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.
