Grand Feel Compact Keyboard
Setting standards in the industry. The Kawai CA48 features the latest keyboard design and action. Combining realistic materials, motion and mechanisms, the CA48 recreates the exceptional touch of the finest concert grand pianos. With extended pivot length, the key action serves you a realistic acoustic grand feel. With triple sensors and improved hammer trigger mechanisms, the upright piano offers more consistency and durability. In addition, Kawai's triple-senor key detection system allows you to repeat notes (such as trills) and yet produce a smooth and natural sound. Altogether, the new and improved design technology by Kawai pushes the CA48 to the top of its class. Rivalling even their grand pianos!
Kawai's Flagship Grand Piano
The flagship. With the CA48 you can bring the grand concert sound home to you! The Shigeru Kawai SK-EX and EX have been faithfully sampled to reproduce a rich and realistic concert sound. Engineered with the sonic capabilities of a world-class grand piano, the CA48 digital piano is carefully made to serve you an incredible playing experience.
An Elegant Modern Design
The CA48 embodies a sleek, satin cabinet, with a flat fascia and raised upper board for a classic upright feel. The broad music rest has been especially designed to accommodate larger scores, with a high quality surface. Adjusting the angle of the music rest couldn't be easier, as it can be adjusted to suit the player's preferred position. It can also be laid flat, which is ideal for making notes and composing. The distinctive KAWAI logo, representing over 90 years of acoustic piano crafting excellence, adorns the CA48’s fallboard. Its metallic finish glimmers in the light, capturing the graceful movements of the player’s hands below.
A 5-Year European 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 digital pianos. Within the first two years, which is covered by Gear4music, simply contact our Customer Services team on 0330 365 444 and we will organise the repair/replacement, subject to issue. Kawai will honour any manufacturing defects after this two year period subject to completing the warranty information which will be enclosed with your piano and Kawai will organise the repair/replacement as deemed necessary.
