A piano is more than an instrument: perhaps it can even be termed a synthesis of the arts. This is for example borne out by the valuable and unending variety of the exotic woods with their sheer inexhaustible richness in colouring utilized in the building of Schimmel instruments. For our grand piano series Tradition, we have selected only the best – exotic woods with a special character. These woods must be crafted with both great care and the highest art of workmanship in the technique of veneer. This has always been an integral part of the Schimmel craftsmanship tradition and is a guarantee for the consummate attractive and durable casing of our grand and upright pianos.
