Hello!

I found a listing on Craigslit for a Schimmel baby grand:

Schimmel 5'1 Chippendale
Manufactured in 1989.

I haven't played a Schimmel grand before. Any thoughts on this? How's the action/touch/tone? I may go see the piano this weekend, but wanted to find out opinions from people who have played this model first. Assuming normal conditions for a piano this age, what would be a fair price?

Thanks!
MCha

I've searched everywhere for information on a Schimmel 5'1, but it just doesn't exist.... confused

I found out from the current owner that it hasn't been played much but also that it hasn't been tuned for 10 years. Should I be concerned about the quality of this piano then?

Find out the serial number first, then look here http://www.schimmel-piano.de/index.php?id=546&L=1

I love the tone of my schimmel, but the piano you are looking at is 22 years old, it really depends how it has been looked after.....
