ADDITIONAL ELEMENTS OF RX BLAK SERIES CONSTRUCTION

Reinforced Keybeb
Steel Reinforced Keybed
The RX BLAK Series keybeds are made of extremely strong, laminated hardwoods. Kawai also reinforces each keybed with an underside steel support beam for maximum stability.
Multi-grip Pinblock
Multi-Grip Pinblock
Kawai’s RX BLAK Series Multi-Grip 11-ply pinblock is designed for maximum tuning stability in all climates, while also allowing precise control of the pin when the piano is tuned. The alternating cross-grain laminates made of the finest North American hard rock maple assure that the tuning pins remain tightly fitted through a lifetime of music making. This reduces maintenance and provides a more enjoyable playing experience.
Dual Duplex Scale
Dual Duplex Scaling
Kawai’s Dual Duplex Scaling is an important design element that helps to make possible the beautiful singing quality of the RX BLAK Series grand pianos. Duplex Scaling allows the extreme ends of the piano’s strings to vibrate and produce harmonics that enhance tone. Kawai’s Dual Duplex design combines a front duplex region (between the tuning pins and agraffes) with a similar rear duplex region (between the aliquots and the bridge) to add a double measure of harmonic richness, brilliance, complexity and sustain to the piano’s tone.
Hard  Brass Agraffes
Agraffes
Hard brass agraffes—positioned through precise CNC drilling of the iron plate—ensure accuracy of string alignment, spacing and angles for the greatest uniformity of tone.  They also allow the most precise measurement of “speaking length" for the strings and provide smooth string movement for ease of tuning.
Environmental Responsibility
Environmental Responsibility
In 1997, Kawai’s Ryuyo Grand Piano facility became the first manufacturing plant in the piano industry to receive ISO 14001, the world’s foremost certification for excellence in environmental management. In 1998, Kawai was privileged to receive a second ISO 14001 certification recognizing exceptional achievement in re-forestation, energy conservation, waste reduction and natural resource preservation at our highly respected Maisaka Upright Piano Factory. In 1999, Kawai made history for a third time when ISO 14001 certification was awarded to our Märchen Digital Piano Facility. This unceasing pursuit of environmental excellence is our way of showing that we care about our world... and you.
