The Kawai EX concert grand piano is widely regarded by professional pianists and piano technicians as one of the finest instruments within its class. Hand-built by Master Piano Artisans at the Shigeru Kawai Piano Research Laboratory in Ryuyo, Japan, each EX instrument undergoes a meticulous regulation and refinement process within a specially designed anechoic chamber. Following this lengthy crafting period, the completed EX concert grand piano receives a final series of rigorous quality inspections, before eventually taking centre stage in the world’s most prestigious musical institutions and concert halls.
Reinforcing the CN Series’ reputation as the most realistic digital pianos in their price range is Kawai’s Grand Feel Pedal System. This new development accurately replicates the individual weighting of the damper, soft, and sostenuto pedals of a Kawai EX Concert grand piano to further enhance acoustic piano authenticity.
An experienced piano technician is essential to fully realise the potential of a fine acoustic piano. In addition to meticulously tuning each individual note, the technician also performs numerous regulation and voicing adjustments that allow an instrument to truly sing.The CN Series’ Virtual Technician simulates these refinements digitally, allowing performers to shape various aspects of the piano’s tonal character and playability to suit their unique personal preferences, before storing favourite setups to memory for immediate recall.
With an impressive selection of GM2 instrument sounds and drum kits, and 256 note polyphony, the CN35 is capable of playing and recording multi-track SMF (Standard MIDI Format) fi les from USB with stunning realism and musicality. USB devices can also be used to play back MP3 or WAV audio files, allowing musicians to accompany their favourite artists, play along to professional ‘minus one’ backing tracks, or simply learn the chords for a new piece. It’s even possible to record and overdub performances directly as MP3/WAV audio files for emailing to family and friends, or casual listening away from the piano.
