Kawai Debuts New Flagship Digital Piano
Kawai America's new top-of-the-line CS11 Hybrid Digital Piano features the same gorgeous cabinet as the ones used for Kawai professional upright pianos. Classic lines, traditional leg and toe block design, plus an authentic fallboard create a timeless, traditional appearance. Its exclusive Soundboard Speaker System uses a real wooden soundboard to create the warm, rich, organic sound of an acoustic instrument. The Grand Feel II action features extra-long wooden keys and a mechanical design closely emulating that of Kawai's grand piano actions. Additionally, the front key pivot length of the GF II action is precisely the same length as that of Kawai's acclaimed RX grand piano's keys, providing a greater amount of control and nuance to the player. The CS11 relies upon Kawai's signature Harmonic Imaging XL with 88-note piano sampling. It now features samples of the acclaimed Shigeru Kawai EX concert grand and the SK5 chamber grand pianos. Other powerful digital features include USB digital audio capabilities, USB data storage, 256-note polyphony, split and layered keyboard modes, and a large number of exceptional instrumental sounds. The finishing touch is the unique Cheekblock Control System, which provides intuitive operation along with a large LCD display, all discreetly housed in the left cheekblock of the instrument.
