The Kawai K400: The Next Generation K-Series
In 1927 Koichi Kawai founded the Kawai Musical Instrument Company in Japan. Koichi has a brain for design and for many years before has worked for the Yamaha Company as one of their chief design experts. He decided to start his own company with the dream of one day building the finest most advanced piano company in the world. Models like the Kawai K400 are a true testament to the Kawai family’s commitment to quality and excellence.
The Kawai K-series was released in the mid-1990’s. This was the first highly successful professional upright line that Kawai had ever produced and was an instant hit. Models like the K25, K15, K3 and K8 are all considered excellent and the new line which includes the Kawai K400, K300 and more was released in 2014. Part of the success of the Kawai piano company over the years has been their constant drive for perfection. Just like companies like Apple or Google, Kawai in the piano industry is known for releasing new products, even when the current product line is still popular and selling well. This creates a very tough situation for competitors who are constantly playing catch up with new technology and innovation.
The Kawai K400 is the first 48″ upright piano from Japan to feature and oversized music desk, and new england style fallboard. Using a similar design and internal components as the K300, the Kawai K400 is an limited production model. The oversized music desk is a feature normally reserved for 52″ upright grand pianos. Music composers, teachers and professional musicians like this feature because it allows for the player to edit music, or act as a desk to write notes on.
