage performer!
Needless to say, considering the size of this piano, this instrument has a fantastically sonorous bass and a wonderful twinkling treble.
- Full-size concert grand piano action - the keyboard action assembly of the longest grand piano is integrated into the smaller model series, providing optimum leverage ratios and allowing the pianist to have the best possible control
- Full-size concert grand piano scale
- Enlarged soundboard area - produces greater tonal volume and superior tonal distribution
- Extraordinary dynamic range is produced by a combination of responsive Renner action custom made for Schimmel by their exacting specifications and a soundboard that incorporates “Dynamic bars”. The detailed clarity of sound, without the harshness that this is often associated with, is a triumph of soundboard design.
- Triplex scaling - provides increased richness in tone and a longer speaking length in the treble
- Keytops made of mineral and ebony - provides a greater sensation of touch and are less slippery than other modern keys
- Mass reduced bridge - produces superior tonal dynamics and longer sustained notes
- Completely designed and made in Germany - BVK Certified

What is TwinTone™?
The silent side of this piano is ideal for families with young children or night owls looking to practice late into the night.
The most common question regarding the silent piano is "is this a digital piano?".
Our range of silent pianos are all completely acoustic instruments; meaning that hammers are still striking strings to produce a sound and therefore have the benefit of playing a real acoustic piano, however, they also have a digital component that simply allows players the option to switch to a digital sound for "silent playing" via headphones.
Schimmels own TwinTone™ silent system, allows for silent piano practise with headphones. With the added flexibility of their innovative TwinTone™ silent system, it is the ideal instrument for busy and demanding musicians wanting to practice without disturbing others.
Schimmel has been working tirelessly to develop their very own Schimmel Silent System which features samples of their own pianos. Their brand new TwinTone™ system has now been released and is available on any of their upright pianos from the Fridolin range up to their top of the range Konzert pianos. The system has been specifically designed so that not only can it be installed in the factory, it is now also available to be retrofit to any Schimmel upright piano!!
