What a beautiful looking piano! I love these Schimmel uprights. I think terminaldegree has one as well in his collection!
Yes I am very pleased with the instrument. Actually a very smooth responsive action. I thought Schimmel's were bright in
tone , but I was really surprised that this is not the case with this Konzert 132 .I actually have very little experience with Schimmel as a piano. So this piano still has so many wonderful surprises for me.
In fact the tone is extremely similar to the Sauter 130 .Having a bigger soundboard it sounds even more like a regular sized grand though. While having a powerful bass , I was surprised at how the notes in the treble "sing out ". (and sustain so well too)
For example in the middle section ( in Csharp minor )
of the "famous "Schubert impromptu in A flat , OP 90. The different, changing dynamics are really easy to achieve in the melody against the repeated , changing harmonic chords in the bass.
The sustaining pedal does not overwhelm either and easy to just touch the pedal and half pedal .
I find I am playing playing so many different pieces with different textures. So yes I just love it !
Yes I believe terminaldegree does have a Schimmel 130 although I cannot remember the model. Of course he has the Schimmel Konzert grand .( semi concert ? )
Thank you for your help in discussing this piano with me during the pre purchase period. I am so glad I chose this Schimmel , (and it was there in the store) rather than ordering (blindly) a different model piano (from the one I had)
