Kawai CN27 Uses the Responsive Hammer Action III (RHIII) Action with Let-Off and Triple Sensor Detection
The Kawai CN27 34” Digital Upright Piano use the Responsive Hammer Action III (RHIII) action an industry-standard design where the pivot point is placed at the back of the key, not in the middle. The CN27 Digital action utilizes a hammer component under the keys that creates a mechanical movement and feels similar to an acoustic piano. Additionally, the hammer weights are “graded” where the left-hand, or bass, keys are heaviest. As you move up the keyboard the hammers gradually become lighter. This simulates the same characteristic found in an acoustic pianos action where the hammers are larger in the bass region and gradually get smaller as you move up the keyboard.

The Real Hammer - Responsive Hammer Action III (RHIII) actions is the latest version of Kawai’s plastic-key actions. In addition to the aforementioned features, they offer Ivory-touch key surfaces, triple sensor key detection, and Let-off. The RHIII adds Ebony-touch key surfaces and key counterbalancing.

Kawai CN Upright Pianos

Touch. Tone. Strength. Character. Precision. Experience.
Tradition and Innovative Spirit. The essence of CN Kawai

The celebrated tradition and technology that supports the sounds and remarkable distinctive tonal character produced by the CN Kawai are created by the craftsmen who dedicate their lives to building the world’s finest and most advanced pianos empowered with life, breadth and depth that lasts for generations.

Every single step, each intricately detailed design, is performed by our craftsmen drawing upon their years of experience to achieve their relentless pursuit of perfection. It’s this good, old-fashioned care and great individual pride that enables Kawai pianos to attract the greatest musicians from around the world.
For over 90 years, Kawai has been the architect of the modern piano boldly pioneering the use of state-of-the-art materials and ideas to advance the piano art form. Building upon decades of experience and tradition, our celebrated technology delivers extraordinary touch and tone that produces lasting enjoyment and peak performance.

Purity of Tone that Fills the Room... The Shigeru Kawai SK-EXL Concert Grand Piano is widely regarded by professional pianists and piano technicians as one of the finest instruments in the world. Hand-built over many months by Master Piano Artisans at the Shigeru Kawai Piano Research Laboratory in Ryuyo, Japan, each SK-EXL Concert Grand undergoes a through regulation and refinement process in a specially-designed anechoic chamber. Following this lengthy crafting process, the completed SK-EXL Piano receives a final series of rigorous quality inspections before eventually taking center stage in the world’s most prestigious musical institutions and concert halls.

88-Key Piano Sampling - The beautiful sound of the Shigeru Kawai SK-EXL Concert Grand Piano is at the heart of the CP Concert Performer Digital Series Sound, with all 88 keys of this world-class instrument painstakingly recorded, carefully analyzed and accurately reproduced as high-fidelity digital audio. Recording each key individually in this way (rather than stretching the same tone over several different notes) preserves the rich harmonic character of the SK-EXL Concert Grand Piano and guarantees that the sound heard when playing any of the Concert Performer’s keys is a faithful representation of the original acoustic source.

Touch Texture. Responsive Fast Action.
Beautiful Quality of ‘Singing Strings’. Brilliant Rich Harmonics and Depth.


Playing the piano is as much an experience of "touch" as it is of tone. Day after day, the musician's hands come in contact with the piano keys. The piano's responsiveness can make a critical difference that can affect the player's performance, confidence and overall playing enjoyment. Consistent, ultra-responsive touch is a Kawai tradition.


The extraordinary combination of strength and stability allows the CN piano action to transfer energy with unparalleled efficiency, power, precision and nuance for a superb playing experience, for increased tone production that will last over time better than any other piano.

A Rare Treasure… A limited number of all Kawai instruments will ever bear the name CN. The rigorous degree of work and technology keeps these instruments rare in both character and quantity. Each CN piano is a limited edition treasure numbered by year of creation.
