Kawai 46″ Traditional Studio Upright Piano
This piano is a long-term single-owner and serviced regularly. This model was built in the main Kawai piano factory in Hamamatsu, Japan giving it the advantage of nearly perfect quality control conditions the factory is known for. 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 its entire life so it is happily acclimated to our unique climate. The Kawai model UST-6 studio upright piano is known to be virtually maintenance free. We had to do very little in the way of service; tightening of the action screws, setting the strings, some minor regulating and then a concert tuning. The original bench is included. The finish is a traditional American style satin lacquer light-toned walnut.
Renowned for their expressive tone and dynamic range that allow pianists to communicate with ease, this Kawai model UST-6 studio upright 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. 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. 88 Keys Piano Warehouse & Showroom price – $2450.
