Kawai K-800 AS Upright Piano Black
What We Think
The Kawai K800 AS is the flagship model of the Kawai K series; it is the ultimate in upright piano craftsmanship. The piano is 134 cm high and on this model has a Grand style music rest, a very nice feature the piano is exceptional to play and gives a powerful strong full professional sound.
As in the other K series models the piano has the Millennium iii upright action with ABS carbon composites, which is absolutely fantastic and responsive to play. And has Neotex key surfaces giving a real feel of Ivory and ebony to the playing surfaces.
This model now has full Duplex scaling (upper& lower) which gives greater accuracy of tuning and now has string Agraffes which further help in the stability of the tuning. The hammers are double felted with Royal George felt and with mahogany cores. The heart of any piano is the soundboard and is solid spruce; this model now has 6 back posts and 12 ribs attached to the soundboard, giving a strong responsive sound to the whole piano.
The soft fall lid as from the K500 now has a lock fitted and the extra wide music rest which is very useful to hold longer scores of music. The piano has 3 pedals, and on this model has a True Sostenuto pedal. The piano is fitted with double castors for easier movement. The model is only available in black polish.
The K-800 AS is the epitome of upright piano craftsmanship. Its elegant form and exceptional tone will fulfill the needs of any professional teaching studio or intimate performance setting.
