Kawai Piano US – Proudly Made in America.
Voted “Acoustic Piano Line of the Year” five times by the industry magazine MMR, (Musical Merchandise Review). Renowned for their expressive tone and dynamic range that allow pianists to communicate with ease, this Kawai piano plays expressively, accurately and smoothly – like a warm knife through butter. The tone of the Kawai model 601-T console piano is European-inspired and mellow; not nearly as bright as some other Japanese manufacturers, though this model was built in their US factory in California. Many classical musicians own a Kawai piano as a low-cost alternative to an expensive Steinway & Sons or European model. A growing number of colleges and universities are becoming All Kawai schools, including our own New Mexico State University in Las Cruces. Having quality instruments to play in their studies is a strong selling point for most music students and in the competition between schools, this helps increase that school’s enrollment. Low-maintenance pianos like the Kawai are also an incentive for a school with an eye on their Music Department’s budget and its recurring costs.

This piano is an economical well-built instrument that will offer decades of reliable enjoyment. Structurally it is sound and aesthetically in very good condition. Its condition is attributable to the modest amount of playing time it has received. It has lived here in Albuquerque for its entire life, so it is happily acclimated and well-adjusted to our unique climate. The Kawai model 601-T console piano is well-regarded and known to be reliable and virtually maintenance free. We had to do very little in the way of service in our piano restoration shop, tightening of the action screws, setting the strings, some minor regulating and then a concert tuning. The finish is a traditional American style satin lacquer American walnut finish. The cabinet style is Italian Provincial and features carved and fluted legs. The music rack is stylish and there is a sturdy music desk designed for heavy music books or long musical scores. The middle pedal is a mute rail for quiet play or practice. The original matching bench with storage is included. We also include professional first-floor, local delivery.
