Why Schimmel Classic? 

This a new improved version of Schimmels ever-popular Classic C120T and are significantly more stable, which is particularly noticeable with regard to temperature and humidity sensitivity.

During this years NAMM Show in California, the international piano magazine "Piano Buyer", tested Schimmel's new upright model C121.             

This is what they had to say:

“Right away, the C121’s tone struck me as being exceptionally well balanced throughout the range — rich and singing, particularly in the ‘killer’ fifth
octave, so-called because of the technical difficulty in most piano designs of getting the notes of that octave to sing. In fact, the tone had long sustain and excellent clarity, and was very subtle and complex — more refined than that of its nearest competitors from Japan.”

“Solidly built, it would easily withstand the rigors of institutional use. The C 121 would be an excellent choice for churches, theaters, and venues that require a good instrument but don’t need a grand piano for solo recitals.”

“The Schimmel C 121 presents a tonally more interesting alternative [to the Yamaha U1].”

“It’s a fine piano with a wide range of applications in private home use, study, and piano teaching.”

“. . . it can provide a rewarding musical experience for the professional musician or teacher while still looking good in any room of the house.”

The new C121T is significantly more stable, which is particularly noticeable with regard to temperature and humidity sensitivity
