The K6 is a high performance pro-series upright. It's a unique piano as it is really almost identical to it's bigger (in price) brother the K8. In fact the only differences are the K8's grand piano styling and sostenuto pedal. Yes that means that the K6 offers class leading features such as brass agraffes, mahogany hammer mouldings and duplex scale at a lower starting price than its competitors. sounds like good buying to me!
Includes: matching adjustable piano bench & 12 years manufacturer's warranty
RELIABILITY & SUPERIOR SOUND QUALITY
The K Series upright pianos offer a level of tone quality and performance that rivals many grand pianos. With sturdy construction for years of reliable service, the K Series models are excellent for auditoriums, schools and other institutional settings.
MILLENNIUM III ACTION
16% FASTER The Millennium III Action features components made of ABS-Carbon, a new composite material created by the infusion of carbon into our existing ABS Styran. ABS-Carbon is incredibly sturdy and rigid, which allowed Kawai to make the action parts lighter without sacrificing strength. The lighter design makes the Millennium III Action tremendously fast and effortless for the player. It is approximately 16% faster in uprights, 25% faster in grands. The repetition and responsiveness are superb. Every exacting detail of the action was exhaustively analysed to meet the stringent demands of the skilled pianist. One prime example of this effort was the addition of a microscopic surface texture on the jack at the point where it meets the hammer. The result of this subtle but important change is a dramatic increase in control during pianissimo playing.
NEW CABINET DESIGN
The introduction of wooden design elements provides a more polished visual shine to the K-series pianos. Alterations in shapes and edges as well as featured additions of longer music racks, a new soft fall system and new brass casters (double for K-3, 5, 6 and 8 models) distinctly different from previous models is designed to achieve an improved practical and visual elegance.
The Softfall fallboard closing system protects players' hands and fingers as well as protects the piano finish from the harm often caused by jarring.
LEADLESS, WEIGHTED KEYS
Weighted piano keys once made from lead have been replaced with iron. Kawai cares about music, and the world.
NEOTEX™ KEY SURFACES
NEOTEX offers the smooth, understated texture of natural ivory and ebony and a semiporous silica-filled surface to absorb natural oils and perspiration of hands. It resists cracking and fading over years of use and is static-resistant to prevent the build-up of unwanted dust. The result is a beautiful, long lasting key surface with exceptional playability.
MAHOGANY HAMMER MOULDINGS
Mahogany is a superior choice for hammer mouldings because of its high ratio strength to weight. Mahogany hammers are light-weight and extremely responsive.
The duplex scale enhances harmonics in the treble range adding
brilliance and richness to the piano’s tone.
TONE RELEASE PORTS
Tone release ports boost volume and improves tonal projection. The openings are inserted in the upper and lower panel.
