Why Schimmel Konzert? 

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 K122E Schimmel incorporated many of the design features from their Konzert grands, such as:

  • Scale design is taken directly from the 280 Concert grand and, uniquely for upright pianos it has full Triplex stringing to enhance sustain in the treble and the richness of sound. 
  • 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.
  • Real ebony wood black key and white mineral keytops to imitate ivory allowing for a more natural and tactile feel
  • Mass reduced bridges to allow more flexibility and resonance within the soundboard
  • Completely designed and made in Germany

The K122E is part of Schimmel's Konzert series, representing the pinnacle of their expertise in building upright pianos of the highest quality.  The K122E is the award-winning smaller brother of the flagship K132T, and is also made in the same part of the factory as their grands, by the company's most experienced and skilled piano builders.  It is an upright with an endless capacity for tonal and dynamic variation, allied to a level of refinement that makes it an ideal instrument for a home where only the very best upright piano will do.

These are the verdicts of the pianist judges of Diapason and Le Monde de la Musique magazines in France, the home of the “blind” piano test. 

“The piano that completely satisfies"

“This 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 also extends to the bass registers which are well-defined and enable the performance of a great diversity of musical styles to equally great effect."

 No wonder the K122E is one of Schimmel's best selling models worldwide.
