We have decided to take a closer look at the Kawai K500 upright piano, to give you a bit more insight to a highly regarded model in the K series of upright pianos. Here at the Piano Shop Bath, the Kawai K500 has become a popular choice with our customers. This is in large part due to where it sits in the range, almost in the middle of the available models. It is a larger cabinet piano, so like the K600 and K800 it has longer bass strings which give a richer overall tone, as well as bass notes that are very robust in sound. However being slightly smaller than the aforementioned models, it is not as loud, providing a volume level which suits people who might find the K600 and K800 too powerful.
