Kawai upright Pianos have a rich history. The founder of the brand, Koichi Kawai was born in 1886. His next door neighbor was Torakusu Yamaha. While working for Yamaha, Kawai helped design one of the earliest pianos ever made in Japan when he was only twelve years old. Kawai gained wide experience while he was working for Yamaha, which eventually saw him establish his own company known as Kawai Musical Instrument Research Laboratory in 1927. By 1928, Kawai had produced the first keyboard actions ever to be exclusively designed and assembled in Japan. He manufactured his first grand piano in 1929. Kawai was finally laid to rest in 1955.
Kawai upright pianos are manufactured using the world’s most advanced actions. All Kawai uprights are designed with an ultra-responsive, direct-blow action that delivers outstanding feel and touch to piano lovers. The soundboard and ribs are designed using top-quality, straight grained dapper that ensures superb lively range and exceptional tone across the whole spectrum of sound. The harp or plates of Kawai upright pianos are constructed to the most accurate specifications, factoring in the natural resonance, to guarantee exceptional acoustical performance. All top-of-the-range Kawai upright pianos utilize hard Rock Maple in bridge construction to ensure proper transmission of vibrations from the strings to the soundboard. The bridges are then carefully notched up to eradicate “wild strings” buzzing. What’s more! The powerful, multi-layered assembly of the back posts of a Kawai upright ensures outstanding structural integrity and superior tuning stability for years of consistent performance. The pin blocks and the keys are also of superior quality. To cap it all, Kawai upright comes with a twelve year transferable warranty on all of its pianos to protect the value of user investment.
For piano enthusiasts, Kawai upright pianos came in many different sizes, quality designs, appearance, and cost. An important point to remember is that larger Kawai uprights produce superior quality sound than the smaller models.
