Kawai pianos have been produced in Japan since 1927. The company's fundamental principles have always been centred on quality, music appreciation and the quest for excellence. Kawai are the 2nd largest piano manufacturer in the world and the company is still run by the Kawai family. Mr Hirotaka Kawai is the president.
Not the result of mere assembly, every Kawai professional upright piano is crafted with meticulous skill and care. Kawai artisans begin with the finest materials and create each instrument with a harmonious blend of advanced technology and old-world craftsmanship. The result embodies the passionate quest for excellence that has characterised three generations of Kawai family leadership.
We have just become a "Kawai Selection Centre". Pictured here is Neil Sale of Kawai UK presenting John and William with our new sign. We have over 10 Kawai pianos on display with the technical expertise to service them.
