Outstanding Features of the Kawai 503 Decorator Console
(taken from the Kawai catalogue):
“The Kawai 503 console piano performs consistently under the most rigorous playing conditions. Kawai’s advanced technology and discrete use of high-tech materials is an exemplar of intelligent engineering in a form this is affordable.
The quality of the 503 is evident in obvious ways and subtle in others. Kawai’s most advanced technology limits the mass of the plate enabling the solid Sitka Spruce sound board to produce a superior tone.
The 503’s hammers are the best. The strings, bridges, reinforced keybed, action and tuning pins are all crafted and/or machined from the best materials available to insure stability and enduring quality. The 503’s finely crafted design and elegant wood finishes enhance the décor of any room.”
