Kawai pianos are one of the major mainstream Japanese brands with a long heritage of piano making and a family tradition dating back to 1927. Kawai pianos offer a warmer more mellow tone with a rich distinctive bass and excellent responsiveness through their Millennium III action.
As a dynamic company, Kawai have always been very innovative in the development of piano action materials and incorporate carbon fibre into their ABS Millennium III action parts. The extra strength is considered to offer a faster and more responsive operation with greater power and more control.
Kawai pianos are known worldwide and have been used and selected by many International Competition winners. They have been supplied to places such as the BBC, the Barbican Centre, and the Trinity College of Music, among many other universities, churches and concert halls around the UK and the world.
The Kawai family tradition began in 1927 when the company's founder Koichi Kawai established the Kawai Musical Laboratory where he and his small team built Japans first complete piano action. Inheriting the company dream, Shigeru Kawai, the second president invested in expanding the company and in 1980 opened the Ryuyo Grand Piano Factory one of the largest and most advanced piano building factories in the world. The current president Hirotaka Kawai, who expanded Kawai globally, was appointed in 1989 and continues the family goal of building the highest quality pianos in the world.
The Kawai Piano Company has an impressive environmental record and in 1997 the Ryuyo Grand Piano Facility became the first manufacturing plant in the industry to receive ISO 14001, the world's foremost certification for environmental management. Since then two other Kawai piano factories have also received this certificate.
Kawai use a broad range of woods which are meticulously analysed for quality and character before being selected for each specific purpose. This process gives the pianos that Kawai tonal character which is rich and mellow, with a balanced mid-
Millennium III Action
Kawai pianos use a traditional action developed over many years which uses the latest materials, ABS and Carbon Fibre, to create something expressive, innovative and unique. The new materials convey benefits to durability, playability, and repetition which all need to be experienced in person to appreciate the benefits for touch and tone.
As one of the most innovative companies producing pianos, Kawai have incorporated their wealth of experience in digital piano construction and development to provide a silent system option for their range of acoustic pianos.
Their newest range the AnytimeX3 brings some amazing development in sound technology to acoustic piano players and brings useful features such as recording, monitoring, and playback. These features are all accessible from a touch screen incorporated into the piano keyboard. The AnytimeX pianos can also incorporate a sound board speaker as an additional hybrid piano option.
The style of a Kawai piano is quite distinctive with a sleek modern take on traditional shapes and lines. Many models feature a slow fall keyboard cover and a generously sized music rack which provide an excellent workspace for the player.
