The K500 upright acoustic piano from Kawai furthers bolsters their reputation for building superior instruments by combining expert craftsmanship with their pioneering research into new material technology.
Innovation on a classic
The K500 includes Kawai's NEOTEX surface, non-lead key weight adjust technology, which adds additional character to their unique Millennium III Action. This composite not only increases the strength of the parts within the piano - reportedly making them 90% stronger than traditional wooden parts - but it also had the added bonus of making them significantly lighter. This means that you can produce more explosive power with every stroke and due to the lightness of touch, you can move around the piano at lightning speeds with minimal effort. All of this contributes to the delightful playing experience and enables you to perform for a significantly longer period of time without tiring.
At the heart of the piano is an outstanding solid spruce soundboard. Each piece of spruce has been hand-selected with extreme care and must pass Kawai's rigorous testing procedure before being used in the construction of the K500. Spruce has been chosen as it has excellent resonant properties, allowing it to produce a large sound with minimum effort, allowing the soundboard to transfer the instructions from the keys with absolute precision, the utmost clarity and complete articulation.
The test of time
The resilient keys are made from a combination of acrylic and phenol responding perfectly during each performance, returning to their 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 K500 is completed in a polished black finish and 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.
