43-1/2″ Italian Provincial Designer Piano.

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 most of its entire life so it is happily acclimated to our unique climate.  The Kawai model 801-I console piano is 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.  Rather than a simple key cover, this model sports a two-piece Boston fallboard that closes easily and will not scratch the sides of the cabinet.  The finish is a traditional American style satin lacquer light-toned walnut.  The cabinet style is Italian Provincial.  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 bench with storage is included.  We also include professional first-floor, local delivery.

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 is European-inspired and mellow; not nearly as bright as some other Japanese-manufactured models.  Many classical musicians own a Kawai piano as a low-cost alternative to an expensive Steinway & Sons or European model.  It has a warmth that is very pleasant.  The duration of tone is lengthy and lends itself to classical music.  The treble has a nice singing quality.  The bass response is excellent given the size of the scale. At 43-1/2 inches tall it is actually taller than the average console that ranges from 40-42 inches, so the string length and soundboard area are enhanced.  The overall tone quality is balanced across the compass of the keyboard.
