Kawai K500 Upright Piano



K Series upright piano by Kawai model K500 in black polyester.

The K500 is a fully Japanese made acoustic piano.

At 130cm, this instrument has an excellent dynamic range and bigger-bodied bass than the very popular K300 and benefits from Neotex keytops and duplex scaling to give a more complex sound particularly in the treble. The ‘Millenium III’ action is also very responsive.

All Kawai pianos are available with the new ATX3 silent system or their new Aures soundboard speaker system.

Our range of silent pianos are all completely acoustic instruments; meaning that hammers are still striking strings to produce a sound and therefore have the benefit of playing a real acoustic piano, however, they also have a digital component that simply allows players the option to switch to a digital sound for "silent playing" via headphones.

Why Kawai?

From the Manufacturer: 

Reliability and superior sound quality

The K Series upright pianos offer a level of tone quality and performance that rivals many grand pianos. With sturdy construction for years of reliable service, the K Series models are excellent for auditoriums, schools and other institutional settings. 

Millennium III Action featuring ABS Carbon Action Parts

The Millennium III Action features components made of ABS-Carbon, a new composite material created by the infusion of carbon into our existing ABS Styran. ABS-Carbon is incredibly sturdy and rigid, which allowed Kawai to make the action parts lighter without sacrificing strength. The lighter design makes the Millennium III Action tremendously fast and effortless for the player. The repetition and responsiveness are superb.Every exacting detail of the action was exhaustively analysed to meet the stringent demands of the skilled pianist. One prime example of this effort was the addition of a microscopic surface texture on the jack at the point where it meets the hammer. The result of this subtle but important change is a dramatic increase in control during pianissimo playing.
