Kawai K200: The Next Generation K-Series
Since the early 1970’s Kawai has been considered one of the largest piano manufacturers in the world and currently has an annual production of over 100,000 units per year. Through streamlining their manufacturing process and focusing heavily on research and development Kawai has been able to create products of unmatched value and uncompromising quality. Models like the Kawai K200, K300, MP11, KDP90 and the Shigeru Kawai concert series are proof of this pursuit of excellence.
The Kawai K-series was released about 20 years ago and was the first upright piano line since the Yamaha U-series to be considered mass produced and professional grade by the industry rating system. The previous generation (K15, K2, K3, K5, K6, K8) was upgraded in 2014 to the Kawai K200, K300, K400, K500 and K800. Although the changes were minor the new line of of K-series uprights from Kawai are the best upright pianos Kawai has ever produced.
The Kawai K200 at 46″ is an exiting new model from Kawai. Released in 2014 to replace the Kawai K2, this model is an ideal size for a home, teaching studio, or even a small venue. The Kawai K200 and K300 use similar components and design features, except the Kawai K200 uses a shorter string length and smaller soundboard. Still, for a piano this size it has a very rich full sound, and excellent projection.
Here are some features on the brand new Kawai K200:
- Millenium 3 Carbon Fiber High Performance Action
- 100% Built and Assembled in Japan
- Extra Long #1 Bass String
- Mahogany Hammer Mouldings
- Longer Key Length
