Kawai Millennium III Action
In the beginning was
the conventional wooden
piano action—and it was good.
The 1980s brought the second generation,
the Kawai ABS Action—and it was much better.
Now you can experience the third evolution of piano touch:
The Revolutionary Millennium III Action with Carbon Fiber.

The Millennium III Action features components made of ABS-Carbon, a new composite material created by the infusion of carbon fiber into our existing ABS Styran. ABS-Carbon is incredibly sturdy and rigid, which allowed Kawai to make the action parts lighter without sacrificing strength. The lighter design makes the Millennium III Action tremendously fast and effortless for the player. The repetition and responsiveness are superb.

Every detail of the action was exhaustively analyzed to meet the stringent demands of the skilled pianist. One prime example of this effort was the addition of microscopic surface texture on the jack at the point where it meets the hammer. The result of this subtle but important change is a dramatic increase in control during pianissimo playing.
Key Benefits of the Kawai ABS-Carbon Action
Adding carbon fiber to our renowned ABS-Styran parts increased strength by 90%. This
enabled ABS-Carbon parts to be stronger, even though they were made lighter in weight.

With lighter ABS-Carbon parts, the Millennium III Action is approximately 25% faster
than a conventional wooden action
.

ABS-Carbon is more rigid and sends more energy to the hammer with every keystroke,
providing more power with less effort.

The jack is redesigned with a microscopic surface texture to provide unparalleled control
for pianissimo playing.
