The Schiedmayer 5.0 Octave Celesta with a black oak finish is a part of the basic equipment of every orchestra worldwide. This model offers the ability to perform a large amount of repertoire for a smaller budget.

This model, like all Schiedmayer celestas, distinguishes itself by its light, balanced touch and the typical complex, overtone-rich celesta sound. With the 5 1/2 octave model the complete celesta repertoire can be performed.

The Schiedmayer family has been manufacturing famous keyboard instruments for more than 250 years.  Balthasar Schiedmayer built his first clavichord in 1735 in Erlangen.  The tradition of making musical instruments was passed on from generation to generation.  The Schiedmayer Company, established in 1809 in Stuttgart by Johan Lorenz Schiedmayer, began producing celestas in 1890.  There are hardly any prominent symphony orchestras, opera houses, theaters, music schools, recording studios or broadcasting stations that do not boast a Schiedmayer instrument.  Unsurpassed for fullness of sound and superb instrument quality, the Schiedmayer Celesta Company has become the worldwide leading manufacturer for celestas and keyboard glockenspiels.
