Read Kawai Reviews
Kawai could be known as jack of all trades? But master of none may be a thing of the past.
Every year I try the latest Kawai models and every year I think to myself "these pianos are getting better and better".
Lets look at a brief run down of Kawai's piano line up:
Digital pianos - Kawai make a complete range of digital pianos from beginner models, to compact space savers, right up to
professional all-singing-and-dancing instruments. My personal opinion is that Kawai digital pianos have a soft feel to the keys and the sound is
generally too bright and harsh.
Verdict: A long way to go before they start competing with Yamaha or Roland.
Upright pianos - Bright, harsh, don't like them at all. The retail prices of Kawai upright pianos are
relatively cheap, but hey! you really do get what you pay for kawai!
Grand pianos - If Kawai is doing SOMETHING right, then it would be the manufacturing of their
grand pianos. The concert grands are actually very good but the smaller baby grands still have a hint of that 'harsh' Kawai sound.
