Upgrading to the latest phone-operated, blue-tooth system is possible with this unit. Official verification from PianoDisc affiliates can be provided upon request. Separate fees for installation and setup apply and can be coordinated with certified vendors directly.
THE KAWAI BRAND
MANUFACTURING HISTORY, PRACTICES + LEGACY OF QUALITY
By pioneering the use of state-of-the-art techniques and materials, Kawai has been the architect of the modern piano for generations. Kawai grand and baby grand pianos are impressive and stately masterpieces – the result of decades-long experience and tradition, perfectly blending artistry and engineering to provide pianists with the uncompromising touch and tone desired in a high-performance piano.
Admired worldwide for their elegant design, responsiveness and tonal clarity, our acoustic pianos are also valued for their ability to adapt to an exceptional range of musical requirements and performing venues. These attributes make them the choice of performers who demand the finest instruments.
The forerunner of today's full line of Kawai grand and console pianos was manufactured in Japan in 1899.
Kawai was founded in 1927 by Koichi Kawai (1886-1955). As a child, he lived next door to Torakusu Yamaha (who had studied watch making under a British engineer) and at the age of 12 helped him build Japan’s first pianos. He worked with Yamaha until the latter’s death in 1927. Kawai then founded the Kawai Musical Instrument Research Laboratory in Hamamatsu. Within a year, Koichi Kawai became the first to design and build a piano action in Japan and just one year later he had built his first grand piano.\
Kawai pianos are characterized by their extraordinary consistency of quality. Their pianos - costing only a third to a half of the equivalent Steinway – and have achieved a more than respectable presence on the concert platform. A highly honorable company. Kawai still offers an absolute guarantee in the form of a Full Warranty on all of their pianos. The only major piano manufacturer in the world to do so, and they honor their warranty as no other company can.
Kawai stands out as being not only consistent in quality but also innovative in its use of synthetic materials. Kawai offers better service and warranties in the U.S. Both Kawai and Yamaha are typically Japanese in making large investments in research and development of piano technologies and in their commercial approach to penetrating overseas markets – starting with design and market analysis to produce saleable products.
Today, Kawal pianos, made by Kawal Musical Instruments, Hamamatsu, Japan, are distributed throughout the U.S. by Kawal America Corporation, a wholly-owned factory subsidiary.
