Unmistakable quality and style. The Kawai CN29 digital piano in satin black has everything you need to progress as a pianist - all within an elegant cabinet. Thanks to Kawai raising the bar in digital piano technology, the CN29 has set a new standard for affordable upright pianos.
At the heart of the CN29 are the rich and expressive sounds of the SK-EX and EX concert grand pianos. These pianos were painstakingly recorded and accurately reproduced as digital signals to guarantee you hear the preserved harmonics and character. When you combine these sounds with Kawai's class-leading Responsive Hammer III keyboard action which recreates the touch of a grand piano, then you will realise why the CN29 is so good.
To ensure that your new piano sounds brilliant all time, Kawai have incorporated their Superior Headphone Sound technology into the CN29. Not only does this enhance your playing experience while using headphones, but also reduces auditory fatigue when playing for long periods. You can even change the acoustic presets with the new OLED screen.

Thanks to Kawai's class-leading Responsive Hammer III keyboard action, you can now experience the supreme touch of an acoustic grand piano. With its realistic movement and rigid, springless design, you will never look back at your old piano again. Kawai's attention to detail has resulted in structural noise and key wobble being kept do a minimum, even during staccato and fortissimo passages.
Similar to all of Kawai's pianos, the CN29's keyboard has been weighted to mirror the heavier bass hammers and lighter treble hammers of an acoustic piano. For additional realism, the CN29 features counterweights which have been embedded within each key. These balanced weights will lighten the touch of the keys during gentle passages, while adding a greater feel of grandeur when playing with power. The CN29 even features let-off simulations which recreates the subtle notch felt when playing the keys of a grand piano.
To ensure you have the best possible experience, the sounds of the SK-EX and EX have been placed into the heart of the CN29. These Shigeru Kawai instruments can be found in the most prestigious concert halls and musical institutions throughout the world, and are recognised for their outstanding tonal clarity and exceptional dynamic range. Professional pianists often select these pianos for prestigious events such as the Chopin, Tchaikovsky, and Rubinstein international piano competitions, among others. Now you can play on a Shigeru Kawai.
All 88 keys of the SK-EX and EX concert grand pianos were painstakingly recorded, then accurately reproduced as high-fidelity digital waveforms. Unlike other piano manufacturers, Kawai records each note individually to preserve the grand pianos' unique harmonic character. This way, you always get an accurate representation of the original instruments.
Kawai's collaboration with audio company Onkyo ensures the CN29 has impressive tonal depth. By using premium components to deliver professional level audio, the CN29 can produce an extremely clear sound with minimal distortion. Onkyo have used their unrivalled knowledge of audio components to ensure a high-fidelity sound with minimal distortion. Even the speakers in the CN29 were designed to produce a flat frequency response to guarantee accurate reproduction of the Kawai SK-EX grand piano.
If you wish to manipulate the sound to your own personal preference, the CN29's Virtual Technician will enable you to refine even the smallest details. In "Smart Mode" you can pick from ten presets that intelligently adjust various characteristics of the grand pianos to match different musical styles. In "Advanced Mode" you can perform touch weight and voicing adjustments, regulate hammer and key release noises, and fine-tune string and damper resonances using the dedicated Virtual Technician iPad app.
Learning made easy. The CN29 offers a convenient way to learn and practise the piano - no matter your level. With the Lesson Function, you can control your learning. Equipped with a great selection of built-in etudes, piece, and practise songs, you can play along and practise at your own pace.
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.
