Made in Germany in 2003, this Nikolaus W. Schimmel Edition design came in 2 sizes…the 6’3″ K189NWS listed here & the 7′ K213NWS. Prominently featured in each NWS edition is the Neo-Classical cabinet in ebony accented by panels of “quilted” pommele sapele veneer on the fallboard, inner rim, and underside of the lid. Further pearwood inlays bring just the right contrast to this handsome piano.
Production of these instruments was very limited, each overseen by Klavierbaumeister Nikolaus W. Schimmel and ultimately signed by him. We include the original Letter of Authenticity.
As an instrument, it is exquisite. The Nikolaus W. Schimmel Edition is not only from Schimmel’s Konzert series – their highest level of production – it also features numerous prototype designs that require far more hand-labor than the regular Konzert series. The result won Schimmel more awards than any other European maker in the 21st century. Precise control over a wide dynamic range and full color palette make it perfect for any Classical, Jazz or Modern repertoire.
