C 169 Black Pearl
With our new grand piano model Classic 169 Black Pearl we have gone one step further. The entire interior of the instrument, including the cast-iron plate, has been finished with the new piano finish, giving it the appearance of being cast in one piece. Here, too, we have chosen the combination with shiny chrome fittings, which creates a special tension in contrast to the black matt surface. Small and fine with a rare and noble appearance. The design reminded us a lot of a rare black pearl, also known as a Tahitian pearl. Which is why we gave this unique model the name "Black Pearl".

One of the strengths of Schimmel Pianos is outstanding designs of grand and upright pianos. Since the company was founded, Schimmel Pianos has always tried new things. Unusual designs, such as the legendary glass grand piano or the Pegasus grand piano, have become icons of piano designs. But even the less extravagant models receive special attention, not only for their musical qualities, but also when it comes to the look. In the 1950s, for example, Arno Schimmel set the trend for many decades with his interpretation of Scandinavian design for the Schimmel small pianos. Newer design features, such as continuous consoles and height-adjustable gliders, characterize our design in such a way that we have won numerous design awards.
Our latest innovation is the matt surface design with an innovative piano lacquer, which not only gives our instruments a velvety soft appearance, but also has practical advantages over conventional matt lacquers.
The process is similar to the process of our traditional glossy piano finish. The housing parts of the instruments are elaborately primed and sanded by hand before the paint is used, so that the shape of the individual parts is given a perfect appearance. The last coat of paint then consists of our new matt piano paint.
While conventional matt lacquers get slightly shiny spots in daily use or get small scratches very easily over time, our new piano lacquer "black super matt" is extremely robust and durable. In contrast, it looks soft and velvety and is also very pleasant to the touch. This turns the instrument into an all-round sensory experience. We use this innovation in our Classic 121 Elegance Manhattan model. The very elegant, straight appearance of this model is underlined once again by the very modern-looking matt black piano finish. Shiny chrome fittings round off the appearance, traditional piano interpreted in a contemporary way.
