Schimmel has been working tirelessly to develop their very own Silent System featuring samples of their own upright and grand pianos.
Their brand new TwinTone™ system is available on any of their upright pianos from the Fridolin range up to their top of the range Konzert pianos.
They have specifically designed this system so the TwinTone™ system can even be retrofit even after purchase!!
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.
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.
The main features of the new TwinTone™ system are:
Each Schimmel TwinTone™ silent upright piano is even supplied with a pair of Audio Technica stereo headphones!
