KAWAI Grand Appearance - Control Panel Embedded in Left Cheekblock
Subtly concealing its impressive digital features, the Concert Artist’s main control panel is discreetly embedded within the piano’s left cheek block. This helps to preserve the instrument’s grand appearance, and allows performers to enjoy the simple pleasure of playing music without the distraction of flashing lights and rows of buttons.

And for added convenience, the CA97’s USB and dual headphone jacks are separated from the instrument’s main connections panel, mounted beneath the keyboard in an accessible position, yet hidden from the player’s eye-line.

KAWAI Digital CA97 Grand Feel Design: Character & Purpose
Sitting down at the Concert Artist, the first thing that strikes the player is the instrument’s flat fascia and tall upper board, giving the impression of a traditional grand piano and immediately elevating the musical aspirations of the performer.  The distinctive KAWAI logo – representing over 90 years of acoustic piano crafting excellence – adorns the CA97’s fallboard, its metallic finish glimmers in the light, capturing the graceful movements of the player’s hands below.

KAWAI Adjustable Music Desk
The instrument’s broad music rest is designed to accommodate the most ambitious musical works, with smoothly rounded edges and simulated leather lining the base.

As with a grand piano, the viewing angle of the Concert Artist’s music rest can be adjusted to suit the performer’s playing position, or laid flat for convenience when notating scores or sketching musical ideas.

KAWAI Grand Feel Pedal System
Reinforcing the Classic Series’ reputation as the most realistic digital piano is Kawai’s Grand Feel Pedal System. This unique feature replicates the individual weighting of the damper, soft, and sostenuto pedals of the SK-EX and EX concert grand pianos to further enhance the CA97’s acoustic-like authenticity.

Moreover, it is also possible to adjust the half-pedal sensitivity of the damper pedal, and effectiveness of the soft pedal using specially engineered Virtual Technician parameters, allowing pianists to personalize the instrument’s response to match their individual pedaling technique.
KAWAI Cabinet Finishes
The CA97 is available in two attractive cabinet finishes: Premium Rosewood and Premium Satin Black allowing musicians to coordinate their piano with a range of modern interiors.
Kawai Digital CA97 Design wooden-key action, Harmonic Imaging sound technology,
Shigeru Kawai SK-EX and SK-5 Sound Samples, Soundboard Speaker System.
