Background of Schimmel Konzert K132 Upright Piano
The Schimmel Konzert K132 Upright Piano isn't for the faint-hearted, standing at an imposing 52". This remarkable Schimmel upright piano boasts a full-bodied tone you'd happily mistake for a mid-sized grand. Produced by hand exclusively in Germany, it's a tour de force of European piano making, combining impeccable hand craftsmanship with computer-aided design. There's nothing quite like the Schimmel Konzert K132 – in sound or production.
Some regard it as the "crown jewel" of modern piano making – few musicians will ever have the delight or the pleasure of playing anything better. If you're after a small- or even medium-sized grand piano, the Schimmel Konzert K132 is a worthy contender.
Specifications of Schimmel Konzert K132 Upright Piano
The piano's cabinet is robust and stalwart, made of either polished ebony or mahogany; even from first glance, it has a serious demeanor hinting at the magic beneath the surface. The Schimmel Konzert K132 features a top action designed using the company's proprietary Computer Assisted Piano Engineering (CAPE) software. Renner built the action itself to the precise specifications – resulting in a highly fluid action brimming with finesse.
Most notable are the doubled-felted mahogany core hammers supplied by Wurzen – a German company. Continuing the German theme, the soundboard is made from AAA Bavarian Spruce that has been extensively aged and then tapered to enhance the tonal projection – it's identical to those found in the Schimmel upright piano Konzert grand piano series.
History of Schimmel Konzert K132 Upright Piano
Schimmel was founded in the late 1800s by Wilhelm Schimmel, who learned his craft at the legendary Vogel & Sohn factory in Leipzig, Germany. The family, currently in their 4th generation, maintains an active role in the business – maintaining their great-great-grandfather's proud traditions.
The Schimmel upright piano Konzert line is the upper level of the company's piano selection, employing not just the finest craftsman but the latest computer-enhanced design. It's quite simply the best upright piano in the world.
