Kawai CA97 Digital Piano


kawai ca97 digital piano

The CA97 digital piano captures the magnificent tone of Kawai’s flagship Shigeru Kawai SK-EX full concert, and Shigeru Kawai SK-5 medium-sized grand pianos. Widely regarded as the ‘premier pianos of Japan’, Shigeru Kawai instruments grace the stages of concert halls and musical institutions throughout the world, and are prized for their exceptional tonal clarity. In addition, the CA97 also features the distinctive sound of Kawai’s highly acclaimed EX concert grand piano, which has frequently been selected by professional pianists in such prestigious events as the Chopin, Tchaikovsky, and Rubinstein international piano competitions, among others. All three instruments have been carefully recorded, meticulously analysed, and faithfully reproduced with full 88-key sampling using the latest Harmonic Imaging™ XL 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.
