The Wilhelm Schimmel W180, designed for home use, would meet the requirements of musicians, families, and students on a limited budget who need a high-quality instrument. Designed by Schimmel in Germany and made by Schimmel in Europe, the Wilhelm Schimmel W180 has a typically high-quality Schimmel tone, rich and clear. The sustain is excellent, as is the balance between the treble and bass. This piano is powerful enough to be used in small concert venues, and it would also be an excellent choice for home use and in music studios. In reviews of the W18, the versatility of the tone of the W180 has been described as being capable of producing wide dynamics, from intimate to powerful, and, unusual for a piano in this price range, the tonal color changes with changes in volume throughout the dynamic range. With many other instruments in this price range, the tone seems to weaken at the extremes of pianissimo and fortissimo.
