We have some popular models of piano here at the Piano Shop Bath, and you might like to know a bit about them and what makes them best sellers. Here are three of the best:
The Kawai K300 upright piano is one of Kawai’s best sellers, and this trend is very much being repeated here in our showroom. Closely followed by the slightly smaller Kawai K200, the Kawai K300 features the ‘Millenium III’ action that utilises ABS carbon parts. Both significantly stronger and lighter than traditional wood parts, ABS carbon provides a quicker, more responsive action that is sensitive to even the most delicate of playing. Advance players in particular will greatly appreciate this level of control, where precision is needed at the most tender musical moments. Combine this with the rich Kawai tone, and you can see why this one of our most popular pianos from Kawai.
A well established recognized industry standard, the Yamaha U1 just keeps maintaining its popularity with pianists and music institutions everywhere. You will find them in many practise rooms of schools and conservatoires, why? Well they are extremely well designed and rugged, and built for years of playing. The models we have here range from the late 70’s to present day, and they all have fine tone with great action. The action is very responsive and balanced across the whole keyboard, and pianists for years have been drawn to Yamaha’s resonant, clear tone. The Yamaha U1 is also a slightly smaller cabinet than its larger sibling, the Yamaha U3, meaning it is a less imposing prospect for whichever room it moves into. The long established reputation of both the Yamaha U1 and U3 means that they are also a sound investment, holding the value for many years after. An all round excellent upright piano.
We also sell Kawai digital pianos, as sometimes our customers need a more portable option that does not take up as much space as an acoustic piano. The Kawai CN25 is probably the most popular option in the range due to its action and size. Its sleek cabinet design is minimal yet gives you exactly what you need, a full size digital piano with weighted keys and a great piano sound. The sound itself is recorded from Kawai’s EX grand piano, their top class concert grand piano that wowed critics around the world. You really hear the depth of the recorded sound on the deep chiming bass notes, as well as the treble notes which are devoid of the usual tinny sound from earlier digital pianos. The Kawai CN25 features the ‘Hammer Action III’ technology, an extremely smooth digital piano action that does not feel springy, but weighted and balanced, a long way towards the kind of feel you would expect on an acoustic piano. Overall a great package and price for those of you who simply a very good digital piano to play and practise on.
