The CA67R digital piano captures the magnificent tone of Kawai’s flagship Shigeru Kawai SK and EX full concert grand pianos. But not only that you can also enjoy the shigeru Kawai SK-5 medium-sized grand piano. Furthermore the CA67R utilises Kawai’s latest Grand Feel II wooden-key keyboard action. This draws upon over 85 years of acoustic piano craftsmanship to provide an exceptionally realistic playing experience.
When it comes to style and looks the CA67R has it all. The beautifully warm looking rosewood satin finish along with the brass detailing on the pedals, make this a piano to grace any home. In addition you feel you are sitting at a real acoustic piano as the control panel sits over at the left hand side.
The CA67R features cleverly positioned speakers at the back of the piano facing upwards, this wonderfully lifts the sound to your ears in the same way an acoustic piano surrounds you with its tone. In addition the Kawai Shigeru grand pianos are carefully recorded, meticulously analysed, and faithfully reproduced. This is done with full 88-key sampling using the latest Harmonic Imaging™ XL sound technology. This unique process accurately recreates the broad dynamic range of the original grand pianos, affording pianists an extraordinary level of expressiveness ranging from the softest pianissimo to the strongest, boldest fortissimo.
Just like a grand piano, the eighty-eight black and white keys are crafted entirely from long pieces of wood. These also pivot on a central balance pin in a smooth, seesaw-like motion. The Grand Feel II piano keyboard action matches the pivot point distance of a Kawai grand piano. The forward and backward movements of each hammer are precisely measured using triple-sensor technology. This provides faster key repetition, improved responsiveness, and enhanced playing realism. Finally, the Grand Feel II keyboard action features Kawai’s Ebony & Ivory Touch key surfaces. These finely textured materials gently absorb moisture to assist playing control. They also possess a natural, matte finish that is smooth, but not slippery.
You are also able to record your performances to USB. This is brilliant to aid with practice or even for composition. Not only that you can play Wav or MP3 files directly from a USB stick. If you like to experiment with different sounds or combinations you will be right at home here too. With Dual voice, Split and a host of clever effects you are able to have a whole lot of fun.
You can play the CA67 through headphones, completely shutting down the speakers, letting you play whenever you want.
