The Kawai K-200 upright acoustic piano in snow white, has been built by a company who has developed a reputation for building affordable instruments to an exceptionally high standard of quality. Established in the 1920s, Kawai has remained true in their quest for excellence, integrating sophisticated machine manufacturing processes alongside elegant hand-finished appointments.
Taking ABS a step further, Kawai combined it with carbon fibre to create ABS-Carbon, a composite that not only increases the strength of the parts within the piano - reportedly 90% stronger than traditional wooden parts -, but it also had the added bonus of making them lighter. Therefore, explosive power is increased, and deft technique can be executed with minimal effort - this is Kawai’s Millennium Action III technology. 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.
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 K-200. 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 K-200 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.
The K-200 is completed in snow white polish would make an excellent addition to any home, classroom or teaching studio. This delightful piano has been specially designed and developed to exceed the performance requirements and expectations of even the most discerning of pianists.
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.
