Kawai CR-40 Grand Pianos


Touch. Tone. Strength. Character. Precision. Experience.
Tradition and Innovative Spirit. The essence of CR-40 Kawai


The celebrated tradition and technology that supports the sounds and remarkable distinctive tonal character produced by the CR-40 Kawai are created by the craftsmen who dedicate their lives to building the world’s finest and most advanced pianos empowered with life, breadth and depth that lasts for generations.

Every single step, each intricately detailed design, is performed by our craftsmen drawing upon their years of experience to achieve their relentless pursuit of perfection. It’s this good, old-fashioned care and great individual pride that enables Kawai pianos to attract the greatest musicians from around the world.
 
For over 90 years, Kawai has been the architect of the modern piano boldly pioneering the use of state-of-the-art materials and ideas to advance the piano art form. Building upon decades of experience and tradition, our celebrated technology delivers extraordinary touch and tone that produces lasting enjoyment and peak performance.

In the Shigeru Kawai Research and Development Laboratory in Japan, the Shigeru Kawai renowned Master Piano Artisans patiently craft one of the world’s finest musical instruments scale design—the CR-40 Professional Grand Piano. Combining time-tested methods of origin with today's most sophisticated piano design tools each CR-40 Piano is conceived as a “next step” in the evolving art of the piano. The scarcity of materials used and the painstaking attention devoted to each CR-40 Professional Piano make these instruments rare indeed. A limited number are crafted each year for all the world. But to truly understand the CR-40 is to play it. Only then, in its transcendent tone and incomparable touch, will you fully sense the passion, the devotion... the tradition and innovative spirit of Kawai.
The Kawai Master Piano Artisans... The Kawai CR-40 piano is perfected by an elite brand of artisan craftsman. Each Kawai Master Piano artisans is at the pinnacle of his profession. The love of music-making runs deep in those who pursue the esteemed rank of Kawai Master Piano Artisan. With remarkable skills each artisan brings a seasoned wealth of experience and passion to his craft. Applying his own unique musical personality, the artisan transforms each Kawai CR-40 Professional Grand Piano into a distinctive work of art, ready to discover its true and lasting voice at hands of the artist.
Purity of Tone that Fills the Room... In order to produce Kawai’s special tone, a broad range of woods are meticulously analyzed for quality and character, before being selected as the finest materials for each specific purpose. The soundboard has arguably the most significant influence over a piano’s individual tonal elements. Therefore, woods that conform to the most rigorous gravity and propagation velocity standards are carefully selected by experienced Kawai Artisan Craftsmen in order to achieve rich, deep bass tones, and bright, colorful, sustaining treble tones.

Tradition and technology are indispensable elements of piano tone. Tradition lays the foundation for Kawai’s distinctive tonal character. The first hallmark of the CR-40 Grand is the blend of distinctive hardwoods to achieve an ideal balance of tone. Small-pore hardwoods that provide superior brightness and projection are interlaminated with dense, large-pore hardwoods offering warmth and fullness.

This synergy of the selection of the finest structurally divergent hardwoods produces a powerful, well-rounded richness of extraordinary tone that is the hallmark of the CR-40 Series. This focus creates an incredibly strong “core” foundation that maximizes the reflective capabilities of the inner rim for outstanding tonal power and sustain. Select precision tapered permanently crowned soundboards made of only straight-grained, quarter-sawn solid spruce with vertically laminated continuous treble and bass bridges, with solid maple cap for enhanced energy transfer, empower the CR-40 with exceptional energy transmission and tonal projection for life, breadth, and depth of extraordinary tone that lasts from generation to generation.

Touch Texture. Responsive Fast Action.
Beautiful Quality of ‘Singing Strings’. Brilliant Rich Harmonics and Depth.

 

Playing the piano is as much an experience of "touch" as it is of tone. Day after day, the musician's hands come in contact with the piano keys. The piano's responsiveness can make a critical difference that can affect the player's performance, confidence and overall playing enjoyment. Consistent, ultra-responsive touch is a Kawai tradition.

 

The extraordinary combination of strength and stability allows the CR-40 piano action to transfer energy to the underfelted hammers with unparalleled efficiency, power, precision and nuance for a superb playing experience, leaving more energy in the strings for increased tone production that will last over time better than any other piano.

 

Dual Duplex Scaling is an important design element that helps to make possible the beautiful singing quality of the Kawai GX CR-40 Series Grand Pianos. Duplex Scaling allows the extreme ends of the piano’s strings to vibrate and produce harmonics that enhance tone. Dual Duplex design combines a front duplex region (between the tuning pins and Agraffes) with a similar rear duplex region (between the Aliquots and the Bridge) to add a double measure of harmonic richness, brilliance, complexity and sustain to the piano’s tone.

A Rare Treasure… A limited number of all Kawai instruments will ever bear the name CR-40. The rigorous degree of handwork and use of specially chosen materials keeps these instruments rare in both character and quantity. Each CR-40 piano is a limited edition treasure numbered by year of creation.
