Thanks for the post.

Thanks for posting this link on the making of Schimmel pianos!

With the concert pianists in the video, I now know how my piano is supposed to sound like :-) I need to work on my piano playing skills to bring out the beauty of the sound of my Schimmel.

Too bad this video isn't sold in stores. My daughter gave me a video on the making of Steinways, not realizing I didn't have a Steinway.

That was excellent - thanks for the link! It was great to get a glimpse of the factory and staff who made my CC213T.

I agree... it is the best video I've seen yet. Wonder why its not on the Schimmel website.

Thanks for posting this link. A great video. Had a chance to play some Schimmel pianos years ago and they were very nice instruments.
