A bit on Kawai Pianos

The imaginative spirit of Koichi Kawai, the founder, laid an ambitious foundation for all who would follow, and is the primary reason why the name Kawai has been synonymous with innovation since 1927. Always searching for new materials and technologies that can improve the tone, touch, stability or durability of a piano, Kawai has pioneered many of the piano industry’s most compelling and beneficial innovations, including aluminium action rails, slow-close fallboards, hard finish music desks and the revolutionary use of ABS composites and carbon fibre in piano actions. In its never ending quest to elevate the art of instrumental craftsmanship, Kawai continues to fulfil its calling as the future of the piano.
