122cm tall upright piano in a traditional style cabinet
The first model to be produced in Japan and new for this year, the elegant K-400 measures 122cm tall and benefits from extended key length and solid mahogany hammers.
A great choice for the home or school, the K-400 is equipped with the acclaimed Millennium III ABS-Carbon action for a class leading level of response.
Its beautiful cabinet design incorporates a tilting music desk and soft closing, dual hinge fallboard.
The soundboard and ribs are considered the most important sound producing components of a piano, with both the materials used and the manner in which they are assembled greatly affecting volume and tonal quality. The K-400 soundboard is produced using the finest quality straight-grained spruce, carefully selected and scientifically tested to exceed KAWAI’s demanding resonance standards, ensuring exceptional dynamic range and outstanding tonal balance across the entire sound spectrum.
The K-400 features the specially developed Millennium III ABS-Carbon upright piano action, combining carbon fibre with ABS to produce a lightweight yet incredibly strong and reliable mechanism. To improve the action’s climatic stability, KAWAI pioneered the use of aluminium action rails, aluminium hammer rest rails and ABS action parts – addressing many of the problems associated with wooden components, such as breakage under continual high stress, and shrinking/swelling due to changes in temperature and humidity. Longer keys make playing easier and provide more even response from the front to the back of the playing surface. The benefits to the player are greater control and more power with less effort.
With attractive traditional style cabinetry and a double-hinged, soft closing fallboard, the K-400 is equally suited to the home environment and school practice room.
In addition to the exceptionally large solid spruce soundboard, the K-400 also utilises five fully laminated back posts, delivering optimum rigidity and enhanced tuning stability.
