Wilhelm by Schimmel


In the year 1885 the first Schimmel pianos are born. It is built by Wilhelm Schimmel in a small workshop in Leipzig, Germany. His philosophies ‘Quality will prevail’ and ‘Solid workmanship is the best patent’ are the foundation for the outstanding quality of his instruments. Combining these qualities with the family’s innovative genius, especially the successful design of the ‘Kleinklavier’ [small piano] in the thirties establishes the fast growth of the company and Schimmel soon becomes the largest German piano manufacture.
