The 53″ K-800 is the epitome of upright piano craftsmanship.
Its elegant form and exceptional tone will fulfill the needs of any professional teaching studio or intimate performance setting. This formable acoustic piano features an ABS action with parts resistant to humidity and stress, as well as T stapled Hammers which create the optimal curve and angle of wool to strike the string, this creates and exceptional tone for an upright piano and even more so with the huge string length on this instrument. Also, the keys themselves feature a Note composite which mimics Ivory keys for added grip.
The furniture design of the piano is great for students and professionals as the music rest extends a full 40 inches above the keys, giving lots of room for books, extended pieces, or ballads with 8+ pages. The keys themselves are also longer and feel as if you are playing a grand piano with precision balance and attack when played. Often piano keys can stick as the keyslip (the wood below the keys swells or warps from the environment or repeated stress, on the Kawai uprights, there is a steel reinforced plate which keeps this space clear and prevents sticking keys for the life of the piano. Feel free to demo this piano in our 30,000 square foot showroom featuring 30′ ceilings and exposed brick walls that maximize acoustics.
