Kawai CL-36 Digital Piano in Black
What We Think
The CL range of digital pianos from Kawai are ultra compact in design and build, offering great looks and sound to those people who live in modern type accommodations and need that minimalistic unit to fit in. Finished in a slimline cabinet design they would grace any living space, bedroom or office space. This range has the RH action on board with Ivorite key tops for a realistic piano feel . The sound source is the incomparable Kawai Ex grand piano sample , with Kawais progressive Harmonic Imagining 88 key sampling, the sound is fantastic. There are a total of 15 sounds on this model through electric pianos, organs strings etc. As with virtually all Kawai models it has the built in Lesson feature allowing the budding pianist to practice pieces from the Acclaimed Alfred piano tutor series of books. If you are having lessons in your home the Cl36 also has the split keyboard four hands feature, allowing you and your tutor to play the keyboard at the same time. There is also a Metronome built in to again help you with learning and keep you in time with your pieces. Again on most kawai models, is the Concert Magic feature allowing the non player to enjoy creating music on the piano, by selecting a song from the on boards songs and playing Any key in time, creating music. The piano is available in satin black , satin white and traditional rosewood. The piano has 3 foot pedals and a sound output of 2 x15 watts which is really great for this size of piano.
