The Kawai K15E has probably the best tone and action from any modern piano made today. Although this is the entry-level piano from Kawai, it is quite simply a fantastic piano to play and listen too. The modern styled cabinet design with the polished ebony finish, is really something to admire and be proud of. It will grace any home, whether it is in a bedroom or living room. What makes the Kawai so special and different to other similar modern pianos? It is quite simply the piano action. The Kawai K15E has a beautifully balanced piano action, all down to the slightly longer key length. As a result, it really does give you some incredible dynamic control and quality response.
When it comes to playing piano, nothing gives you the same feeling or emotional connection as a real acoustic piano. The sound and experience you get from playing a real piano is never fully replicated on a digital piano. Although the digital piano offers a lot of qualities and features, the acoustic experience is very different. So when it is time for you to choose your piano, wherever possible, make it the real thing, you will never regret it. Furthermore, the K15E can fit into most households, without compromising the room or furniture.
Premium Quality Solid Spruce Soundboard
The soundboard and ribs on the acoustic piano really help to create the final sound being produced. Regarded as probably the most important sound producing components of the acoustic piano. Both the materials used and the manner in which they are assembled greatly affect volume and tonal quality. The K15E soundboard uses the finest quality straight-grained spruce in it’s production. In addition, it is carefully selected and scientifically tested to exceed KAWAI’s demanding resonance standards. This ensures exceptional dynamic range and outstanding tonal balance across the entire sound spectrum.
Excellent Touch, Superior Reliability
The K15E features the exclusive Ultra-Responsive™ direct blow action, with selected hardwood hammer shanks and 100% wool felt hammer heads. This provides an extraordinary touch and feel. To improve the action’s climatic stability, KAWAI pioneered the use of aluminium action rails, aluminium hammer rest rails and ABS action parts – addressing many of the problems associated with wooden components, such as breakage under continual high stress, and shrinking/swelling due to changes in temperature and humidity.
Contemporary Design, Attractive Price
In addition to the exceptionally large solid spruce soundboard, the K-15E also utilises four fully laminated back posts, delivering optimum rigidity and enhanced tuning stability. With attractive ‘continental’ styling and compact design, the K-15E is a contemporary instrument suitable for today’s modern living environments. Offering impressive specifications at an affordable price, this instrument represents an exceptional introduction to KAWAI quality for families and first-time piano buyers.
