Ritmüller Pianos from R. KASSMAN
Founded in 1795, during the lifetimes of composers including Haydn and Beethoven, Ritmüller was one of the first piano factories in Germany. Well known for generations as innovators, Ritmüller created the double soundboard which produces the characteristic warm rich tone now known as the “special European sound”. Today, renowned Swiss piano designer Lothar Thomma, using a combination of old world craftsmanship and modern computerized manufacturing, has re-engineered the entire Ritmüller piano line to reflect it’s classic heritage and a new standard of excellence. Each Ritmüller piano is crafted paying particular attention to a high level of piano voicing demanded by the most discriminating pianists. The playing mechanism, with Renner-type whippens and highly responsive action parts, rewards the pianist with sensitive response, clarity of tone and a crisp touch. Available in a variety of sizes and finishes, the Ritmüller pianos are as pleasing to the eye as to the ear.
Giving credence to the remarkable design and performance capability of these pianos is the fact that the internationally famous Freight and Salvage performance venue recently purchased the new Ritmüller 212 for its new multi-million dollar theater in Berkeley.
