Kawai K-15 44" Continental Upright Piano
The K-15 provides an excellent introduction upright pianos -- and to Kawai quality! Featuring a solid spruce soundboard and the highly regarded Ultra Responsive action with ABS parts, this continental-style instrument produces a rich, clear tone with performance qualities to rival much larger upright pianos.
The K15 features the Kawai Ultra-Responsive direct blow action with sycamore/maple hammer shanks and 100% wool felt hammer heads -- all to provide the player an extraordinary touch and feel. To make the action resistant to climatic and seasonal changes in temperature and humidity, Kawai uses aluminum action rails, aluminum hammer rest rails and precision parts made of extremely stable, low-friction ABS Styran Carbon Fiber. Over time, these materials will keep the piano's touch sturdier than a traditional all-wood construction would.
The most important sound-producing part of a piano is the soundboard. And thankfully, the K-15 features a finely-selected spruce construction which results in an outstanding dynamic range and superb tone throughout the piano's different registers. Its exceptionally large soundboard area also gives the instrument a greater tonal power and resonance, and the entire thing is safely supported by 5 laminated back posts and 9 cross-grain ribs.
The construction of the K-15 itself is sturdy, and it provides the foundation for outstanding tone, playability and durability. So that the cast iron plate can handle the 20 tons of string tension present in upright pianos, Kawai uses state-of-the-art CAD technology to align natural tonal resonances of the plate with the build requirements of the scale design. The pinblock is made from high-end hard rock maple and utilizes machine-cut threads and reverse-torque tuning pins for decades of reliable longer-lasting tunings.
Made with permanently bonded brass over a die-cast aluminum core, Kawai Cast Brass Pedals are significantly stronger and more durable than commonly-used "capped" pedals. The center pedal activates the mute rail for quiet practice playing. And inside, Kawai uses square-tube steel levers for the pedals which are stronger than traditional round levers. Furthermore, this square design provides flat surfaces for the pedal rod and pivot bushings -- making for less noisy pedals.
With attractive continental styling and compact design, the K15 is very suitable for today's modern living environments. The piano is available in three polished finishes: Ebony, Mahogany and Snow White. The simplicity of the cabinet's design and the beautiful high gloss polyester resin finish make for a very sophisticated instrument that plays as good as it looks.
Offering impressive specifications at an affordable price, the K-15 represents an exceptional introduction to Kawai quality for families and first-time piano buyers. It is a good-sounding and reliable instrument in a size that's much more convenient than a grand piano's. Especially for developing pianists, it offers everything you'll need to grow as a musician.
