4 YEAR EXTENDED WARRANTY SCHEME

The product price includes 2 years' warranty and 30 day money back guarantee.

However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 4 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 60 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first 2 years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 4 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

Kawai

Established in 1927, Kawai is now one of the largest music manufacturers in the world. Kawai focus only on creating high quality acoustic and digital pianos and have produced some of the most famous concert grand pianos in the world, such as the Shigeru Kawai EX and Shigeru Kawai SK-5. In creating their range of digital pianos, Kawai make use of this expertise to replicate as closely as possible the experience of playing an acoustic grand piano. Kawai pioneered the use of wooden key components in digital pianos and continue to innovate for an ever more authentic piano playing experience.

Soundboard Speaker System for Authentic Natural Tones

The Kawai CA97 Hybrid Digital Piano is built using an authentic wooden soundboard, which channels your sound through the entire instrument. This unique Soundboard Speaker System provides the CA97 with an exceptionally rich and vibrant tone, with the same resonance and tonal ambience as a true acoustic piano.

Virtual Technician Sound Customisation

The Concert Artist CA97 also features Kawai's innovative Virtual Technician technology, which allows you to shape the tonal characteristics of your sound to suit your needs. This feature offers various adjustable settings including voicing and regulation; string, damper and cabinet resonances; subtle hammer, damper and key release noises, and even the precise tuning and volume of individual notes. With the ability to store personalised configurations to memory, the Virtual Technician feature enables you to customise your instrument's character to achieve the piano sound you've always dreamed of.

Dynamic Response with Grand Feel II Wooden Key Action

The CA97 utilises Kawai's Grand Feel II wooden-key keyboard action, which emulates the distinctive smooth and responsive feel of playing a real acoustic grand piano. Crafted from long pieces of wood pivoting on a central balance pin, each of the CA97's keys throws a metal hammer when pressed, much like the action of a genuine acoustic piano. The hammers are all carefully micro-engineered to ensure perfect balance, and are graded in size and weight to provide a heavier response on the bass notes and a lighter touch at the treble end. The CA97 features triple-sensor technology, which accurately measures the forward and backward movements of each hammer for a supremely realistic playing experience.

Three Iconic Piano Sounds with Harmonic Imaging™ XL Sampling

The Kawai CA97 faithfully reproduces the sound of three world-class grand pianos: the acclaimed Kawai EX concert grand, Shigeru Kawai SK-5 medium-sized grand, and Kawai's flagship Shigeru Kawai SK-EX full concert grand. All three instruments have been expertly recorded and sampled using the latest Harmonic Imaging™ XL sound technology, allowing you to enjoy the incredible dynamic range and expressiveness of a professional quality grand piano in the comfort of your own home.

Kawai 5 Year Warranty

As an expression of the confidence Kawai have in the design and manufacturing of their instruments, they offer a 5-year warranty for parts and labour with all their newly released digital pianos (only available in the UK).

Delivery Options

Standard Courier Delivery

When you add this product to your shopping basket, you will be provided with our standard courier delivery option. This will deliver the piano to the ground floor of your house or building. Please note that if there is not a ground floor entrance we may not be able to deliver there. You may also need to help the delivery driver as this product comes packaged in large boxes.

This option may not be suitable if you are unable to help the driver if required, or if you need the piano delivering upstairs. Please consider whether this is the most appropriate delivery service for you, as other delivery options are available at an additional cost.

2 Man Delivery Service

If you select this option, two delivery personnel will deliver the piano boxes to any ground floor room of your choice, rather than just your front door. Please note that this service will take a few days longer than the standard courier service and the courier company will call you to arrange a convenient delivery date after you have placed the order.

If you would prefer a delivery and installation service please contact our sales team on 0843 515 0600 who will be happy to set up a quotation for you.
