CA48 is the most accessible model of the Concert Artist family ever developed up to now and successor of the famous CA17.
This model features the new Gran Feel Compact woodworking, incorporates new Shigeru Kawai SK-EX and concert Kawai EX stamps, integrates the Bluetooth® system for wireless connection, offers a powerful 4-speaker amplification system, listening in SHS headphones and the cabint with a modernized design. All these innovations make it qualitatively extraordinary while keeping an affordable price.
Grand Feel Compact the GF compact was conceived to reproduce the touch characteristics of the Gran Feel mechanics in a more contained form. In spite of a smaller size, the GF Compact has a longer pivot length, ensuring a more precise and consistent touch when you play at the top of the button.
Triple sensor The triple sensor improves the response when you repeatedly press the same key, and allows you to gradually overlay the sound of a single note without the previous one being lost. In addition, the Kawai mechanical technology controls the speed at which the key is raised. These unique features influence the character of the release of the piano sound, offering a wider range of details between detached and legato. The RH II and Grand feel mechanics detect the movement of the key with three sensors instead of two, as was the case in previous systems. The third sensor increases the accuracy of the repeated notes, because it allows to superimpose the sound of the note that is ending with that of the next one.
Ivory Touch The material that constitutes it is similar to traditional ivory to the eye and above all to the contact. Its roughness and sweat absorption characteristics, optimal for the pianist, not only determine the pleasantness to the touch but above all - preventing the sliding of the fingers on the keys - favor fast executions.
Bluetooth connectivity Once paired with a mobile phone, tablet, or computer, you can expand the functionality of the instruments with a wide range of music applications. A dedicated Kawai Virtual Technician control application is available free of charge, to know and adjust the various acoustic characteristics in an entertaining way, from an attractive touch interface, without the need for adapters or cables. Bluetooth connectivity also allows you to perform classic MIDI functions.
PHI The sound is not only reproduced note by note: each of the 88 keys has been analyzed at different dynamic levels, from pianissimo to fortissimo, thus safeguarding the harmonic richness of the original concert grancode. With this new feature, the PHI technology provides even richer tonal details.
Adjustable Music Stand Adjustable Music Stand (3 positions)
Virtual Technician via iPad The Virtual Technician iPad app for iPad (downloadable from iTunes store: Virtual-technician), allows you to customize every aspect of the piano from the touch interface in a much simpler and clearer way. It's possible to connect the iPad via cable, through camera connection kit, or wireless via bluetooth (with the models that support it)
Grand Feel pedal system Replicates the individual weight of the forte, piano and tonal pedals of a Kawai EX concert grand piano to further enhance the authenticity of acoustic piano.
