Kawai KND21: The World’s Best 48″ Alternative To Used Japanese Yamaha’s and Kawai’s
Anyone shopping for a piano – particularly if it’s your first instrument – is bound to consider used. And it doesn’t take long before used Yamaha and Kawai upright pianos from the 1980’s and 1990’s start popping up as decent alternatives to over-spending, or purchasing a digital. And until now, if you wanted to spend ~$5000 on a decent 48″ piano, that was essentially your only choice. Until now.
Kawai’s first serious contender to the Yamaha U1 was the K25, and many say that it was this model which heralded the start of the Kawai Golden Age that we find ourselves in now, with the K series consistently the top-selling upright line in Canada for the last 7 years. The K25 was a 48″ from Japan that Kawai produced in the 10,000’s, filling college practice rooms and homes around the world.
With the ND21, Kawai has re-issued the K25 as an aggressively-priced competitor to the used Japanese segment, and it’s produced entirely at their Indonesian factory – the very same factory which Kawai uses to produce the GL10 and the Boston 118 for Steinway.
Here are some features on the brand new Kawai ND21:
- Premium Nickel Plating on all hardware
- 100% Built and Assembled by Kawai – no outsourcing
- Extra Long #1 Bass String
- Mahogany Hammer Moldings
- Longer Key Length
- Full 10 year Parts and Labour Warranty
