Kawai has made a name for themselves as a quality piano manufacturer with a rich history. Here are just a few reasons why purchasing a Kawai piano from Chupp's Piano Service is a wise decision.
1: Quality Manufacturing.
With dozens of respected piano companies competing for a share of the market, many have moved their production to places like China in an attempt to reduce their overhead. Although it does reduce production costs it can come at a steep drop in quality. Kawai still has their headquarters and factories in Japan and retain the high quality and control expected by artists around the world.
2: Pioneering Advancement.
Kawai is well known and respected for their innovation when it comes to the parts that go into their many pianos. In 1971 Kawai began utilizing ABS for pieces of their piano actions. Why did they do this? According to tests completed in 1998 the ABS parts were more consistent in size, were over 50% stronger and were much more resistant to environmental problems. Recently Kawai has combined their ABS with carbon fibers to create an ABS Carbon. This is much stronger than their previous design and allows for lighter parts, creating a quicker and more responsive action. Although some, including competitors have attempted to discredit the ‘plastic’ parts, they have proved to be long lasting and very precise. Kawai hasn’t been afraid to try new things and this has benefited the music industry as a whole. Recently legendary American piano manufacturer Mason & Hamlin began utilizing very similar parts in their new pianos.
