What We Think
The CN range of digital pianos from Kawai offers the pianist further refinements in technology and design , which in turn enhances the players experience of Kawai digital pianos
The Cn 27 model now introduces the very Responsive Hammer iii action keyboard , incorporating 3 sensors per key , giving the player a very articulate feel and response to their playing. The action design is a rigid key springless design, giving a very smooth natural feel to the keys. The key bed is also Graded hammer which means weights are incorporated in the keys , giving the true feel of a acoustic real piano in being heavy at the bottom of the keyboard and lighter at the top. The Cn series also now have the let off key simulation , recreating the “notch” sensation when playing the keys softly , as on a grand piano.The key tops are now finished in synthetic ivorite matt finish , which absorbs fingertip perspiration , again giving greater playing control on the keys.
