Grand Feel Compact Keyboard
The Kawai CA48’s keyboard action has an expressive playability in a compact design. The pivoting mechanism has been adjusted to retain the classic see-saw action without taking up excessive space. The wooden keys are linear weighted across the entire board, resulting in a consistent response. The CA48 benefits from graded hammers and counterweights to achieve a familiar feel for traditional musicians. The Grand Feel Compact’s triple sensors register the subtle nuances in your performance, whilst the let-off simulation adds subtle key noise for a more authentic sound. The Grand Feel Compact System is favoured by musicians requiring a natural feel in a more home-friendly size.
Kawai’s highly acclaimed Shigeru Kawai SK-EX and Kawai EX concert grand sounds are a prominent feature of the CA48. The SK-EX piano has the classic sound of a grand concert. The tones produced are warm with a heavy, dark reverb. This sound is suited to composers and live musicians who enjoy the complex tone of concert instruments. The Kawai EX is an established, modern sound that has been universally acclaimed by professional pianists. The piano’s 88 key sampling and Progressive Harmonic Imaging achieves precise tonal details that retain unique character.
The Virtual Technician app featured with the Kawai CA48 allows you to fine tune the sound and response to your exact preference. This app is available as a free download to your iOS or Android smart device. The Virtual Technician’s parameters include precise details such as damper noise and key-off effect, so that even the most discerning musician can achieve their tonal preference. The app’s ergonomic design is easy to navigate through, whilst the wireless connection allows you to test each setting whilst being stood in different parts of the room. The Virtual Technician allows the CA48 to be tweaked to accommodate any style.
Bluetooth MIDI, Lessons & Apps
The Kawai CA48 features integrated Bluetooth MIDI which means it can sync with smart devices for music playback or to use Kawai’s Sound Museum and Virtual Technician apps to select and adjust sounds wirelessly. The variety of lesson functions are invaluable to developing players.

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 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.

The delivery personnel will deliver the piano to a ground room floor of your choice, rather than just the front door.
