Schiedmayer

Keyboard instrument manufacturing since 1735 – Celesta manufacturing since 1890

For nearly 300 years the Schiedmayer family has been active in the production of keyboard instruments. Already in 1735 Balthasar Schiedmayer built his first clavichord in Erlangen. In 1809, his grandson, Johann Lorenz Schiedmayer, together with Carl Dieudonné, founded the Schiedmayer company in Stuttgart. The art of piano, harmonium and celesta manufacturing has been passed down from generation to generation.

The celesta was invented in Paris in 1886 by Victor Mustel. By 1890, the Schiedmayer firm was already manufacturing this new instrument. Schiedmayer continually improved and further developed the celesta, and since 1980 specialized entirely in their manufacture. The Mustel company discontinued the manufacturing of celestas in 1975 and Schiedmayer
remains the sole worldwide producer of the instrument since.

All Schiedmayer instruments are 100% MADE IN GERMANY, we only use wood types from local forestry. We do not use any material or components originating from endangered animal or plant species.

The unknown intrument

Today, here is hardly an orchestra, music academy, theater or broadcast studio in whisch you cannot hear a Schiedmayer celesta. The instruments are used in chamber music ensembles, pop, rock and jazz bands, and film music.
