Get the sounds of the highly acclaimed concert grand pianos, the "Shigeru Kawai EX" and the legendary "EX" as well as the two metre model, the "Shigeru Kawai SK-5" in your very own home.

Three world-class grand pianos in a single instrument

Get the sounds of the highly acclaimed concert grand pianos, the "Shigeru Kawai EX" and the legendary "EX" as well as the two metre model, the "Shigeru Kawai SK-5" in your very own home. Play these fantastic grand pianos on the first class "Grand Feel II" wooden key action and discover the room filling sound provided by the unique soundboard speaker system or with our new SHS headphone technology.

Grand Feel II wooden-key action with Ebony & Ivory Touch key surfaces and ‘Let-Off’ mechanism.

The CA97 digital piano utilises Kawai’s latest Grand Feel II wooden-key keyboard action, which draws upon over 85 years of acoustic piano craftsmanship to provide an exceptionally realistic playing experience. As with a grand piano, all eighty-eight black and white keys are crafted entirely from long pieces of wood, pivoting on a central balance pin in a smooth, seesaw-like motion. The Grand Feel II keys are longer than any other digital piano keyboard action, with the pivot point distance matching that of a Kawai grand piano. When the front of a key is pressed down, the rear rises, throwing a hammer which plays the note. These metal hammers have been micro-engineered to optimize their centre of gravity, and are graded in size and weight to replicate the heavier bass and lighter treble notes of an acoustic grand piano. The forward and backward movements of each hammer are precisely measured using triple-sensor technology, providing faster key repetition, improved responsiveness, and enhanced playing realism. In addition to grade-weighted hammers, the Grand Feel II action also features counterweights placed within each key. As with an acoustic piano, these finely balanced weights help to lighten the touch of the keyboard during pianissimo passages, while adding a feel of greater substance when playing with force. The Grand Feel II keyboard action even reproduces the subtle let-off sensation felt when playing the keys of a grand piano very softly, satisfying the expectations of even the most discerning pianists. Finally, the Grand Feel II keyboard action features Kawai’s Ebony & Ivory Touch key surfaces. These finely textured materials gently absorb moisture to assist playing control, and possess a natural, matte finish that is smooth, but not slippery.

Shigeru Kawai SK-EX, SK-5, and Kawai EX instruments reproduced with Harmonic Imaging XL 88-key sampling

The CA97 digital piano captures the magnificent tone of Kawai’s flagship Shigeru Kawai SK-EX full concert, and Shigeru Kawai SK-5 medium-sized grand pianos. Widely regarded as the ‘premier pianos of Japan’, Shigeru Kawai instruments grace the stages of concert halls and musical institutions throughout the world, and are prized for their exceptional tonal clarity. In addition, the CA97 also features the distinctive sound of Kawai’s highly acclaimed EX concert grand piano, which has frequently been selected by professional pianists in such prestigious events as the Chopin, Tchaikovsky, and Rubinstein international piano competitions, among others. All three instruments have been carefully recorded, meticulously analysed, and faithfully reproduced with full 88-key sampling using the latest Harmonic Imaging™ XL sound technology. This unique process accurately recreates the broad dynamic range of the original grand pianos, affording pianists an extraordinary level of expressiveness ranging from the softest pianissimo to the strongest, boldest fortissimo.

Strong selection of additional instrument sounds

Supplementing the realistic acoustic piano voices, the CA97 digital piano also features an excellent selection of additional instrument sounds, ranging from electric pianos and drawbar and church organs, to strings, human choirs, and even atmospheric synth-style pads, inviting musicians to add greater variety to their performances. Furthermore, the Dual playing mode also allows two different sounds, such as grand piano and strings, to be layered together, while the Split and Four Hands modes divide the keyboard into two independent sections. The volume balances for each playing mode can also be adjusted quickly and easily using the real-time panel controls.

Virtual Technician adjustments to personalise the instrument’s character

The CA97 digital pianos’ Virtual Technician feature allows various characteristics of the selected acoustic piano, electric piano, or harpsichord sound to be shaped at the touch of a button, with settings to adjust voicing and regulation, string, damper, and cabinet resonances, and subtle hammer, damper, and key release noises. It is even possible to adjust the precise tuning and volume of individual notes, before storing one’s personalised instrument configuration to memory.

USB to Device functionality, with MP3/WAV file recording and playback

The CA97 digital piano is equipped with USB connectors that not only allow these instruments to be connected to a computer for MIDI use, but also to load and save data to USB memory devices directly. This ‘USB to Device’ feature allows instrument settings or recorded songs stored in internal memory to be saved to USB for posterity, or standard MIDI files (SMF) downloaded from the internet to be conveniently played back without additional hardware. USB memory devices can also be used to play back MP3 or WAV audio files, allowing musicians to learn the chords or melody for a new piece, or to simply play along with their favourite songs. It is even possible to save performances as MP3 or WAV files for emailing to friends and family, listening to on the move, or for further editing using an audio workstation.

Wide range of connectivity options

The CA97 digital piano features a variety of connectivity options, with Line-level output jacks that allow the instrument to be enjoyed in larger settings such as churches and schools. Standard MIDI and ‘USB to Host’ connectors ensure flexibility when using computers and other electronic instruments, while the stereo Line-in connector provides a convenient method of mixing in audio from a laptop, tablet, or other digital device.

Steve the owner of Keysound has a Crazy laugh but he really knows what he is doing when it comes to the Genos2 and his range of Keyboards and Piano,s. He gave me a really good deal on my Genos2 keyboard and promised after sales backup, whether its over the phone or in the shop. He said to me, simply ring me when you need help and advice about your keyboard. I have rang him 3 times for tips and he is true to his word. Buy KEYSOUND! You wont regret it. Cheers Steve

We had a long trip to Hinkley to See Steve and his wife at Keysound due to Lincoln having no keyboard shops. We were so pleased we did. They were both brilliant hosts for the time we was in the shop. There range of keyboards is excellent and they were demonstrated brilliantly by Steve who was inspirational and gave my son a real appreciation for what can be done. Many thanks

Keysound are the most knowledgeable And helpful people ever I cannot rate them high enough. Our Piano was delivered on time and the guys told me at the time that the packaging was damaged when they unpacked the piano they found it to be damaged and told me before I even seen it. I had the choice to send it back then or keep it until the replacement was found. I kept it within two weeks. I’ve got a Piano. First rate service all around. I would highly recommend them
