The Concert Artist flagship
Combining Kawai’s latest Grand Feel III wooden-key keyboard action, advanced SK-EX Rendering piano sound engine with multi-channel sampling and resonance modelling, premium amplification and speaker technologies powered by Onkyo, and an authentic wooden soundboard, the CA99 delivers one of the finest grand piano experiences available in a digital instrument.
A piano that will encourage enthusiastic players to become accomplished pianists, and transform living rooms into grand concert halls. This is the ambitious philosophy behind Kawai’s latest Concert Artist series – premium instruments that capture the essence of playing a magnificent concert grand piano, and inspire musicians to realise their true artistic potential.
To achieve this ambition, these first class instruments combine Kawai’s industryleading wooden key keyboard action, with an array of stunning acoustic piano sounds reproduced using premium audio and speaker technologies, and a variety of convenient, modern features that enhance one’s playing experience. The result is a series of exceptional digital pianos that deliver authenticity, performance, and reliability.
Introducing the new Concert Artist series from Kawai – feel inspired.
The keyboard action of an acoustic grand piano is comprised of black and white keys, graded hammers, and numerous other components, all working in harmony when each note is pressed. This beautifully designed mechanism allows gifted pianists to express a wealth of feeling and emotion in their music, as they respond to the tactile nuances transmitted through the keyboard.
Translating the piano action’s intricate movements to a digital instrument, while retaining these acoustic-like subtleties is an extremely challenging task. The Concert Artist’s latest Grand Feel III wooden-key keyboard action achieves this goal by drawing upon Kawai’s 90+ years of knowledge and experience in crafting the world’s finest pianos. This ensures an incredibly realistic touch feeling, and is one of the reasons for the CA99’s inspiring playability.
Embracing many of the long-established principles associated with an acoustic piano, the Grand Feel III keyboard action utilised by the latest Concert Artist instruments combines realistic materials, motion, and mechanism to recreate the touch of the fi nest concert grand pianos. All eighty-eight black and white keys are crafted entirely from long pieces of wood, rather than a plastic shell with wooden sides. Th is ensures the weight of each key is distributed evenly throughout the length of the keystick, and guarantees an effi cient transfer of movement energy when the note is struck.
