Technological updates deliver a premium playing experience.
The Kawai CA49 Digital Piano takes the legacy of authentic sound and premium features to new heights. In partnership with Onkyo, Kawai has developed new technologies to deliver richer, higher-fidelity sound in this updated model. The CA49 preserves the core Grand Feel Compact wooden key keyboard action and acoustic piano sound of Shigeru Kawai SK-EX and Kawai EX Concert Grand Pianos for an authentic playing experience. The new Low Volume Balance function allows for consistent tone at lower volume levels for practice. Sporting an updated, premium cabinet design with a taller body and rounded edges like the larger Concert Artist models, the CA49 is an impressive addition to any space. An improved cheek block control panel includes an OLED graphic display for intuitive use. As part of Kawai's award-winning Concert Artist series, the CA49 Digital Piano provides a premium piano experience for players at any level.
Authentic Grand Feel Key Action
The CA49 features Kawai's acclaimed Grand Feel Compact action with 88 graded-hammer wooden keys for a natural, responsive feel. The weight and graded action of each key has been carefully balanced to recreate the exceptional playability of a grand piano. The matte finish and texture of the keys with fingertip-grip dots further enhance control.
SK-EX and EX Concert Grand Piano Sounds
The CA49 utilizes the renowned SK-EX and EX concert grand piano sounds from Shigeru Kawai and Kawai. With 88-key sampling, the rich tone of these world-class pianos resonates through the CA49. The SK-EX was conceived by Shigeru Kawai to embody the qualities of the finest concert grand pianos. The EX produces a broad range of tonal colors with a clarity and dynamic range befitting the finest concert halls. These acoustic piano sounds deliver an unparalleled level of expressiveness and nuance when played through premium Onkyo amplification and speaker technologies in the CA49.
A redesigned cheek block control panel provides intuitive access to the CA49's operations. The OLED graphic display clearly indicates selected sounds, settings and values. A rotary volume control, separate headphone jacks and EQ sliders allow for precision control over volume and tone. Dual and split keyboard modes, reverb and brilliance effects with adjustable depth are easily set to suit any performance or practice need.
Premium Cabinet Design
The CA49 possesses an updated cabinet design with a taller body and rounded edges like the larger Concert Artist models for an elegant look. At under 25" deep, the CA49 fits comfortably in smaller spaces. The key cover neatly slides open and can be reversed to prop up music scores. This thoughtful, space-efficient design complements the premium features of the CA49 Digital Piano to provide an all-encompassing piano experience.
