With a combination of 88 grade-weighted keys providing a realistic touch and authentic piano sound technologies, along with a lightweight design (just 15kg) and affordability, the Kawai ES100 Stage Piano is the perfect piano for beginners or as a second piano for professionals. Beginners will also be drawn to the Kawai ES100 for its built-in lesson function with metronome, adjustable tempo and song recorder, while the additional instrument voices, Dual and Split playing modes and 100 drum rhythms will be enjoyed by all.

The Kawai ES100 Stage Piano employs the manufacturer’s Advanced Hammer Action IV-F (AHA IV-F) to offer the touch of an acoustic grand. To offer the smooth experience of playing an acoustic piano this technology provides a springless action and sturdy feel to give consistency to each key’s motion. The hammer action has been coupled with realistic piano key weighting, to give a heavier feel to the bass hammers, and a lighter feel to the trebles, to give s truer feel to the playing experience.


Giving you an acoustic piano sound to match the feel of the keys, the Kawai ES100 Stage Piano uses advanced Harmonic Imaging technology to reproduce the rich sound of Kawai’s acclaimed concert grand piano. Each key of this exceptional instrument has been fully analysed and recorded to be accurately recreated in the Kawai ES100, something it does faithfully; to offer the same broad dynamic range and expressiveness, from soft pianissimo to strong fortissimo.

In addition to offering the sound of a concert grand, the Kawai ES100 Stage Piano also offers reverb effects, to give your sound the acoustic feel of varying environments, such as a concert hall, live stage, or recital room. There are also extended settings to adjust voicing, sympathetic resonance, and other acoustic characteristics.

Each of these components combined gives the player a rich, authentic tone, with the piano feel to back it up.

Additional Sounds

If you want to play around a bit more with your piano’s sounds, the Kawai ES100 Stage Piano delivers with a range of instruments, including: electric pianos, organs, strings, acoustic and electric bass, harpsichord, and vibraphone.

What’s more with the Kawai ES100’s Dual and Split playing modes you can split the keyboard in two and apply different sounds to each side, e.g. an acoustic piano on the left and strings on the right, allowing for a more complex sound.

Built-in Lessons, Metronome and Adjustable Tempo

An excellent addition for beginners, the Kawai ES100 Stage Piano comes supplied with a built-in lesson function, with a collection of Burgmüller etudes and Alfred Basic Piano lessons, from the popular course books. This addition allows you to learn the left hand and right hand parts of etudes or songs separately to build up confidence and also helps with timing and rhythm with the built-in metronome and adjustable tempo.


Starting on 1st October 2014, a comprehensive 5 Year Warranty will be included with this product. During years 1, 2, and 3, repairs will be covered on-site at the customers' home - this includes parts and labour.

Customer Reviews
Lovely sounding piano
Posted on 05/04/2016 by PollyM I'm a first time owner of a digital piano having owned an acoustic one all my life. The sound is really good and the 5 different piano "voices" are great, there is a subtle difference between each one. The sound quality through the headphones is also very good. It's fairly compact, a little heavy to carry around on your own but could be done if needed. I bought mine as i don't have room for a full acoustic in my flat. I really like the record function, let's me practice duets!

Minor annoyances, I don't like the artificial "fall back" noise of the keys or the "damper noise" of the pedal. You can turn these off easily, but they reset each time the piano is switched off. Meaning you have to turn them off every time you play. Only a minor grievance though. Overall i'm very pleased with this product and the excellent customer service received from Dawsons.
Fantastic piano
Posted on 09/02/2015 by Chris Llandudno After owning a Yamaha U1 and then a Roland RD300GX I purchased this piano several months ago as I wanted something light to transport around with me. It ticks all the boxes, the action is far superior than any other digital I've played, and the piano tone is very warm and rich, pretty much what you would expect from a Kawai grand. You can also add reverb and hammer fall back noise, alter the brightness etc.. it's a simple to operate piano and if you are looking for a digital with a fantastic Acton and sound then this is the one to go for, especially at this price point. I must also mention that the staff in the Chester store are fantastic!!
