The Kawai CN29 is as close as it gets to a faithful recreation of a acoustic piano. The sleek lines and lightweight nature make the CN29 preferable to the weight awkwardness of a regular acoustic piano. It includes a headphone jack for private practise, so you don't have to disturb family or friends. The Kawai CN29 is packed with features that suit a range of abilities including the concert ready pianist to the non-player. Whether you are on the road to becoming a better piano player or already accomplished the Kawai CN29 is the perfect digital piano for you.
The RHIII hammer action keys are responsive, weighted and give one of the most authentic playing experiences a digital piano can give. The ivory textured keys married to the 3-sensor technology respond in the same manner an acoustic grand would.
The keys are weighted in accordance with their respective register, lower keys who would have a heavier hammer action are weighted heavier than their light higher register brethren. The ivory touch key surfaces gently absorb finger moisture to maintain key consistency and has "let off" simulation to replicate the notch feel of acoustic keys.
The Kawai CN29 captures the sound of Kawai's flagship Shigeru SK-EX full concert grand piano and Kawai's EX grand piano. These pianos are widely regarded as some of the best in the world. All 88 keys of the grand pianos have been meticulously recorded using Harmonic Imaging™ 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.
There is also a great deal of sound customisation using smart mode and via the virtual technician app where the player can tweak elements of the recorded pianos to suit their style of playing. These include adjustments to key response and pedal response.
Learn, practise & record
The Kawai CN29 features songs from the well-loved Alfred books and songs of varying difficulty to play along to, from Czerny and Bergmuller. Left and right parts can be practised independently, and the tempo can be adjusted to perfect your playing.
There is built in memory where up-to three songs can be recorded and played back, whether you want to assess your learning or simply record a piece you have written this function is an ideal way to judge where you are in terms of playing ability.
There are MIDI out jacks for interaction with other devices and Bluetooth MIDI for use with mobile devices to extend further the players experience using other digital music apps. Spatial Headphone Sound (SHS) enhances the players experience when using headphones, increasing the quality and resonance while also minimising auditory fatigue of long sessions with the headphones.
The pedal construction is similar to an acoustic grand and is solidly built. This new development accurately replicates the position and individual weighting of the damper, soft, and sostenuto pedals of a Shigeru Kawai SK-EX concert grand piano to further enhance playing authenticity. The Kawai CN29 is one of the finest recreations of some of the worlds best loved grand pianos with a plethora of other options. This piano is perfect for beginners looking to consolidate their learning long term or experienced players looking for one of the best sounding digital pianos at this price range.
