The Truth About ABS

THE ELEMENTS OF K SERIES INNOVATIVE DESIGN

K-8 Tone Port
Full Spectrum Tone Release System (K-8)
The K-8 offers two large tone release ports behind the music rack that allow for maximum sound projection across the full spectrum of tone. Another long, thinner port just above the lower panel provides additional ambient tone release.
Inverse Tone Release System
Inverse Tone Release System (K-6 and K-5)
The Inverse Tone Release System utilizes an innovative new method for releasing tone. The front panel accent bars are designed with hidden tone release ports positioned in "inverse" order. On the bass side of the piano, more tone is released on the lower end of the bar. On the treble side, more tone is released on the upper end of the bar. Like the K-8, a long port above the lower panel provides additional ambient tone release and balanced projection
K Series Soundbards
Soundboard Design
K Series soundboards are made of solid quarter-sawn, carefully chosen and scientifically tested to exceed Kawai's demanding resonance standards for superior tone. For the K-3 and K-2, the soundboard area, string lengths and number of ribs are maximized to exceed the specifications of other pianos and provide greater power and resonance.
Mahogany Hammer Moudlings
Mahogany Hammer Mouldings (K-8, K-6 and K-5)
Mahogany is a superior choice for hammer mouldings because of its high ratio of strength to weight. Mahogany hammers are light weight and extremely responsive.
Duplex Scale
Duplex Scale (K-8 and K-6)
The duplex scale enhances harmonics in the treble range adding brilliance and richness to the piano's tone.
Agraffes
Agraffes (K-8 and K-6)
Agraffes ensure accuracy in string alignment, spacing and angles to produce greater uniformity of tone and consistent "speaking length" for each note.
K Series Slow Fall Fallboard
"Soft Fall" Fallboard
Our ultra-slow, "Soft Fall" fallboard closing system with dual-damping mechanism protects hands and the piano's finish from the harm that a jarring close might cause.
Neotex Key Surfaces
NEOTEX™ Key Surfaces (K-8, K-6, K5)
K Series weighted and balanced keys feature Kawai's exclusive NEOTEX key surfaces formulated with cellulose fiber. NEOTEX offers the smooth, understated texture of natural ivory and ebony – and a semi-porous silica-filled surface to absorb the hand's natural oils and perspiration. It resists cracking and fading over years of use – and is static-resistant to prevent the build-up of unwanted dust. The result is a beautiful, long lasting key surface with exceptional playability.
K Series Music Rack
Music Rack
All K Series models feature a wide music rack that can accommodate multiple music scores. Simulated leather material on the music rack surface prevents music from slipping.
Kawai Ten Year Full Warrancy
