Why Choose Kawai Pianos?

Updated: Apr 9, 2021

When shopping for a new piano you may be tempted by other name brands you're familiar with like Yamaha, Steinway, or Baldwin. And in all fairness, those other manufacturers produce great pianos that have made many people happy over the years.


So if there are so many other good pianos to choose from, then why choose a Kawai?


For over 90 years Kawai has been a pioneer in modern piano design. Their instruments are made using cutting-edge technologies and high-quality materials, resulting in some of the best-playing pianos seen at home and on-stage. Here we'll be going over a few reasons why it might be in your best interest to get a Kawai piano.


The Kawai Name



Kawai pianos are carefully crafted in Japan, and they brandish the family name of the founder Koichi Kawai. The Kawai family has been running the company ever since 1927, and the simple use of their family name is pretty significant in and of itself.


They aren't hiding behind a brand. They're literally putting their family name on the line. It's a statement that these are instruments the family is proud of, and they happily share their name and their passion for music with anyone and everyone.



Superior Touch



Open the lid to any Kawai piano and you'll find a highly innovative system inside. The action mechanism (or simply the action) is made up of highly-durable, precision-made parts. The brackets and railing hold everything together and provide long-term strength and stability to the action. The jacks (the part of the action responsible for moving the hammers inside) are made from carbon fiber which is many times stronger than wood and is virtually impervious to swelling and shrinking from humidity.


What this all gives you is a piano with extremely consistent and precise action, allowing you as a musician to play with complex levels of emotion and artistry.


The feel and touch of the piano is one thing. How the piano actually sounds is another...
