Why Kawai?

Kawai say:

Premium Quality Solid Spruce Soundboard

The soundboard and ribs are considered the most important sound producing components of a piano, with both the materials used and the manner in which they are assembled greatly affecting volume and tonal quality. The K-15E soundboard is produced using the finest quality straight-grained spruce, carefully selected and scientifically tested to exceed KAWAI’s demanding resonance standards, ensuring exceptional dynamic range and outstanding tonal balance across the entire sound spectrum.

Excellent Touch, Superior Reliability

The K-15E features the exclusive Ultra-Responsive™ direct blow action, with selected hardwood hammer shanks and 100% wool felt hammer heads, providing an extraordinary touch and feel. To improve the action’s climatic stability, KAWAI pioneered the use of aluminium action rails, aluminium hammer rest rails and ABS action parts – addressing many of the problems associated with wooden components, such as breakage under continual high stress, and shrinking/swelling due to changes in temperature and humidity.

Contemporary Design, Attractive Price

In addition to the exceptionally large solid spruce soundboard, the K-15E also utilises four fully laminated back posts, delivering optimum rigidity and enhanced tuning stability. With attractive ‘continental’ styling and compact design, the K-15E is a contemporary instrument suitable for today’s modern living environments. Offering impressive specifications at an affordable price, this instrument represents an exceptional introduction to KAWAI quality for families and first-time piano buyers. "

What is ATX-3?

Please note - The K15EATX-3 model does not come with the LCD Touch Screen. It has a basic control system under the keyboard on the left-hand side instead. 

The silent side of this piano is ideal for families with young children or night owls looking to practice late into the night.

The most common question regarding the silent piano is "is this a digital piano?".

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.

The main features of the new ATX3 system are:

  • Integrated Hammer sensing system (IHSS) - There are optical sensors on the hammers which accurately capture the movements to give a realistic and highly responsive sound when in silent form. 
  • 5" LCD Colour Touch screen - Embedded into the left-hand side of the keyboard, this screen is extremely user friendly and very straight forward to operate.
