The CA49 is the introductory model of the Concert Artist range, and successor to the popular CA48 mid-range digital piano. This updated model retains the Grand Feel Compact wooden key keyboard action and Progressive Harmonic Imaging sound engine of its predecessor, while offering a number of new features and improvements.
As with the latest CA99 and CA79 models, the CA49 incorporates technologies developed in collaboration with premium audio equipment manufacturer, Onkyo, and features a new motherboard and amplification system designed to deliver richer, higher quality sound. The CA49 also boasts an improved cheekblock control panel that includes a modern OLED graphic display for easy operation, and will support Kawaiʼs new PianoRemote app, allowing sounds and settings to also be adjusted using a compatible iOS or Android smartphone or tablet.*
The updated CA49 features enhanced Shigeru Kawai grand piano sounds, providing a more natural and realistic playing experience, while the new Low Volume Balance function improves consistency when practising at reduced volume levels. Finally, the new CA49 possesses an updated cabinet design, adopting the taller body and rounded edge details of the larger Concert Artist models, for a more impressive, premium appearance.
