The Kawai E-2 upright acoustic piano in satin black is an elegant and highly sophisticated model that has features groundbreaking technology developed by a company who are renowned for their impeccable instruments. Established in the 1920s, Kawai has remained true in their quest for excellence, integrating sophisticated machine-driven manufacturing processes alongside elegant hand-finished appointments with exquisite results.

Powerful Beating Heart

At the heart of the piano is the impressive straight-grained, quarter-sawn, solid spruce soundboard. Each piece has been hand-selected with extreme care, and must pass their rigorous testing procedure before being used in the construction of the E-2. The soundboard transfers the instructions from the keys with absolute precision, the utmost clarity and total articulation. Great care has been taken to deliver a finished product of exceptional quality.

The height of the piano stands at a mere 113.5cm (45 inches), which allows the piano to fit discreetly into any environment, whilst producing the fullest and richest timbre possible. The E-2 has additional features such as the “Soft Fall” fallboard, which has a dual-damping mechanism to protect player’s hands and the piano’s finish. There is also an extended music stand that allows you to spread out and display more sheet music whilst you're practising or performing.

Pioneering Alternative Materials

In keeping with their philosophy to pioneer the use of sustainable, alternative materials in their instruments - without compromising on quality -, Kawai's design engineers created ABS (Acrylonitrile-Butadiene-Styrene) to supersede wooden parts. The improved resilience of ABS means that parts are less likely to become compromised due to changes in humidity and temperature, which significantly improves the longevity of this fine instrument.

Kawai's Millennium Action III technology utilises an ABS/carbon fibre composite, to increase the strength of parts within the piano, reportedly making them 90% stronger than traditional wooden parts, whilst also making them lighter. Players with experience will appreciate the ability to generate explosive power with ease, whilst subtle nuances in technique can be articulated perfectly.

Those who are new to the piano will appreciate the ease with which the keys can be played, offering a lightweight and highly controllable playing feel. In addition to this, each jack has been treated to a microscopic area of surface texture, at the point where it meets the hammer. The jack is made out of carbon and polyacetal - which is far more sensitive and responsive than a traditional wooden jack – giving the player significantly greater dynamic control.

Resilient Playing Surface

The resilient key surfaces are feature acrylic/phenol, which respond beautifully during each performance, returning to its original position with impeccable timing. The keys are weighted, balanced and adjusted according to hammer size, so that an even touch and feel is assured across the keyboard. Each key-top offers a smooth surface area to play on, whilst absorbing perspiration and natural oils to prevent unwanted slipping during a performance.

The E-2 is completed in satin black, delivering a supremely decadent yet understated finish. Whether you're looking for the ideal instrument to practice and perform on at home, at your local church or school, the sophisticated styling is perfect for any setting. The wood is complemented exquisitely by the exclusive cast brass pedals, which also boast the addition of being highly resilient.


Each model is supplied with a comprehensive 10 Year Warranty. During years 1, 2, and 3, repairs will be covered on-site at the customers' home - this includes parts and labour.
