Schimmel Pianos History

The founders of Schimmel Pianos in black and white
Hand-built in Germany, Schimmel Pianos are fantastic instruments. Their rich tone shines as each note is played. The company was started by Wilhelm Schimmel in 1885. Wilhelm completed his training in Leipzig and began production of his first piano in 1885. His instruments were so impressive the company adopted the slogan “Quality Will Prevail.” Today, the Pearl River Company owns a majority stake of the Schimmel Piano Company, but the pianos are still hand built in Germany the way they always have been. Ellis Piano is proud to carry these magnificent instruments and invite you to play one as well.
