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!! We know that all pianos are complete individuals so for an additional £500 on the usual TwinTone™ price, you can have the model you have played and loved in store.
The main features of the new TwinTone™ system are:
Each Schimmel TwinTone™ silent upright piano is supplied with a pair of Audio Technica stereo headphones!
