 A wide variety of special characteristics guarantees the top quality of the Schimmel Classic Grand piano series. For example, the duplex scale allows the notes in parts of the middle and treble range to be produced with the aid of two exactly coordinated areas of a single string, resulting in an increased richness in overtones and a longer speaking length of these notes. The soundboards are curved in three-dimensional form, in a manner reminiscent of a dome structure, produced a so-called crown.  The action from the Classic 213 (7′) model is also in the two smaller size grand pianos, the C189 (6’3″) and the C169 (5’7″).  Having the same concert size action and keys in all 3 grands allows the pianist a level of control that only Schimmel can offer.
