Little advice on Kawai finally on this site, so I'm starting.
This is a digital piano but the keys mimic well the touch of a real piano. For those who used to play on acoustic pianos, so no surprise.
Essential to study functions are immediately accessible (metronome, rhythm, play along ...), no need to book.
If you want to have fun playing with more advanced options, it is less intuitive. You must read the manual carefully to dip ... Personally, I changed a lot of things at the beginning and after 6 months of intensive research, I came back to the default settings. Like what, it is not too bad set
There are many sounds available (harpsichord, organ, bass and so on) but I only use 2/3 acoustic piano sounds are very realistic.
In this range there sounds Roland and Yamaha are also realistic, but there's really any question of taste. I hesitated a lot with Roland for me was doing a little worse in the bass notes (and very weird mechanical vibration).
There are quite a few effects, but clearly you do not buy this kind of instrument for it.
I use reverb 'default on all sounds. This too is perfect.
I've had 3/4 years, and I'm not ready to change.
- Can be really feel to play on a real piano (and it does not bother the neighbors)
- If you want to make computer music, it connects easily via USB
- It is beautiful like a piano
- The furniture is heavy and impossible to move alone.
- The pedal cable did not support the second move, but hey it is changed (thank you warranty!)
Yes I would do this choice, and if I was in the future "move upmarket", it would certainly have a Kawai because I really cracked the sound and touch.
