Now through the end of February 2011, Kawai is offering instant rebates of up to $1,500 on selected upright, grand, and digital pianos. As their slogan says, “Someday is today. Eventually is now.” If you’ve been thinking about buying a piano, especially a Kawai, why not save some money in the process? (But hurry in, this offer ends February 28, 2011.)
2011 is an important year for Kawai as they mark 40 years of leadership in the use of composite materials for their acoustic pianos. Kawai is one of the world’s biggest piano makers and is a pioneer in piano manufacturing. Since their introduction in 1971, Kawai upright pianos began to have action parts made of a very durable material called ABS. In the 1960’s, Kawai’s craftsmen found that wood action parts had a tendency to shrink and swell with climate changes, which could cause parts to shift position or become loose, undermining the touch, tone, and playability of the piano. These issues could be treated with regulation by a piano technician, but might return when the weather changed. Kawai decided to look for alternative materials, which led them to ABS. The ABS actions in Kawai pianos give them greater tuning stability, touch, and tone, especially over time.
Another reason to celebrate Kawai is their award-winning 48” K-3 studio upright. With the K-3’s incomparable combination of tone, touch and value, for the third year in a row (2010, 2009, 2008), it was selected as the “Acoustic Piano of the Year” by the readers of MMR Magazine. Come in and experience the K-3 so you can understand why it is one of the best-selling upright pianos available today.
