The celesta for smaller budgets
With its 5 octaves, this celesta musical instrument covers the entire repertoire of the Romantic period and brings the characteristic precise and unique playing experience of Schiedmayer instruments to life. The high quality, tailor-made steel plates, the resonators made of German beechwood and the exceptional action mechanism designed according to Victor Mustel produce the famous “heavenly” and surprisingly voluminous sound, considering the smaller size of the celesta.
Famous excerpts such as the “Nutcracker Suite” by P.I. Tchaikovsky or “Der Rosenkavalier” by Richard Strauss can be performed excellently on this instrument. However, for more modern literature we recommend the 5 ½ octave model, since many contemporary composers make full use of this range. Thats why we offer different celestas for sale. It is sometimes possible to purchase a refurbished or demonstration model – for more information about the celesta instrument, price and purchasing options please contact us using the contact form.

“We uncrated the celesta today, as it will be needed in orchestra rehearsal in a few days.
As a result, I wanted to write to you to say that I am absolutely delighted with the new 5-octave celesta. Everything works well, the sound is rich and full, and the cabinet, beautiful. The travel cabinet is sturdy and well-made. We have several pieces on which it will be played this fall, including Bartok’s Music for Strings, Percussion and Celesta.”
“We are very happy for the instrument, in fact I have to tell you, we had a player few weeks ago who actually is the former pianist in the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra and now the orchestra pianist in the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra in Stockholm, and he said that he never had played on such a good celesta, with so beautiful sound.”
