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.

The 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 K-300 Piano. 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 permanently crowned soundboards made of only straight-grained, quarter-sawn solid spruce, with bridges made of solid maple, are carefully set and matched to the iron plate for correct string pressure and optimal enhanced energy transfer, which empowers the K-300 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 K-300 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.
