An excellent introduction to Kawai digital piano quality
The KDP75 digital piano is the latest addition to Kawai’s highly-respected range of award-winning home instruments, combining an authentic weighted-key keyboard action and realistic grand piano sounds within an attractive, yet highly affordable package.
Featuring 88 grade-weighted keys, the KDP75 keyboard responds like a real acoustic action, while its rich concert grand piano sounds are guaranteed to inspire and impress. The instrument also features USB-MID connectivity, built-in lesson pieces, and a convenient song recorder, making the KDP75 an ideal choice for beginners seeking a starter instrument, or more experienced players looking for a second piano for silent practise with headphones.
Realistic touch & motion: Responsive Hammer Compact keyboard action
- The KDP75’s Responsive Hammer Compact (RHC) keyboard action has been developed to represent the distinctive touch of an acoustic grand piano. Based on the highly-regarded RH keyboard action design, its spring-less mechanism and sturdy construction delivers consistent upward and downward motion, while improved cushioning material helps to reduce keyboard noise, resulting in a smooth, natural, and highly authentic piano playing experience.
Acoustic piano key weighting
Just as acoustic pianos utilise heavier bass hammers and lighter treble hammers, the RHC keyboard action also employs different hammer weights, appropriately graded for each playing range.
Such details provide greater stability during fortissimo passages, while preserving delicate pianissimo control, to satisfy the demands of even the most discerning pianist.
True character in every note
The KDP75 digital piano captures the beautiful sound of Kawai’s highly acclaimed concert grand piano, with all 88 keys of this exceptional instrument meticulously recorded, analysed and faithfully reproduced using advanced Harmonic Imaging technology.
Recording each key individually in this way, preserves the rich harmonic character of the SK-EX concert grand piano, and guarantees that the sound heard when playing any one of the KDP75’s weighted keys is a faithful representation of the original acoustic source
Harmonic Imaging technology
When playing a fine piano, the amount of pressure applied to the keyboard affects not only the volume of the sound produced, but also the unique tonal character of each note. Therefore, in order to construct a realistic acoustic portrait of the SK-EX concert grand piano, not only is each key recorded individually, but also at various different volumes, ranging from gentle pianissimo to thunderous fortissimo.
The KDP75 offers a highly detailed acoustic portrait, employing Kawai’s proprietary Harmonic Imaging sound technology to ensure smooth tonal transitions across the keyboard and throughout the entire dynamic range.
The KDP75’s powerful digital effects engine further enhances the instrument’s core sounds, applying additional reverberation effects that simulate the acoustic environment of a recital room, live stage, or concert hall, bringing performances to life.
Impressive speaker system
(with Low Volume Balance feature)
The KDP75’s stereo speaker system delivers an impressive 18W of output, providing enough power to fill a medium-sized room with it’s beautiful Shigeru Kawai grand piano sounds.
Moreover, when playing through speakers at a reduced volume setting (so as not to disturb family members), the KDP75’s Low Volume Balance feature intelligently adjusts keyboard touch and piano tone characteristics, allowing pianissimo passages to be played smoothly and more naturally.
The result is a rich, vibrant piano tone that delivers breathtaking realism and authenticity.
The Variety of a Digital Piano: Convenience & Flexibility
The elegant KDP75 also includes a variety of convenient digital functions to complement its authentic keyboard touch and rich grand piano sounds. A selection of different instrument voices, built-in lesson songs, and the ability to record and playback one’s performance are just some of the features accessible from the discretely placed cheek-block control panel, while USB-MIDI functionality allows the instrument to be connected to computers and other devices with ease.
The KDP75 is compatible with Kawai’s latest PianoRemote control app for iOS and supported Android devices. This app connects to the piano via the instrument’s integrated USB-MIDI feature, providing an effortless way to change sounds, adjust settings, and enjoy the of built-in music content from an attractive user interface.
