Product Highlights

Product Description

Another first for an iconic piano company, the CA48 is the first Kawai 88-key digital piano to utilize the Grand Feel Compact wooden-key keyboard action. Additional features are the beautiful SK-EX and EX concert grand piano sounds, and modern Bluetooth® connectivity, the piano-focused CA48 offers many of the strengths of the premium Concert Artist models within a more compact and affordable package.

Kawai CA48 Digital Piano Features
  • Convenience & Flexibility
  • Powerful 4-speaker output system
  • Harmonic Imaging technology
  • Triple sensor key detection
  • Integrated Bluetooth 4.0 wireless technology
Grand Feel Compact wooden-key keyboard action
As its name suggest, the GF Compact action has been designed to reproduce the authentic touch weight characteristics of the industry-leading Grand Feel keyboard actions, within a smaller form factor. The new action retains the long wooden keysticks used for all 88 black and white keys, and the familiar ‘seesaw’ mechanism employed by acoustic grand piano actions for centuries. However, despite its smaller unit size, GF Compact features an extended key pivot length, providing a more consistent touch weight when playing towards the rear of the keyboard. This crucial detail ensures the CA48 delivers the most realistic playing experience in its class, surpassing even the venerable RM3 Grand actions utilized by its predecessors.

Triple sensor key detection
The Grand Feel Compact keyboard action utilizes an accurate triple-sensor key detection system for enhanced playing realism. The added third sensor improves responsiveness when playing the same key repeatedly, and unlike conventional two sensor keyboard actions found in many digital pianos, allows the sound of a single note to be gradually ‘layered’ without the previous tone being lost. In addition, Kawai’s action technology also monitors the speed at which each key is lifted, influencing the release character of piano sounds, and providing a greater range of expression between staccato and legato playing.

Built-in lesson function
The CA48’s convenient lesson function allows aspiring pianists to learn piano with classical Czerny, Burgmüller, and Beyer etudes, or collections of songs from the popular Alfred’s Basic Piano course books. The left and right hand parts of each etude/song can be practiced separately, using the adjustable metronome feature to perfect timing in difficult passages, before recording the completed piece for self-evaluation.
