L'ingresso nel mondo di Schimmel - qualità fin dall'inizio
Nel 1893 Fridolin Schimmel, ispirato dal fratello Wilhelm Schimmel, fonda la propria produzione di pianoforti negli Stati Uniti d'America. Nello scambio spirituale tra i fratelli, fino agli anni '10 del XIX secolo, vengono creati strumenti Schimmel contemporaneamente alla produzione in Germania - in sintonia con il mercato americano secondo il motto: Solidi, robusti e accessibili. Questo motto è stato da noi rinnovato quasi esattamente 100 anni dopo in una serie di strumenti indipendenti sotto il marchio "Fridolin".
Fondamentalmente sulla base delle costruzioni della nostra serie di strumenti "Wilhelm", gli strumenti "Fridolin" sono prodotti oggi a Guangzhou | Cina in uno dei più moderni e più grandi siti di produzione di pianoforti al mondo. La selezione dei materiali, il processo di produzione e la costruzione sono stati modificati con cura nei dettagli senza alterare le caratteristiche essenziali - il risultato sono strumenti solidi, robusti e convenienti con un ottimo rapporto di qualità - prezzo. Qualità fin dall'inizio.
