The Fridolin Schimmel upright pianos are named after the brother of founder Wilhelm Schimmel, these instruments are completely designed by Schimmel in Germany and made by their strategic partner, Pearl River, in China. Every instrument is fully checked and prepared by the factory in Braunschweig to ensure their excellent quality before being despatched to the dealer.
It may come as a surprise to learn that Pearl River is the world's largest piano manufacturer by far; producing approximately 140,000 pianos per year. Forsyth has visited their brand new "State of the Art", climate-controlled and highly automated production facilities where the Fridolin range is produced, overseen by senior Schimmel technical staff. Every detail of these uprights has been designed by Schimmel piano engineers, including the action, acoustic assembly and casework. The result is a piano that is not only great value for money but clearly belongs to the Schimmel family of sound and touch. The action is accurate and responsive, and the sound is big, rich and full; in true Schimmel style, it belies the instrument's physical size.
Forsyth are one of a very select handful of authorised Schimmel dealers in the UK and the only one in the North West of England. All new Schimmel pianos supplied by us are carefully prepared to the highest standards and supplied with Schimmel's 5-year warranty and official 'Care and Maintenance' booklet.
