In 1927, Kawai was originally founded by Koichi Kawai as a musical instruments research laboratory. Research and development are central to the Kawai company culture and their singular focus on pianos has resulted in the perfect blending of digital and acoustic pianos.
Of all the makers of digital keyboard instruments, Kawai is the only company that only makes pianos. This singular focus has made them a leader in the industry and one of the most award winning digital piano lines in the world. Kawai concentrates on the fundamentals of touch and tone, consistently delivering better value and performance in every price range.
Kawai has been a pioneer in hybrid technology, blending acoustic piano parts with digital sound production. Today, Kawai offers more wood-keyboard digitals than any other manufacturer, demonstrating their commitment to accurately reproducing correct piano technique on a digital piano.
