New Responsive Hammer Compact II keyboard action with triple sensor hammer detection

The KDP110 is the first Kawai digital piano to utilize the new, improved Responsive Hammer Compact II weighted key keyboard action.  The RHCII action retains the same realistic graded hammer weighting, structural rigidity, and low-noise characteristics of its highly regarded predecessor (introduced with the ES110 last year), while adding triple sensor hammer detection.  Unlike most instruments in its class that generate sounds based on key velocity, the KDP110’s realistic keyboard action design measures the velocity of the weighted hammers that are thrown when playing each key.  This preferred method reproduces the mechanism of an acoustic grand piano more accurately, and allows performers to play with a greater range of musical expression.


The RHCII action’s added third sensor improves responsiveness when playing the same key repeatedly, and unlike conventional two sensor keyboard actions found in many digital pianos, enables the sound of a single note to be gradually ‘layered’ without the previous tone being lost.  Moreover, Kawai’s action technology also monitors hammer velocity when each key is lifted, influencing the release character of piano sounds, and providing a greater range of expression between staccato and legato playing.

 

Flagship Shigeru Kawai concert grand piano reproduced with 88-key sampling

Connected to this responsive keyboard action is the rich, expressive sound of Kawai’s celebrated Shigeru Kawai SK-EX concert grand piano – widely regarded by professional pianists and piano technicians as one of the finest instruments within its class.  All 88 keys of this exceptional instrument have been meticulously recorded, analyzed and faithfully reproduced as high-fidelity digital waveforms.  Recording each key individually in this way preserves the rich harmonic character of the SK-EX concert grand piano, and guarantees that the sound heard when playing any one of the KDP110’s weighted keys is an accurate representation of the original acoustic source.


Kawai’s advanced Harmonic Imaging sound technology ensures seamless expression when playing from gentle pianissimo to thunderous fortissimo, without sudden changes in sound, while the impressive 192 note polyphony allows complicated passages that utilize the damper pedal to be enjoyed without notes ‘dropping out’ unexpectedly.

 

Bluetooth® MIDI, USB-MIDI, Built-in lessons, and enhanced headphone sound

The KDP110 offers a variety of useful features to complement its realistic weighted-key touch and authentic grand piano sounds.  Integrated Bluetooth® MIDI allows the instrument to communicate with supported smart devices, using Kawai’s Sound Museum and Virtual Technician apps to select and adjust sounds wirelessly, while the built-in lesson function (featuring a variety of classical etudes and Alfred songs), adjustable metronome and song recorder, are invaluable tools for aspiring pianists.  An assortment of additional instrumental voices, combined with the Dual playing mode adds greater variety to players’ performances, while the special Four Hands mode divides the keyboard into two independent sections, allowing teacher and student to practice and play together using a single instrument.


The KDP110 features an upgraded amplifier and speaker system, and also includes Kawai’s advanced Spatial Headphone Sound (SHS) technology, which enhancing the depth and realism of sounds heard through headphones or earphones, while also helping to reduce auditory fatigue when listening for extended periods of time.

 

Contemporary cabinet design available in three colors

The KDP110 is housed within an attractive, compact wooden cabinet that incorporates a wide, fold-down music rest and sliding keyboard cover.  The instrument’s high quality Premium Rosewood finish with silver fittings ensures this impressive digital piano is suitable for a range of traditional and modern interiors.

Kawai KDP110 Upright Pianos


Touch. Tone. Strength. Character. Precision. Experience.
Tradition and Innovative Spirit. The essence of KDP110 Kawai


The celebrated tradition and technology that supports the sounds and remarkable distinctive tonal character produced by the KDP110 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.

Purity of Tone that Fills the Room... The Shigeru Kawai SK-EXL Concert Grand Piano is widely regarded by professional pianists and piano technicians as one of the finest instruments in the world. Hand-built over many months by Master Piano Artisans at the Shigeru Kawai Piano Research Laboratory in Ryuyo, Japan, each SK-EXL Concert Grand undergoes a through regulation and refinement process in a specially-designed anechoic chamber. Following this lengthy crafting process, the completed SK-EXL Piano receives a final series of rigorous quality inspections before eventually taking center stage in the world’s most prestigious musical institutions and concert halls.

88-Key Piano Sampling - The beautiful sound of the Shigeru Kawai SK-EXL Concert Grand Piano is at the heart of the CP Concert Performer Digital Series Sound, with all 88 keys of this world-class instrument painstakingly recorded, carefully analyzed and accurately reproduced as high-fidelity digital audio. Recording each key individually in this way (rather than stretching the same tone over several different notes) preserves the rich harmonic character of the SK-EXL Concert Grand Piano and guarantees that the sound heard when playing any of the Concert Performer’s keys is a faithful representation of the original acoustic source.

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 KDP110 piano action to transfer energy with unparalleled efficiency, power, precision and nuance for a superb playing experience, for increased tone production that will last over time better than any other piano.


A Rare Treasure… A limited number of all Kawai instruments will ever bear the name KDP110. The rigorous degree of work and technology keeps these instruments rare in both character and quantity. Each KDP110 piano is a limited edition treasure numbered by year of creation.
