The K-500 is 130cm tall and manufactured in Hamamatsu, Japan. It benefits from Kawai’s precise and responsive ABS Carbon Millennium III action and longer keys than you would normally find on a piano of this type, offering greater levels of control and a better overall feel.

Kawai have carefully engineered a level of structural rigidity that ensures clarity of tone across the keyboard, using strong back posts and a very stable aluminium action rail. This combines with a depth and flexibility of sound provided by the tapered, solid spruce soundboard to make the K-500 a rewarding playing experience. It is ideal for more advanced players who are unable to accommodate a grand piano, but this responsive instrument is also inspiring for those at an earlier stage in their piano playing journey.

Players who wish to enjoy such a rewarding acoustic instrument, but also require the private practicing facilities offered by a digital piano will find the ATX-3 version of the K-500, with the new Anytime X3 silent system perfect for their requirements (RRP £10,555).

There is also a new AURES version which adds a brilliantly flexible soundboard speaker system to the ATX-3 specification (RRP £11,111).
