In stock! Schimmel constructs instruments to such a high level of craftsmanship, care and build quality that one can honestly say they are second to none. However they can also be surprisingly affordable. Before you plunk down your hard-earned money on a similar sized piano from Yamaha, Kawai or Boston you really owe it to yourself to come and see what the buzz is all about. You will be pleasantly surprised. This brand new 2022 model W-180 is a perfect example of what Schimmel can create. At 6’ 0” it's big, and the wide tail design only adds to the depth of tone. With a darkly assertive voice and clear bell like overtones, the sound is exactly what those looking for a European piano adore. All of the inner casework is amazingly detailed and the ebony polish has been buffed to within an inch of its life. Complete with the matching Schimmel padded top adjustable artist bench, there just isn’t any more to add or want from an instrument. It will take you on a soaring musical journey if you are just strong enough to hang on and go along for the ride. Complete with the manufacturer's ten year warranty and our exclusive trade up policy.
Simple elegance and traditional piano manufacturing meet in our small Wilhelm grand piano. A wonderful symbiosis which allows a musical experience for all senses. The sound, the action and the entire instrument meets the highest demands within an excellent price point.
Being one of only two grand Wilhelm Schimmel grand pianos, the W180 is as affordable as it is elegant. This 6-foot grand piano is among the best grand pianos for its size range and class. The Wilhelm Schimmel W180 stands shoulder-to-shoulder alongside other greats like the Kawai GX-2, the Boston GP-178, and Yamaha C3X.
Completely handmade, the meticulous detailing and fine craftsmanship mark the Schimmel W180 as a distinctly European piano – in everything but the price point. This Wilhelm Schimmel is a robust response to the increasingly popular Japanese alternatives.
Wilhelm Schimmel pianos are renowned for their heavier actions (with a fast attack); you'll find no difference with the W180. Nor does it have extended length leys – but it is heavily regulatory at its Polish factories.
At 6-foot in length, 59 inches in width, and weighing 754 lbs., the Wilhelm Schimmel W180 is regarded as a "Boudoir" size piano. It's slightly larger than most baby grand instruments but is still small enough to be accommodated by most homes.
Inside the piano, the greater body allows for longer strings and a larger soundboard, leading to an authentic European musical experience. Considered by some to be in the Goldilocks zone in terms of tone – being not as bright as the Schimmel Classic nor as dark as the Konzert series – it is an enjoyable balance of the two.
The hammers use Beech shanks to brighten the tone, capped in high-quality felt. Meanwhile, the soundboard is crafted from White Spruce, in contrast to the Sitka typical on Japanese pianos.
Founded in 1882, Wilhelm Schimmel created not merely a world-famous piano-making company but a dynasty of piano makers. Now in their 4th generation, the family business divides their pianos into distinct categories: the upper level, "Konzert"; the traditional "Classic"; the Wilhelm Schimmel in between.
