The Shigeru Kawai SK3 Grand Piano
Shigeru Kawai was the second generation family member who was the owner and president of Kawai Global from the 1960’s up until the early 2000’s. His vision in the 1970’s was to design and build the most exclusive piano that Kawai had ever produced. What he didn’t realize was that we was about to create one of the finest pianos the world has ever seen – one that would impress even the most sophisticated pianists.
The Shigeru Kawai series of grand pianos is Kawai’s ultimate effort to produce the world’s finest grand pianos. It was first released in year 2000. After almost 30 years of collecting rare and exotic woods, perfecting designs, and consulting some of the best piano designers in the world, the Shigeru Kawai was released. Limited to two hundred per year, these limited production instruments were very well received by the artist community and quickly were regarded as some of the finest pianos available. There are currently 12 master piano artisans who build the Shigeru Kawai in Kawai’s state of the art research and development facility.
Since the release of the Shigeru Kawai SK3 grand piano, many of the world’s finest musicians from the Jazz to the Classical world have expressed their appreciation for the Shigeru Kawai. With a lighting fast carbon fiber action, exotic “Ezo” sitka spruce for the soundboard, and cold pressed hammers, these pianos are a real joy for any advanced pianist to play . There are currently six sizes available to choose from, and at 6’2″ the Shigeru Kawai SK3 is suitable for a larger home, or even a medium sized venue.
