Kawai 5′-10″ Living Room Grand Piano.

Renowned for their expressive tone and dynamic range that allow pianists to communicate with ease, this Kawai model KG-2C Grand Piano plays expressively, accurately and smoothly – like a warm knife through butter.  The KG-series of pianos were immensely popular for Kawai here in the US and Canada.  They were built in the main factory in Hamamatsu, Japan.  The KG-series was re-branded to the RX-series later on and those were also a big hit.  The inevitable comparison to Yamaha pianos discloses that the Kawai usually provides more piano for the money.  They are normally 2-inches longer for the same model in the line. For instance, in this case the comparable model of Yamaha was only 5′-8″ in length.

This piano is a one-owner and was serviced regularly.  It was purchased new in Albuquerque at the long-time Kawai and Steinway & Sons representative, Riedling Music in 1976.  It is in excellent condition; structurally and aesthetically.  The color is classic ebony with a traditional satin finish. We had to do very little in the way of service – mainly a concert tuning.  The previous owner was a serious pianist.  It was traded to the store for a larger Steinway & Sons grand piano. The original bench with storage is included.  It is a duet length.  The middle pedal has a true Sostenuto function.  88 Keys Piano Warehouse & Showroom price – $8950.    Compare to the price of a new Kawai

The tone is European-inspired and mellow; not nearly as bright as some other Japanese manufactured models.  Many serious pianists purchase the Kawai KG-series because of their tonal similarities to vastly more expensive Steinway models and the inability to afford them. 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.  The overall tone quality is balanced across the compass of the keyboard.
