T Cambridge 12 he K-200 is a 114cm traditional upright, with subtle contemporary design touches, and is one of Kawai’s best-selling pianos. It is a perfect upgrade from a digital piano, and great for inspiring young players without daunting them with its size. Many lapsed players return to the piano in their 30s as life begins to settle, and at retirement, and the K-200 makes good sense as a step back into owning an acoustic piano. It is also an option for smaller practice-rooms in schools, where the combination of affordability and durability makes good sense.
The K-200 benefits from the upright version of Kawai’s Millennium III action, which combines traditional wood with light, strong ABS Carbon parts to provide a responsive and involving playing experience. The sound combines the depth of tone commonly associated with Kawai uprights, with a clarity that makes playing intricate textures a delight. On a practical level, there is a slow-fall mechanism to prevent trapped hands, and a well-sized music desk to accommodate your sheet music. A K-200 has recently been used by Yorkshire band Scars On 45 for recording their forthcoming third album. An ATX2 hybrid version is also available for £5,999 (RRP) in ebony polished or £6,444 (RRP) in white or mahogany polish. This combines the full acoustic K-200 with digital connectivity and an option to practice privately with headphones offered by Kawai’s Anytime X2 system. All variants are also available with silver fittings instead of traditional brass.
