The ultimate in digital piano innovation

Building on the superb Concert Artist series, the Kawai CA97 is the top of the range model from Kawai for 2015. Unparalleled digital piano samples, a total of 80 premium sounds and an integrated soundboard system are simply the tip of the iceberg.

The latest in touch technology

To ensure that your playing experience is equal to that of an acoustic grand, Kawai have included their Grand Feel II wooden-key action with ebony and ivory touch key surfaces and ‘Let-Off’ mechanism. All 88 notes on the CA97 are crafted from long pieces of wood with the pivot point distance matching that of a Kawai grand piano. Each key throws up a micro-engineered hammer to trigger a note and each hammer is graded in size and weight to match the heavier bass notes and lighter treble notes that you would find on an acoustic piano.

Harmonic Imaging XL

The Kawai CA97 comes with not just one 88-key sampled grand piano, but 3! The Shigeru Kawai EX, Kawai EX and Shigeru Kawai SK-5 have all been painstakingly captured by audio engineers. These superb piano's have been chosen for events such as the Chopin, Tchaikovsky, and Rubinstein international piano competitions on the strength of their sound and feel, and this has been captured for your enjoyment.

Variety is the spice of life and the CA97 contains a collection of 80 premium sounds for you to perform with. Electric pianos and draw-bar and church organs, to strings, human choirs, and even atmospheric synth-style pads are all available through easy navigation of the top panel and 128 x 64 pixel LCD screen compete with back-light.

Further to this, you have all the wonderful benefits that digital piano's bring such as dual playing mode to layer sounds on top of each other such as piano and strings. The CA97 includes split and four hands mode making it ideal for a teacher/student situation, or for those wishing to play a different sound with each hand.

Virtual technician

Either to appease acoustics, or just as a matter of taste, you may want to tweak the piano sounds in the CA97. For this, Kawai have included a virtual technician. This feature gives you the ability to change voicing and regulation, string, damper, cabinet resonances, and subtle hammer, damper, and key release noises. Your desired sound can then be stored for later use.


The CA97 utilises an integrated soundboard system to give you powerful, yet natural projection of the sound within. This is also replicated when using headphones thanks to Kawai's SHS headphone system, ensuring that you keep that vibrant and spacious sound when silent practice may be required.

Capable connectivity

We live in a connected world, why should your digital piano be any different? The CA97 has USB connectivity for audio playback and recording, (both WAV and MP3 capability) to capture your performances and store them for instant recall when required.

You can also connect the CA97 to your PC or Mac for use with your favourite software. You can even have standard MIDI files (SMF) downloaded from the internet to be played back without additional hardware, ideal for background music at social events.

The Kawai CA97 houses innovation within elegance. A digital piano for professionals, learners, in the home or on the stage.
