Zimmermann is a German piano maker and brand name. The company founder worked for the piano company Steinway & Sons in New York City, United States, before starting his own factory in Leipzig, Germany, in 1884.
As business grew, the Zimmermann company expanded to a second factory in 1904. By 1912 over 10,000 pianos were being built a year making it one of the Europes largest piano manufacturer. Later, it became a global piano exporter within over 400,000 instruments sold world-wide.
In 1992, the C. Bechstein AG took over the company and incorporated it in his Product Range. Modern Zimmerman pianos are produced in Saxony like all Bechstein Instruments, where the Bechstein company has regrouped its production facilities.
We bought this piano about 30 years ago from Selfridges for our musically talented daughter to learn on. It saw her through her childhood and education and she is know a sought after piano teacher.
We must sadly party with our piano now because no-one uses it and we would love for it to go to a warm and loving home.
There is very little wear. A few of the keys have learning stickers on them which can be taken off with care and one of the keys enamel has gotten detached but can easily be glued back on. We have recently had it tuned and overstrung and it sounds perfectly pitched.
Please see the pictures.
