The optional Schimmel TwinTone™ Silent System was designed by Schimmel to be incorporated into any of their new upright pianos from each of their four lines (Fridolin, Wilhelm, Classic, and Konzert Series).  The system is available as a factory installation, and Schimmel has specifically designed this system so the TwinTone™ system can also be installed in these models by an authorized Schimmel dealer as a retrofit after purchase.

The  TwinTone™ Silent System enables the acoustic (real) piano to instantly be transformed into a digital piano that the player can control and listen to with headphones. As an acoustic instrument, the hammers of the piano are still striking strings to produce a sound and therefore the player retains the benefit of playing a real acoustic piano, however, pianos with the TwinTone™ silent system also have a digital component that simply allows players the option to switch to a digital sound for “silent playing” via headphones.

This flexibility allows the player to perform in silence whenever desired and to record performances digitally for future playback and editing.  The added flexibility of the innovative TwinTone™ silent system makes it the ideal instrument for busy and demanding musicians wanting to practice or record without disturbing others, and is also a great feature for families with young children taking lessons.

The piano samples used to create the sounds for the TwinTone™ silent system were created using a meticulous recording process featuring Schimmel’s new 9’-2” K230 Concert Grand and the ever-popular Konzert upright K122E.  Additional sounds include 3 electric pianos, 1 harpsichord, 3 organs, and 2 string sections (strings can be combined with piano sounds).
