Experience Award-Winning Heritage With the Kawai CA48 Digital Piano

The Kawai Concert Artist (CA) Series is one of the most award-winning lines of digital pianos available today. As a beneficiary of this successful legacy, the CA48 offers a truly powerful best-in-class piano experience. At the heart of CA48 is the acoustic piano sound of the celebrated Shigeru Kawai SK-EX and Kawai EX Concert Grand Pianos. Their proprietary sampling and modeling techniques capture all 88 keys individually to provide the most discerning player with the very best in digital piano tonal quality. Working hand-in-hand with these authentic sounds is the “Grand Feel Compact” wooden-key keyboard action, the most refined keyboard touch available in a high-end introductory model. The elegant modern-meets-classic appearance of the CA48 digital piano is reinforced by the subtle placement of the compact control panel in the keyboard side panel, maintaining a graceful cabinet design that enhances any home décor. Drawing deeply from over 90 years of piano building expertise has created an introductory model of the CA Series that is capable of inspiring players of all levels for years to come.
