They just do not come any better than this. Here is a Schimmel C116 that has more power, touch and tone than any other upright piano out there right now. Why do you ask? Well, how about the fact that the German engineering, quality of materials used and expert craftsmanship all combine to create something truly a cut above. Try, just try to find any other upright with a handmade Renner action in it. Renner is renowned throughout the world for the touch, feel and control of their actions…players revere them.

This 1994 Schimmel model C116 is part of the expensive Classic series and is 46” tall but plays much bigger. The Bavarian spruce soundboard wood is reserved for Schimmel’s exclusive use and only adds to its strength and depth of tone, the German Roslau strings make it sing and purr and the keytops feel like jewels under your hands. Fully voiced and regulated by one of the area’s top technicians, it has also received a concert level tuning. The inner casework is near perfect (see photos) and the ebony polish has been buffed to perfection. Complete with the factory padded top bench, there just isn’t any more to add or want from an instrument. These are $24,915 new so it will go fast at this price. Do not hesitate to call us and schedule a time to come and play this magnificent example of the European style of piano.

All Orpheus Music Group pianos receive a great deal of care and attention during the preparation process managed by three separate teams of specialists to ensure each piano looks and sounds its best before it is offered for sale. Each team treats the instruments as if it were coming into their own home! For more details, check out our piano preparation process. 

Orpheus Music Group piano deliveries still use specialized piano boards and heavy duty pads and covers to protect your piano and floors instead of cheap wooden dollies. Free delivery within 25 miles of 22046 (5 total stairs) is included in all piano prices.
